Quick Oat Bran and Banana Muffins

Quick Oat Bran and Banana Muffins created by GaylaJ

A delicious way to add healthy oat bran to your diet. I like the chopped bananas in these, rather than the usual mashed, as I like running across the small bits of banana. This is a recipe from Bon Appetit that I have changed somewhat to suit my taste.

    OK, First of all, you have to know that I am no baker! Probably because everything usually fails on me, which makes me aviod the kitchen at all costs. I have been desperately searching for a high protein, gluten free, lactose free, soy free food that I could enjoy as a snack and that would stay with me throughout the day. I managed to find a great protein bar but discovered it was full of whey (milk) and Soy. So there goes that idea! Then I figured...well, I better try to make something myself that I can guarantee is healthy for me! By some miracle, I found this recipe and was able to tweek it to fit my needs!! I changed the flour to a gluten free mix, added flax seed, gluten free oatbran, I cut the sugar in half and added Stevia, added walnuts and a few lactose free chocolate chips and used lactose free milk and cashew milk! Guess what? IT WORKED!!! I really am at a loss! The whole time I was making them I kept thinking, I hope I'm not wasting all these ingredients and the muffins will end up in the compost, but they are absolutely delicious!!! I am still working out the nutritional value but I would say they probably have about 6-7 grams of protein. My recipe also made 18 average size muffins...maybe because of the added flaxseed? Have to say MANY THANKS for this great recipe that just may help me through the day!!!

    I've been searching for a 'healthy' oatbran muffin for ages. I've experimented with different recipes but this one is definitely the best. My oven is very hot so I lowered it a little bit and they were still baked at just 15mins. I added extra cinnamon just because I love it & because I was looking for a healthy version I reduced the sugar by half as I felt the bananas & vanilla would sweeten it enough, and they did. I didn't have vegetable oil but replaced it with coconut oil. It's a great recipe and highly recommended.
