INGREDIENTS USED IN BREAKFAST BANANA MUFFINS
Since this is a healthier version, I have used 50% whole wheat flour and 50% all purpose flour. Flour gives the main structure to any baked good. You can try making this recipe completely with either one of the flours as well.
Milk, in this recipe is the main wet ingredient. Lemon juice is added to milk in order to form a buttermilk, which further acts as an egg replacement. I have used Nestle toned milk for this recipe. You can swatch it with any kind of milk.
Bananas, again, are a great egg substitute and give stability to the product. good ripe bananas are the sweetest and best to use for these Banana Muffins. They also provide moisture to the batter.
Oats are a typical breakfast item. They are rich in fiber and goes well with bananas. I used Rolled Oats both inside the batter as well as on the topping.
I am using honey as a sweetener in this recipe. Apart from being a healthier choice, honey also gives these muffins a richer color, an evenly browned crust and better flavor.
Vegetable oil keeps the muffins moist and soft.
EQUIPMENTS USED FOR MAKING BREAKFAST BANANA MUFFINS
The kind of equipment you use can hugely impact the final product. So, make sure to always use the best of the equipment that is available.
Starting off with the fact that this is a one bowl recipe, I have used this Borosil’s 100% Borosilicate Glass Bowl to make my muffin batter.
I have folded the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients using my Silicon Spatula and scooped the batter into my muffin mould.
I lined the muffin tray with muffin liners.
Finally, I baked these delicious Breakfast Banana Muffins in my Borosil 60L oven.

TIPS TO MAKE BREAKFAST BANANA MUFFINS
You can make this recipe either with completely all purpose flour or whole wheat flour just by replacing the amount of one with another.
Use ripe to overripe bananas for this recipe. If you feel that the bananas are raw, then simple heat them in the oven for a few mins at. Mash the bananas nicely so that they evenly distribute in the batter.
Make sure that the leavening agents are not expired or else, the product will not rise properly and give the desired texture.
Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature.
Put equal amount of batter into each muffin mould.
Cinnamon is optional in the recipe but is highly recommended as it elevates the overall flavour altogether. You can also add a pinch of nutmeg.
Sprinkle oats on top for crunch.
