Banana and Oatmeal Muffins

I’m trying to do some baking with DD1 every week. This week I thought we’d try these muffins from carrotsandcelery

They were easy to make & everyone loved them! <yay!>

I recently tried freezing them & defrosting them for breakfast.  I put them in a tupperwear box for 11hrs & they were perfect for breakfast on the run!


  • 200g plain flour
  • 85g oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 3 large, well ripened bananas
  • 85g sugar
  • 1 egg beaten with a fork
  • 85ml milk
  • 85ml vegetable oil or melted butter
  • 1tsp vanilla essence
  • 85g choc chips or chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 – 400F or 190 – 200 C or Gas Mark 5-6.
  2. Prepare muffin tin ( – I use 18 medium cases – not the huge muffin cases or the small fairy cake cases, or the tiny truffle ones)
  3. Sift the flour, baking powder and bicarb into a large bowl. Add the salt and oats.
  4. In a separate bowl mash the bananas to a puree, add egg, milk, oil/butter, sugar and vanilla essence. Mix.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and mix until just combined – you should have a lump batter but no floury bits.
  6. Add choc chips or walnuts if using.
  7. Spoon into prepared tin – cases should be about 3/4 full.
  8. Bake for about 20 – 25 mins, until reasonably firm when pressed and golden brown.
  9. Cool.
