I’m a huge muffin person, and we love to keep them around all the time, any flavor really we don’t care, but these Apple Banana Oat Muffins are one of our favorites.

They are packed with tons of different flavors that work so well together, and the texture is amazing as well, soft and moist with a hint of oats.

Perfect for your favorite breakfast or even a great dessert! You really just cannot go wrong when making these Apple Banana Oat Muffins. 

They are also great for kids, our daughter gobbles them up whenever we have them around. They are one of her favorite snacks to have during the day.

More on the “healthier” side, these are great for back-to-school, bake sales, brunches, and more. They are just an overall great muffin that comes together easily.

    Oatmeal is a perfect powder. I have been using it for over 2 years. I love having it for my breakfast. I will try this recipe

    Made this tonight and will definitely make again sometime. I tweaked the recipe a bit – did a mix of wholewheat and white flour, and subbed out 1/2 cup of flour for 1/2 cup of Quest banana cream protein powder. Trying to reduce my sugar intake so I halved the sugar, and did 3/4 cup mashed banana and 1/4 cup applesauce. Also left peel on the apples, and I must have made these smaller than you did because 15 minutes @350 was perfect. Super moist and on the healthier side, thanks for the recipe 😀 , wish I could give more than 5 stars

  8. Made these for my husbands breakfast. They are So good. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
