Lowfat Banana Nut Oat Muffins

I had some bananas that were pretty brown and soft when I got home from Cincinnati, so I decided to make some muffins. I wanted them to be low cal/fat and healthy, so I made up a recipe that was easy and used things I had on hand. These came out great!

Lowfat Banana Nut Oat Muffins
Makes 12

1/2 c. AP flour
1/2 c. Whole Wheat flour
1/2 c. light brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 c. nuts (pecan, walnuts, almonds)
3/4 c. oats
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg
1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. plain yogurt
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 c. (about 2) very ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients, stir.
In a kitchen aid mixer, combine vanilla, egg, milk, yogurt, oil and bananas. Mix well.
Slowly beat in the dry ingredients, do not overmix!
Spoon into greased muffin tins with or without wrappers.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.

Love your blogs. Do you have a recipe for lasagna and do you make it with tofu. I have a friend that has a milk allergy so I'm trying to find a recipe for her. You can email me at jennifers0113@yahoo.com
