Banana Oat Muffins!

 

I found a great recipe on Veg Web for Whole Wheat Banana muffins so I decided to change it up to my liking. The outcome was fantastic! Totally yummy! Moist and flavourful muffins! I used Spelt flour instead of the whole wheat and didn’t add the nutmeg because I’m not a big fan of nutmeg. I added double the cinnamon to the recipe instead which suited my family of cinnamon obsessed individuals just fine. If your making these muffins to send with the kids to school then just exclude the walnuts and almond extract in the recipe. Here is the recipe …

Prep Time: 30 – 45 minutes

Spelt,  Banana & Oat Muffins

  • 1 1/3 cup Spelt flour
  • 2 1/2 small ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup Turbinado sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract (optional )
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • Vegan Chocolate Chips (optional)

 

Preheat the oven to 350. Mash bananas in a small bowl.  Mix in olive oil, vanilla and almond extract if using it and water. In another bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Add the banana mixture to the dry ingredients, and stir well to in corporate everything. Add in the walnuts if you’re using them and the oats. I also added a bit of vegan chocolate chip as well to make my kids happy.  Spoon mixture into muffin tins and bake for 20-30 minutes or until lightly browned.

Serves 8-10
