Terrific Banana-Oat Muffins!

This is an adaptation from the Cheerios website, you can also substitute the 2 cups of oatmeal for 2 cups of Cheerios for a whole grain crunch!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400°. Spray 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray, or grease bottoms only of muffin cups.
  2. (Crush cereal if you used cereal instead of oats) Stir together oats/cereal, flour, brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients just until moistened. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  3. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown.

I used 2 cups of oats which made the muffins too heavy. They were tasty but like doorstops. I also added about 3 tablespoons of splenda to the brown sugar, 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1/3 cup of egg beaters instead of the egg white and 1/4 cup of flax seeds. Maybe I'll try this again using cheerios (not crushed) to see if they'll be lighter.

I used generic "cheerios" and didn't bother crushing them. Gave muffins a nice texture. I will add nutmeg or cinnamon (or both) next time, because I thought they need a little spice. This is a keeper though, because they are low in sugar (I may try Splenda next time, too). Thanks for posting!

A nice, healthy recipe. I used 1 cup oats, applesauce for the oil & added 1/4 cup Splenda. Baking time was around 15 min. Turned out very moist & flavorful. Next time I might add some cinn & vanilla. Thanks very much.
