How to Make Oatmeal Banana Muffins

Preheat oven to 425F and line your muffin pan with 12 liners.

Making the Streusel Topping

In a small bowl mix the melted butter, brown sugar, rolled oats, and flour together. Set aside. The streusel will become more crumbly while it sits.

Making the Muffin Batter

In a large bowl mash the bananas until there are no large pieces left. Mix in the sugar. Followed by the egg and oil. Mix well to combine.

In a medium sized bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

wet and dry ingredients for the banana muffins

Dump the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. You want to fold in the dry ingredients and be careful not to over mix (this will result in dry muffins). Once there are no more flour streaks stop mixing. Fold in the rolled oats.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

STORING THE MUFFINS

These muffins are best eaten on the day you bake them. After that the topping becomes moist and no longer crunchy. You can store these muffins at room temperature for up to three days.

DO I NEED TO BRING MY EGG TO ROOM TEMPERATURE?

Yes you do. Room temperature eggs break down easier in the batter. This means less mixing, which gives you a fluffy moist muffin. If you forget to take your egg out of the fridge (I always do) just run your egg under warm water for a few minutes.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then level off the access by scraping with a knife. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour causes the flour to compress and you will get more flour than the recipe calls for.

Can I Use Quick Oats?

No, you want to be sure to use rolled oats, also called old fashioned oats. These give the best texture.

    Turned out amazing! Sweet and rich and not dry at all. Was very pleased on how accurate the baking time was. They were perfect right at 15 minutes. Can’t wait to have some for breakfast with a drizzle of honey and a dash of cinnamon <3

    Love this recipe and it’s a hit with family and friends! I’m a huge fan of pecans so I add a bit to the streusel. They come out great everytime!
