"This is a fantastic muffin that bakes out very high and moist, If I have any apples around I add in some finely chopped into the flour mixture. If you prefer a sweeter muffin then add in more brown sugar."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.

Step 3

In a bowl, whisk flour, oats, bran, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Step 4

In another bowl, whisk egg, oil and brown sugar together.

Step 5

In a small bowl mix together the mashed banana, buttermilk and molasses; mix into the oil mixture until well combined (If you are adding in a chopped apple, peel the apple now, then mix it in with the flour mixture).

Step 6

Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add in the banana/oil mixture stirring with a wooden spoon or a spatula only to combine (do not overmix, don't worry about any lumps).

Step 7

Gently stir in raisins and nuts.

Step 8

Divide evenly between prepared muffin cups (almost to the top).

Step 9

Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until muffins tops spring back when lightly touched, and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the muffin.

No special items needed.



My hubby made these and he loved them. He said they are very easy to make and turn out super moist.

Extremely moist and very flavorful. I skipped the paper liners (don't keep them around) and sprayed muffin tins with non-stick spray, which worked fine. I subbed dried cranberries for the raisins. Will be making these again.
