Just in case you’re wondering, i’ve nothing against muffins I don’t have this blog address because i’m biased towards cupcakes! It’s just a really cute phrase i saw on a shirt once. Hahahaha. Anyway..
When i woke up this morning, i did my usual. Catching up on foodblogs, recipes and forums. I felt soooooooo hungry when i saw Ovenhaven‘s entry on blueberry muffins.
I felt like i just had to make them! Just that.. I don’t have blueberries. But i thought to myself, bananas sound good! Bananas are awesome along with cinammon and always comes with nuts or oats. So i thought of tweaking the recipe!
Do visit the link above for the original recipe. Continue for my version which i name : Banana Oat Crunch Muffins!
For the Muffin:
3/4 cup plain flour
3/4 cup wholemeal flour
1/4 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup chopped bananas
Mix the flours, rolled oats, white sugar, salt, and baking powder together. Basically just mix all the dry ingredients together.
I used the paddle attachment for this.
Whisk the rest of the ingredients in a measuring cup. Mix on low and slowly add the wet to the dry!
Now fold the bananas in. I like to fold it in because i personally love the chunks of bananas in my muffins! Don’t like them mashed.
For the topping:
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp plain flour
2 tbsp wholemeal flour
3 tbsp butter, cubed
1 tsp ground cinammon
3 tbsp rolled oats
Cream the butter with the brown sugar. Then add the rest of the ingredients. I added more wholemeal flour/oats until it was more seperated and easier to sprinkle.
So i filled the cups 3/4 way and sprinkled the topping over.
Bake it at 200C for 25 to 30 mins.
The top should be crunchy, and moist on the insides It made an awesome breakfast!
This really brightened up my morning. I hope it’ll do the same to you
