On school mornings, muffins are always a hit for a quick bite to eat on the run. Since most schools don’t allow snacks with nuts, these healthy apple banana muffins are also a great snack idea. This recipe has apples, bananas, oats, and no added sugar.

Depending on the preference of people in your home, I peeled and cut the apples into super tiny pieces. What can I say, my kids have an opinion! Cutting the apples is the longest part of the recipe to do.

  • In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas, apples, egg, milk, honey, vegetable oil and mix together.
  • In a smaller bowl add the cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder, flour, oats and mix well.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the bowl with the wet ingredients.
  • Add batter into greased or lined muffin trays. Fill trays 3/4 of the way full
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 350 or until a toothpick comes out clean.
