Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Last month I took part in the Grow.Swap.Share blog swap hosted by My Favorite Finds and White Lights on Wednesday.  It was such a fun experience to swap blogs with another blogger, and to host someone who shared a craft with my readers.  The recipe that I shared as part of the swap was for Banana Oatmeal Muffins.  I wanted to share it with you today, just in case you missed it!
We are huge banana bread eaters in our house.  So much so, that our oldest son knows that it takes 3 bananas to make banana bread.  It's quite funny actually...sometimes he "convinces" us to save the bananas so that we can make bread.  Well this week, once again, those last 3 ripe bananas were staring at me.  But this week I was craving muffins, not banana bread, so off to the trusty cookbooks to search out a recipe.  I found one for Banana Oatmeal Muffins, here is the recipe: (Source: Company's Coming: Muffins & More)

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs
1/4 cup cooking oil
1/4 cup milk
3 bananas, ripe and mashed

Preheat oven to 400F.

In a large bowl, beat eggs until frothy.  Mix in oil, milk and bananas. 

In a second bowl, mix together the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Slowly add to the wet ingredients, mixing only to moisten.  The batter will be lumpy.  Fill lined or greased muffin cups 3/4 full.  Bake for 18-23 minutes or until muffins are done.

VERDICT:
An easy muffin to make, and very popular with my boys.  The recipe made 12 regular muffins for us and 9 mini muffins for our son - which are the perfect snacking size for him both at home and at preschool.  These didn't last long in our house, that's for sure!  As J would say, this one's a keeper!
