whole wheat maple oat muffins {egg free}

Please excuse the lack of "how to" photos. I made these on a whim after rolling what felt like a million Swedish meatballs. During my only 1.5 free hours on Wednesday. The recipe turned out much too good for me to not share right away. They are delicious, warm, maple goodness.

It is a good feeling when you make something wholesome and delicious for your family to enjoy on the go. This is defiantly that. My girls have been loving them and eating them as we fly out the door in the morning. I think you should make them this weekend. Seriously, what is more appealing than a freshly baked muffin? That's right. Nothing.

Whole wheat maple oat muffins
makes 12 large muffins

12 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, plus more for brushing tops
1 cup light sour cream
1/4 cup milk
1 cup quick cook oats, plus 1 tablespoon for tops
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flower
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Place 12 paper liners in a muffin pan. In bowl with an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. About 5 minutes. With the mixer on low add the banana, vanilla, sour cream, and milk. Turn mixer to lowest speed and add the flower, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat until just mixed. Scoop batter using and ice cream scoop into prepared muffin pan. Bake for 30 minutes until the tops are brown and a cake tester (aka: toothpick) comes out clean. Brush tops of muffins with maple syrup and a sprinkle of uncooked oats. Mostly because it looks pretty and it give the eater an idea of what they are about to consume.

**If you like you can add 1 egg or an egg replacer after creaming sugar and butter. We are an egg free family. The texture turns out light and moist with the sour cream and mashed banana.

Any suggestions as to what I should bake this weekend?

i totally agree... such a great feeling when making something delicious and health... and even better- ON THE GO!! like i shared in my recent post, i've let that part go quite a bit this past year (healthy treats... snacks...) and as of this week, i've gained it back. today, i'm making blueberry/banana muffins from jillian's master your metabolism book (healthy & on the go!).

{i've put r & i on her diet... haven't dieted in years (since after hailey was born)... but these extra 15-20 lbs. are just NOT coming off... so we're getting all serious now :)}
