This was one of those recipes that came about because I had bananas that needed using. You know those right? :) I didn’t think I’d end up posting the recipe, but we ate these in record time especially since the hubby doesn’t like bananas baked into anything so I decided they were worth sharing.
I’m afraid I don’t have much to say about these so I’ll let the rest of the pictures do the talking. They’re nutritious while still being super yummy. They’re barely sweet with just 4 tbsp of maple syrup and full of whole grains and fruit so they’re great for breakfast or a healthy snack. I hope you enjoy them!
Spelt and Oat Banana Muffins
makes 12 muffins
- 1 1/2 C whole spelt flour
- 3/4 C old fashioned rolled oats, plus more for sprinkling on top
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 C maple syrup
- 1/2 C butter, melted
- 2 egg
- 2 C mashed banana
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 C walnuts or chocolate chips(optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a muffin tin with paper liners and set aside.
In a bowl, stir together the spelt flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, mix the maple syrup, melted butter, eggs, banana and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir together just until combined. Fold in your choice of addins and divide amongst the 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle with a pinch of oats if desired and place in the oven.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely before storing.
Have a great weekend!
