The Best Banana Muffins Ever

What you need: 

2 tablespoons vegan margarine
2 heaping tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 very large ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup dry oats
1 heaping teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch salt
walnuts or carob chips, optional

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Put the butter and sugar in a pan over low heat to melt. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
3. In a bowl, combine the butter-sugar mixture, bananas, flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Don't over mix, just stir a couple of times; you will have a not terribly attractive lumpy sludge, but don't worry about it.
4. Fill the muffin trays about two-thirds full of mixture. Bake for 25 minutes. Leave in pan for 5 minutes, then remove to wire rack for another 5 to 10 minutes, or until cool.

These are great. I blended the oats in the blender because my kids are finicky with texture. My picky son loved them :)

These were great!  I made some modifications to make them as healthy has humanly possible (well, and what I had available):

I used 2 1/2 frozen bananas, almond extract instead of vanilla, 2T Agave/Maple instead of sugar, 2T Applesauce instead of margarine, Whole wheat pastry flour, and I added walnuts.

I added all of the wet ingredients to the food processor (because of the frozen bananas), and mixed until smooth.  I then added the wet to the dry. 

SO much better than I expected! 

Oh yeah- and I baked them at 350 :).

Wonderful recipe.  Made them twice already.  I eat wheat-free and sugar free so I used spelt flour and stevia.  I also used both walnuts and unsweetened carob chips.  They were wonderful and still moist a couple of days later.

It's so great to be able to enjoy desserts.

Plan to try flax meal and/or applesauce and/or soy milk next time.

I love this site...so much fun.

I've made these twice now. Both times subbing maple syrup for sugar. The last time I also added blueberries. VERY tasty. Great texture. I end up baking them at a lower temp for a shorter time. I think my oven runs hot.  This is the best banana muffin recipe I've found yet. Enjoy!

I made the recipe with all whole wheat flour and brown sugar and it tasted great. I also left the bananas pretty chunky and it was tasty!! I got 9 muffins from the recipe.

WOW.
Just made these... added an extra 3tb or so of applesauce for extra moisture, raisins, shredded coconut, and doubled the cinnamon.
Soo easy to make and SO tasty!! I might have to go back for seconds....

These muffins are AWESOME! I used quick oats and whole whole wheat pastry flour... I did add the walnuts but not carob chips (yucky)... I sprinkled flax seeds on half the batch and mixed dried cranberries in the other half... they were wonderful <3 and I got to use my cute new valentines day muffin tin!

They're in the oven now, so we'll see how they turn out!

My issue with this recipe is that it leaves out a couple of steps and also it is way too dry without adding "milk." I added some blueberries and almond milk to mine, and halved the sugar and butter.
