Yes that’s a mouthful and no I couldn’t help it. I was craving sugar and I knew that i had to be sensible about it. So I looked into Cyberspace and found this recipe which i tweaked a bit. I forgot to add the egg and realised I’d inadvertently made it eggless! I sold it to K telling him to think of it as a great way to eat Oats porridge! He loved it and i did too and this is my first attempt at baking with Oats. I’ve been reading and bookmarking so many recipes, but it took one hell of a sugar craving and a really rainy beautiful afternoon for me to make these. These muffins have a moist crumb and do not reek of healthy ingredients if you know what i mean. They do have a nutty taste from the peanut butter tho. I’m trying a new workout routine and am sore all over, so dont have the will to type out a story (there isnt one actually). So here you go with the recipe!
Eggless Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Muffins (Makes 6 regular muffins)
1/2 cup flour (i used whole wheat, but you could sub with Maida / All purpose flour)
3/4 cup oats (i used quick cooking)
a pinch of baking soda
1/3 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
1 T vegetable oil
4 tablespoons brown sugar + 2 tablespoons for topping
i mashed banana (about 2/3 of a cup)
3-4 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons unsweetened natural yogurt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
Preheat Oven to 375 F, line a muffin pan with paper liners
In a blender blend thoroughly the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda and the salt. Remove into a bowl.
Reserve 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar. In the same blender jar, add the remaining ingredients and whisk till well blended and looks like a smoothie.
Make a well in the middle of the flours and add the wet ingredients. With a light hand and a wooden spoon, mix till just incorporated. Do not overmix. The batter should be like a drop cookie batter, moist but not runny.
Drop with spoons into the paper muffin liners filling till 2/3 full. Sprinkle the reserved brown sugar on top. Bake for 22-25 min or till a skewer comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. These are beat eaten warm. These muffins can be refrigerated for a week. lightly warm before serving.
