Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 50 mins
Servings 12

Ingredients
  

  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups quick old-fashioned oats
  • 1.5 cups milk of your choice
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 lemon, zested OR 10-15 drops lemon essential oil

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray or use cupcake liners.
  • Peel and mash up your bananas in a bowl using a fork. Get them pretty goopy and mash out as many lumps as you can.
  • Add one egg, mixing it up well before adding the second one and mixing it up too.
  • Add the milk of your choice and mix well.
  • Stir in the baking powder, salt, and oats.
  • Add your blueberries and essential oil or zest.
  • Add batter to your muffin tin, filling each cup up to the top.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and let them cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes, longer if you can.
  • Once they're cool, run a knife around the edges, then remove them from the pan.

Notes

  • Use really ripe bananas, like "should I throw these away?" bananas.
  • I tried these with both cow milk and almond milk, and both worked just fine. Use the milk of your choice.
  • Frozen berries would probably work, but toss them in a little flour before adding them to the mix to help prevent them from sinking in your muffins.
  • The batter will also be pretty runny, and that's ok. The oats are going to soak it all up in the oven.
  • This recipe fills up my 12-cup muffin tin without any extra, but if you do have extra batter you could bake it in a cake pan, scrape out the baked goodness into a bowl, and top it with yogurt later.
  • Definitely let them cool in the pan for a little bit before you try to remove them. If you try to take them out before that, I found that they will really easily fall apart. These are soft until they really set up, and then after that, they have a great bouncy, oaty texture.
