I had bananas going brown on my counter and decided to make up some muffins. I wanted to make sure my kiddo liked them so I could plan to put some in her lunchbox in a few weeks. I added cinnamon, oatmeal, and raisins and the result was a delicious banana bread meets oatmeal cookie flavor.
Spiced and sweet these oatmeal raisin muffins go great with a cup of coffee.
- 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp brown sugar packed
- 1 tbsp butter melted
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 large egg beaten
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats
- 3/4 cup brown sugar packed
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup California Raisins
For the topping: In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup oats, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tbsp. brown sugar, and 1 tbsp. melted butter; set aside.
For muffins: Mash bananas in a medium bowl.
Stir in egg and milk. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and remaining amounts of oats, brown sugar and cinnamon.
Stir the banana mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined.
Gently stir in raisins, don't over mix, the batter will be lumpy.
Spoon into prepared muffin cups and sprinkle each with topping.
Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes.
