Monday Morning Muffins

So I woke up on this freezing cold Monday morning in the mood to bake.  I find this very strange because I had absolutely no motivation all weekend long.  I did get my chores done, but not much of anything else.  Never in a million years would I have thought that I would wake up on a Monday morning all chipper and ready to bake.Muffins

 

I came across a recipe for oatmeal muffins while I was surfing pinterest.  I actually had all of the ingredients that the recipe called for.  Hattie was busy trashing playing in the living room so I thought why not.  Personally, I am very tired of all the heavy rich food from the holidays.  So I thought these muffins sounded light and healthy.

I did make some adjustments to the recipe so here is my recipe:

Banana Berry Oatmeal Muffins

  • 3 mashed bananas (the more ripe the better!)
  • 1 cup vanilla Almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp Baking powder
  • 3 cups Old Fashion oats
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 handfuls dried cranberries ( blueberries or chocolate chips could be used)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Mix everything together in a large bowl, and let sit while you prepare the muffin cups.

Spray a muffin pan and/or liners with with non-stick spray.

Divide batter into 15 muffin cups. They should be just about filled.

Bake 20-25 minutes, you’ll see the edges just starting to brown and they will be firm to the touch.

The muffins may stick when hot but are removed easily when cooled for a bit.

This is the perfect recipe for over ripe bananas.  My bananas were almost black.  I have a habit of throwing them in the freezer when they get over ripe.  I always say I will make a smoothie or banana bread with them.  I don’t even like banana bread.  My Grandma was famous for her banana bread.  So I think this is where I learned the freeze over ripe bananas trick from.

The Husband and Hattie both loved the muffins.  I personally thought they were good, but had a strange texture.  I am not sure if I have ever had an “oatmeal” muffin before.  I love an oatmeal raisin cookie, but those are slightly different than a muffin. So Maybe I need to figure out how to make oatmeal raisin cookie muffins!
