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

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 25 mins

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.

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.

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!
