2mashed bananas10 oz
1/4cupnut butterpeanut or almond, 2 oz
1.25cupsinstant oatsor oat flour, 5 oz
1/4cupchopped walnuts2 oz
Preheat the oven to 375° F. Line muffin tins with muffin liners or grease well.
Mash the banana, eggs, and nut butter together until smooth.
Grate the carrot and apple and stir it into the mixture along with the oats, nuts, and spices.
Bake for 30 -35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Allow the muffins to cool for 30 minutes before eating. Otherwise they will be gooey inside.
Store in an airtight container or freeze. Reheat in a toaster oven or microwave.
I use instant oats here because they are more absorbent than rolled oats and produce a better texture in baked goods. You can make your own by pulsing rolled oats in a food processor until they are like a coarse flour.
