Banana bread and muffins are moist by nature, but these were incredible! The addition of oats makes this a very hearty muffin. I made a few changes due only to personal preferences. I used whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose, brown sugar instead of granulated, and substituted half the amount of butter with applesauce. When mashing my bananas, I leave a few small chunks, just because that's the way I like it. My compliments to the chef!

Amazing! So easy to make- actually the first time I've ever made muffins, and within 3 batches I was able to make substitutions (applesauce for butter, whole-wheat flour for white, honey for sugar) and still have amazing muffins! I would definitely recommend this to friends, and actually already have!!!

Mmm. So moist. I did not have any nuts so I did not add them, but, these were still amazing. Very hearty , they fill you up.

These are great! I used whole wheat flour and egg beaters in the recipe, omitted the nuts and added a half cup of raisins. I also added in 2 tsp. of cinnamon. Going to make some more right now!

Absolutely fantastic muffins! I reduced the sugar slightly and added a tablespoon of molasses. Will be making every time I have some soft bananas.

This is one of the best muffins I've ever tasted! I used King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour and substituted Splenda for sugar and threw in some raisins. I also added a little cinnamon and nutmeg. The muffins have tons of flavor and are very moist. My diet is now in peril.

My children love these muffins. I make them in a mini muffin tins and bake for about 12 - 14 minutes. I have also used whole wheat flour and they are very good also. Thanks for the recipe.

Hands down, the best banana muffin recipe ever. I've made banana nut or just straight up banana muffins, but never banana oat. I've made them three times in the past month. The past two times, I added chocolate chips. Super hearty, delicious and super easy to whip up. It's an easy recipe to follow and I quite enjoy it!! Not to mention my husband and my family too :) I used 5 large bananas yesterday when I made them and it yielded 21 muffins. I wonder how many calories one muffin would be? Like 75?

I took a stab at making these gluten free and they turned out great! I subbed the flour for Almond flour, sugar for honey, and butter for coconut oil and added some pecans and dark chocolate chip. I added 6 minutes to the baking time and they turned out fantastic. My co-workers are really enjoying them today. Thank you!

This tasted great for breakfast with a great banana taste and texture of the oats. The lil's loved these too; I froze some for later hoping that nothing changes. Thank you!
