Banana Oatmeal Muffins Recipe

The first time I made these Banana Oatmeal muffins, I was simply looking to bake a healthy sweet treat for a diabetic. 1 bite of this sweet, moist, flavor-filled goodness and I knew I had a winner. When they tasted even better the next day I knew I needed to write a recipe. To make them I used a 3:1 blend of oat and all purpose flour. There is no need to buy oat flour to make this banana oatmeal muffins recipe at home. Blend oatmeal in a blender or grinder until powdery. Since that first time this recipe has evolved to include oat milk as well. And still the raves continue. The complete recipe is below.

Use a spice grinder or a blender to grind the oatmeal into flour. Or, leave the oats intact for added texture in your muffins.

Next time I think  I’lI try some grated cassava instead. Cassava in all its gluey glory is my favorite flour substitute after all.
