Taste-test Tuesday – Banana Oatmeal Muffins, er cups. Bars. Something.

Oatmeal is a nursing mother’s BFF.  ‘Tis true.  But, I’ve been doing crockpot oatmeal for WEEKS and, honestly, I’m a little sick of it.  I spent some time this weekend researching some breakfast recipes involving oatmeal and found one for a banana oatmeal loaf … which I’ve not lost the link to.  Awesome.  Anyway, it had a lot of sugar.  And it was in loaf form, which kinda weirds me out.  So, I decided to substitute some Agave Nectar for the sugar and try it in muffin form.  It doesn’t actually RISE like muffins, so I’m not sure whether these are bars or what, but they’re pretty damn good & easy.


3cups of oats (not steel cut, not quick cook, not Hall &, just regular ol’ oats)

1/2 cup Agave Nectar

1 egg

2 bananas (smooshed)


Preheat oven to 325deg.  Smoosh bananas in a bowl.  Add egg and mix thoroughly.  Add Agave Nectar.  Keep mixin’.  Add oats.  Mix some more.  Spoon into a muffin pan and bake for 25min.  Ta-da!

That’s really it.  The consistency is moist but not chewy and they’re certainly bananalicious.  This recipe made exactly a dozen so I had two to test out Sunday night and 2 for breakfast each day this week.  Woot woot!
