Banana Oat Muffins

Due to my constant buying-but-never-getting-around-to-eat-bananas, I find I am always using bananas in my baking! Not that I’m complaining though!

It’s actually funny, I used to hate bananas! The taste, the texture…wasn’t for me. Didn’t mind it in baking but you wouldn’t catch me eating a banana. That’s changed now, except now I just forget to eat them. Oops.

These banana oat muffins are perfect for breakfast or an on-the-go snack! Dress them up a little too; add some chocolate chips, pecans or maybe a maple glaze drizzled on top. Yum!
