I love baking with Bananas, they are so easy to work with and we tend to often have bananas from the weekly grocery shop go brown on us! The kids either eat one a day or none a day, there seems to be no middle ground!
But that is good for me as it means I can use the brown bananas in baking. I have several banana recipes on the blog but feel like I can always have more so I have been pouring over the recipe books to find some new ones. Well new to me!
I have an abundance of rolled oats in the cupboard at the moment so this recipe was meant to be. It is a lovely Banana Oat Muffin that is soft and moist with a tasty brown sugar, cinnamon, butter & oats topping which finishes it off beautifully. Simple ingredients.
To make this recipe you will need
Bananas – really really ripe ones!
Muffin recipes are always easy as they are simply a matter of combining the wet and dry ingredients. There are a few tips I have for this recipe to be a success.
The first tip is that the bananas need to be super ripe and brown. This adds to both the flavour and moisture of the muffins. If you don’t use super ripe bananas you will find the banana flavour is not as strong and they may be a little on the dry side. So leave those bananas for an extra day or two!
The next tip is one for all muffins and that is to not over mix them. If you over beat muffins they tend to be tough and rise weirdly and that doesn’t sound good at all!
I have amended this recipe a little from the original as I like to do, adding another egg and lovely topping. The topping is simply a combination of brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and rolled oats. You can leave this out but it really does add something special to finish the muffin.
These take about 20 minutes to bake for a standard size muffin, they are baked when the topping is lightly golden and they spring back to the touch.
These will freeze well. To freeze muffins you want to either store them in an airtight container or freeze them in one layer then transfer them to a ziplock bag and ensure it is completely airtight and then store in the freezer.
These muffins would be perfect as a breakfast muffin, for lunchboxes or afternoon tea – or a sneaky dessert warmed with yoghurt!

These are lovely, did not have enough rolled oats so subbed with almond meal and 1/2 cup quick oats(also used in topping), a ‘keeper’ recipe!
Wonderful! So pleased you enjoyed it and great it worked with the almond meal and oats.
Amazing recipe! I dropped the amount of rolled oats by 1/4 c and added choc chips instead. Turned out great and toddler LOVED them
Brilliant! So pleased you enjoyed it.
