These delicious Banana Oat Muffins are naturally sweetened and use basic ingredients like whole wheat flour, bananas, oats, applesauce and honey. They make a great healthy breakfast or hearty snack and freeze well, too.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a regular muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or line with muffin liners.
In a large bowl, beat the egg, brown sugar, yogurt, milk, applesauce, honey, and vanilla and mix until well combined.
Mash the bananas until no chunks remain. Add to mixture.
In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and oats.
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir just until combined. (Don't over-mix!)
Spoon the mixture evenly into the muffin tins, filling each cup all the way to the top.
Bake at 400 degrees F for about 5 minutes and then reduce heat to 350 degrees and cook for another 12-14 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Freezing Instructions: Allow the muffins to cool completely, then place them in a freezer ziplock bag and freeze for up to 3 months. To thaw the frozen muffins, allow them to come to room temperature or place one muffin in the microwave for 15-20 seconds.
