Banana Oat Muffins

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


1 dozen

Chopped pecans add pleasant crunch to these hearty banana oatmeal muffins with rich flavor. These muffins are low in cholesterol, but you’d never know it. My husband and I love them. —Marjorie Mott, Galatia, Illinois


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In a small bowl, beat the egg whites, bananas, brown sugar, milk and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Stir in pecans.
  2. Coat muffin cups with cooking spray; fill two-thirds full with batter. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

    These weren't great. Pretty flat.

    I made them with 1/4 c of real maple syrup and maybe a Tbsp or 2 of sugar. I also incorporated about 1-2 Tbsp of chia seeds into the batter, instead of nuts and sprinkled a few on top. I would make them again!

    Very good! I used 1 whole egg instead of 2 egg whites and they turned out great.

    Good muffins...turned out very well, although the bananas were less than wonderful and not as great-tasting. Will try again with better bananas!

    This recipe came out ok. I used cinnamon applesauce instead of oil and left out the nuts. I added some dried cranberries, which was a nice touch of sweetness because the recipe doesn't contain much sugar. These are good for a quick breakfast on the run.

    Excellent recipe! I changed it up a little by using unsweetened applesauce & adding a touch of blue agave sweetener. I also added a little vanilla extract and left out the pecans. I will defininately make this "healthier" version again. :)
