Healthy Yoghurt Banana Oat Muffins

Just a quick recipe post I found online. I'm trying to fix up my ridiculous eating habits by reducing the levels of rubbish I stuff in my mouth throughout the day...while browsing the interneweb I came across this badboy recipe... If you want any more healthy recipes let me know and I'll find them...Looks so yummy!! 


  • 1 ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 1 ½ cup oat flour (refer to #3)
  • 1/2 cup plain, low fat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup low fat milk or soy milk
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sunflower oil
  • 2 large, really ripe bananas mashed
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 lightly beaten egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup raisins, walnuts or both
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


Note:  In order to make the "flour", you need to grind up your oats... clever right?!! 

  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. Mix rolled oats, yogurt and milk together in a bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  3. It will require about 2 cups of rolled oats to make the 1 1/2 cups or oat flour you need. Just pulse the 2 cups rolled oats in the food processor until they turn to a powdery consistency (like dry grits).
  4. Now, combine oat flour, salt, sugar, spices, baking powder and baking soda in a separate bowl.
  5. Add mashed banana, egg and oil to the rolled oat mixture and mix well.
  6. Now add dry oat flour mixture to rolled oat mixture and mix together well. Add in nuts and/or raisins if desired and incorporate evenly. Chocolate chips are great too!
  7. Fill greased or lined muffin cups 2/3 of the way. Bake for approximately 16-20 minutes
