Sugar Free Banana Oatmeal Muffins


We love to enjoy these mini muffins (recipe can be used for minis or for regular size muffins) for a quick, healthy snack while we are on the go. One of my kids' favorite snacks! The fact that there is no sugar gives me piece of mind, I do add a few chocolate chips for a fun treat at times, however!




Yields 12 muffins, or 24-26 Mini Muffins


Ingredients

· 2 Ripe Bananas

· 1 cup milk

· 1/4 cup oil

· 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract

· 2 large eggs (lightly beaten)

· 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

· 1 teaspoon baking powder

· 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

· 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

· 1/4 teaspoon salt

· 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

· 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (Optional)

· 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips (Optional)


*If you opt to add the optional ingredients, this is no longer a sugar-free recipe, but the sugar is still kept to a minimal amount





Directions

1. Mash Bananas in a large bowl and add milk, oil, beaten eggs, vanilla, oil and maple syrup (if including);

2. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda in a separate bowl;

3. Add the cinnamon and the oats to the flour mixture;

4. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the large bowl where the mashed bananas, milk, oil, vanilla, and eggs are waiting.

5. Stir in the chocolate chips (if including);

6. Spoon into a lined muffin pan. Parchment muffin liners make the best stick-free solution to easily remove from the pan, and also to peel from cooked muffins.












7. Bake at 350 F for 18-22 minutes. The muffins are done when a toothpick pulls away dry crumbs only when inserted and removed from the center of a muffin.

8. Cool and enjoy!
