These banana oat muffins will use up all your ripe bananas and fill and satisfy all the tummies in your house.  Granola is the perfect way to sneak in oats! If you like to snack on muffins don’t miss this amazing round up delicious muffin recipes.  My family also loves these banana chocolate chip muffins.

Banana Oat Muffins

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 extra-large eggs
3/4 cup whole milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 bananas)
1 cup medium-diced ripe bananas (1 banana)
1 cup diced pecans
1 1/2 cups granola

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Line 18 large muffin cups with paper liners. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a bowl.  Add melted butter and blend. Combine eggs, milk, vanilla, and mashed bananas, and add them to the flour-and-butter mixture. Scrape the bowl and blend well. Don’t overmix.

Fold the diced bananas, pecans and granola into the batter. Spoon the batter into paper liners, filling each 1 to the top. Top each muffin granola, if desired. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the tops are brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool slightly, remove from the pan, and serve.

    looks delicious! I love making banana muffins ... although last time the bananas were a little too brown and it came out slightly bitter
