Banana and Oat Muffins

A Note:

This is not my recipe but my husband’s. It is also a vegan banana and oat muffin recipe.

A tip for this recipe:

If you are unsure if you’re muffins are completely baked you can do the following:

  • Look for a knife with a sharp point and a smooth edge.
  • Stick the knife into one of the muffins.
  • Pull the knife out. If the knife comes out completely clean your muffins are ready to be taken out of the oven.
  • If some dough sticks to the knife you should bake your muffins a little longer.

Since we don’t eat butter or margarine anymore we ate these muffins with only peanut butter and honey. You can also eat them with a little bit of coconut oil instead of using butter/margarine.

Something Interesting:

We sometimes eat this muffins with a French jam called St. Dalfour. It contains no sugar and no preservatives. I’m not sure about internationally but in South-Africa we buy this jam at Pick ‘n Pay. It’s a very delicious jam that comes in different flavors. Unfortunately it is very very expensive so we only buy it from time to time.
