Baked Banana and Oat Muffin is one of my all time favorites. These muffins are extremely easy to make and taste great. I usually bake them on special occasions, such as birthdays or holidays, as well as in my midweek breakfast. They’re extremely easy to make, but the great thing about banana and oat muffins is that you can take the easiest of recipes and expand on it to create your own unique creations.
First things first, you need to gather your ingredients. Combine all the dry ingredients except for the bananas and oatmeal. Blend the dry ingredients together until they are completely combined. Now, in a microwave-safe bowl, stir in your dry mixture until completely blended, and then add in your wet mixture.
Now, if you were going to bake the muffins in an oven, you would want to bake your banana mixture at the same temperature and for the same amount of time that you bake your regular oatmeal. Therefore, you would start by preheating the oven and setting the timer to bake for about one hour, or until your bananas are soft and malleable. Once your bananas are ready, take them from the microwave and place them on a cooling rack set above your prepared muffins. After about thirty minutes, pop your muffins into the preheated oven.
The great thing about banana oat muffins is that you can eat them plain, with a dip, or mixed with fruit juice and milk. These muffins are also wonderful after being soaked in dark cherries for an hour or two and then served with some whipped cream and berries on top. Mmmm! A real treat!
Banana and oat muffins are always a hit at breakfast when guests arrive. Baking the bananas and oats together before serving add a unique flavor to any meal, or just an all time favorite breakfast food. When baking, always remember to use a muffin tin with a large round bottom. This helps prevent the muffin from losing its shape or shrinkage due to heating. You do not want the muffin to be too thin when baking, or else it will lose its flavor.
When it comes to making banana oat cookies, you only need three basic ingredients. You need: a banana, a handful of oats, and brown sugar. The actual recipe for these is rather simple, as long as you have all of your ingredients ready before you begin. If you find that the mix does not come together well, or if you find that you need to add more than one of any of these ingredients, simply start over and make any necessary adjustments.
