Eggless Banana Oats muffins are delicious and yet healthy combination of bananas and oats. These muffin are so soft and melt in mouth that you won’t be able to stop at just one. The goodness of these muffins does not end at bananas and oats as it also contains whole wheat flour (or aata).
I was looking for a nice yummy recipe of eggless banana oats muffins from a long time. I tried some recipes available on Internet/shared by friends, did slight variations and after a few trials I got this perfect spot on recipe. This recipe does not contain maida and butter. Just two tablespoons of cooking oil for the entire batch of six muffins!! Use any oil like sunflower oil or olive oil which is odourless and you can enjoy muffins without being guilty of stashing loads of calories. It is really a delicious oats recipe which will make one eat oats without even realising it.
As these muffins are quite fulfilling, they can be given as snacks or in dessert in kids’ tiffin. Also, you can grab one of these muffins along with your morning cup of coffee or tea when you are getting late and don’t have time for a proper breakfast.
These muffins get all their softness and moisture from banana and curd. For the sweetness, I have used some brown sugar which is again a healthier alternative to refined sugar we generally consume at home. The muffin get its natural sweetness from the ripe bananas. I would advice, if you are trying this recipe, then please use only ripe bananas as I have added a nominal amount of sugar and these muffins get most of their sweetness from bananas.
You can garnish these muffins with any fruit or nuts of your choice. Some of the suggested options which you can use are strawberries, blueberries, dried cranberries, almonds, raisins or chocolate chips etc.I have used here dried cranberries and chocolate chips.
Look at the beautiful top and the soft fluffy insides of these muffins. Trust me, they are more delicious than they look. It is a must try banana recipe and I am sure you would love it!!

If the oven has preheated by now, place the cupcake tin inside the oven and bake muffins at 180 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, do the tooth pick test.
Prick the centre of any muffin by a toothpick and check. If the toothpick comes out clean the muffins are ready. If there is some liquid at the tip, bake for another 2 minutes.
