My daughter in law gave me this recipe. She suggests having one of these for breakfast with a hard boiled egg. I agree. These are very delicious and a healthy alternative to the sugary, almost cupcake like muffins, that are served a lot.
3 mashed bananas
1 cup low fat milk (can use almond milk if there is a good sale)
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 cup oats - quick or old fashioned
1 teaspoon vanilla
Fresh or frozen blueberries
Mix together, except the blueberries. For the muffin cups, I line muffin tins with paper liners but you can grease the muffin cups if you don't have the paper liners. Fill the muffin cups 2/3 full. Then top the batter with some blueberries - I topped each muffin with 5 large blueberries.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. These muffins are very dense as they don't have added flour nor oil, shortening or butter. The bananas sweeten them just right, at least for me, and I like a dense a muffin for breakfast. If you find that you need these to be a little sweeter, you could sprinkle a very small smidgen of some sugar (raw or granulated) on top or a little honey after baking. Also, you can add a little cinnamon to the batter.
I am finding that as I change our diet to one with less sugar, I need some time for my "taste buds" to adjust. I am giving this time. Our diets are so laden with sugar that I think we forget what real food, such as the taste of oats, is really like. But in saying that, I still plan to bake good ole fashioned cookies. Instead of having 3 dozen on hand from a recipe, I will hold back 6 and give the rest to our friends and neighbors as a gift of hospitality.
I will still have a treat that may have a lot of fat and sugar in it, but it will be 1 treat and I won't sit down and eat several.
