Quaker Banana Apple Oat Muffins
Ingredients (Serves 12)
To make your own flour from oats, place 3/4 cups quick or old-fashioned oats, uncooked, in blender or food processor. Cover and blend 60 seconds. Makes 1/2 cup flour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F) and line muffin tin with paper liners.
In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients.
In a separate bowl, beat eggs. Mix in applesauce, mashed bananas, honey, yogurt, and vanilla until well blended.
Stir wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just enough to moisten the dry ingredients.
Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tins and bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Cool about 15 minutes.
These delicious and healthy muffins can be prepared ahead of time and frozen. Then for a quick breakfast or snack, just reheat them in the microwave for a few seconds.
Substitutions and Additions
Substitute 2 cups of diced Granny Smith apples for the bananas. First mix the diced apples with 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg. Then mix them into the dry ingredients before adding the wet ingredients.
Or use pumpkin puree with some allspice to turn this into a crunchy, healthy pumpkin muffin recipe.
1 1/3 cups sugar plus 1/3 cup water can be substituted for the honey.
Buttermilk can be substituted for the yogurt. Don't have buttermilk? Just add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to milk and let stand 5-10 minutes.

There are many types of whole wheat flours that are sweeter and lighter than traditional whole wheat. For example, hard white wheat flour creates similar results as all white but is much better for you. There are other choices, too, like kamut flour, spelt flour, oat flour, and teff flour. These are all healthy choices. So explore...discover...and ENJOY!
