From Scratch Snacks: Honey Oat Banana Muffins

I love to greet my children with a delicious and healthy after school snack.  The perfect ingredients include something that is also easy and economical. That's where these healthy banana muffins step in, they are moist and flavorful and easy on the budget!  A win win for me. 

Honey Oat Banana Muffins
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup honey
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 egg

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine flour, oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
3. In a standing mixer combine the 3 bananas, honey, oil, vanilla and egg. Beat until combined and bananas are mashed.
4. Gently mix in the dry ingredients in 3 stages until just combined. Do not over-mix.
5. Grease or line muffin cups and fill 3/4 full with the mixture.
6. Bake 20 for regular muffin cups or until a toothpick comes out clean.
7. Cool and enjoy.
I know, I know!  Another banana muffin? Well yes indeed - and this one includes heart healthy oats and honey.  Plus bananas are pretty perfect from  nutritional perspective.  Bake up a batch this weekend!
