Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Muffins

I saw these muffins on Stephanie Cooks and knew immediately that I wanted to try them. I am a huge fan of muffins and I already had all the ingredients on hand, so I couldn't wait to bake up a batch.

Well to say these were a hit would be an understatement. The husband and I gobbled them up in 2 days, scarfing 2 at a time. He was upset that I ate the last two muffins for breakfast without saving him any. In my defense, I eat in the car while driving on the freeway and I need a portable breakfast. The husband wakes up long after I have already left for work, has time to eat before leaving home, and only has a 4 mile commute straight down the street. He can deal. :)

These are not very sweet, but they are really flavorful and incredibly moist. I might add some brown sugar next time to up the sweetness factor (I have a huge sweet tooth), but then they won't be very health-friendly.
