Sugar free, fat free and yet these banana oatmeal muffins are incredible delicious and packed with flavor. These muffins are also very easy to prepare with a handful of healthy and natural ingredients.
Sugar is not so good for our health and I’m looking for sugar free recipes. These banana oatmeal muffins are a hit!
These super delicious muffins are perfect for breakfast, dessert or for an afternoon snack.
To prepare these healthy muffins, you should start by grounding the oats. Next, mash the bananas and combine all the ingredients.
Then spoon the batter into a slightly greased muffin tin and bake. I didn’t use paper muffin cups because they stick to muffins. It’s much better to spoon the batter directly into the slightly greased muffin tin.
Oh, I forgot! It’s very important to use overripe bananas! Bananas with brown spots are the best for this recipe. I also added raisins, for sweetness. Instead of raisins you may use other dried fruits (like dates or dried apricots) or 2 tablespoons of honey.
This is a quick and easy recipe, perfect for breakfast. A couple of banana oatmeal muffins and a cup of coffee (freshly squeezed orange juice for kids), this is a great way to start the day!
The recipe makes 12 muffins.
