Super Simple Banana Muffins
Updated: Mar 6
This recipe is so simple, your school ager could probably make it themselves (perhaps with a little supervision).
It is what they call a 'dump' recipe...'DUMP' all the ingredients into one bowl, stir it up, put it into a pan, and bake it! No one will ever know how easy it was.
I love making muffins, especially for school lunches. It gives me peace of mind that my kids are getting some good fuel to help them do their best!
Makes 12 muffins

4 medium sized ripe bananas (fresh or frozen)
1/3 cup canola oil
2 large eggs
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup oats
2 tbsp ground flax seed (optional)
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 375°.
In a mixing bowl, mash bananas, then whisk in oil, eggs, sugar, vanilla, oats, and flax. (*if using frozen bananas, make sure they are completely thawed, and do not dump out the liquid)
Stir in flour, baking soda and salt.
Mix until just combined.
Pour into prepared muffin pan (use paper muffin liners).
Cook for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
