For those with a 'less' sweet-tooth - A recipe for banana oatmeal muffins

Banana Oatmeal Muffins
My in-laws are here with us, it has been wonderful seeing them with their grandson and touring places around. They are loving the united states, the land of the free! Both my parents-in law are in their early stage of diabetes and have cultivated and follow a healthy diet. However, there is still a tiny craving for sweets.

I thought of a sweet bread and tried the Banana walnut bread and everyone loved it! My next try was to make something more healthier and tastier and then I tried the Banana Oatmeal muffin, which was an absolute hit!

I relished the taste of these yum muffins and I am sure you'd liked to try this because it's healthy, not too many calories and easy, so easy to make! My husband who is never an oats person found them delectable :)

Here's how you make these moist nutritious muffins.

1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup Sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole Wheat flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, bananas and honey; mix well. Combine dry ingredients in another bowl; stir into creamed mixture just until moistened. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes or until the poked toothpick comes out clean. Cool in tray 10 - 15 minutes before  serving. The above quantity of ingredients would make 18  golden-brown muffins. Here's how it looked. The above picture is the same muffin with the instagram effect ;-)
