Multi-Grain Banana Muffins (Low Fat, Too!)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by anaisfern

I adapted a banana muffin recipe to include healthier grains, less oil, less sugar and more spice. They don't taste low-fat or healthy--just like good, homemade banana muffins.

Very good! I didn't use the nutmeg & used applesauce for the oil. I also added 1/4 cup mini choc chips. The taste was a little different from all the oats but it was great with the choc chips. Very moist, too. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the oats and buttermilk in a small bowl; let these sit while you prepare the other ingredients.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients (including the cinnamon and nutmeg) together in a medium mixing bowl.
  4. Mash the banana until it's nearly smooth--measure once the fruit is mashed, of course.
  5. Add the egg, oil, sugar, and vanilla.
  6. After stirring those together, add in the oat-buttermilk mixture.
  7. Add the wet ingredients into the dry, stirring just until the dry ingredients are absorbed and no large lumps remain.
  8. Refrain from over-mixing.
  9. Grease twelve muffin cups.
  10. Spoon the batter in, filling the cups evenly to about 2/3 or 3/4 full.
  11. Bake 25-30 minutes, until the top is slightly springy when gently pushed with a finger.
