Banana Oatmeal Muffins (with Walnuts)

I made a double batch of these today and they’re quite good!  This is the recipe for a single batch (makes a dozen muffins).  They’re not very sweet which is nice but if you do like it a bit more sweet, add a little more brown Splenda to the mix or just put some kind of icing on it.  I used Betty Crocker French Vanilla icing on a few of them and it’s quite yummy :-)


  • 1 c all purpose flour
  • 1 c whole wheat flour
  • 1 c rolled oats (preferably not quick oats, but hey, if that’s all you have, give it a whirl)
  • 1 rounded tsp baking powder
  • 1 rounded tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c brown Splenda
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 mashed large bananas
  • 1/3 c. melted butter or vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • About a half cup of walnuts (more or less as you wish)


Preheat oven to 375 F and grease a muffin pan (you’ll need 12 wells).  Mix first 8 ingredients (the dry stuff) in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl, mix the remaining ingredients except walnuts (so the wet ingredients).  Incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry ones and mix, but just until it’s mixed (don’t over mix).  Mix in walnuts and divide it into the muffin pan. Bake for about 13 minutes at 375.  Check with a toothpick and adjust baking time if necessary.
