It’s true; lots-a-oats healthy banana muffins are grain-free, heart-healthy, and very low-fat. But guess what? These oat and banana muffins are so darn good no one will ever guess they are low-fat.

 

I’m an oat and muffin lover that’s for sure. If you were to ask me to recommend a healthy muffin to try…this would be the one!!

 

I can’t decide if I like them better fresh or the next morning.

These heart-healthy muffins are so soft and tender you will be shocked to know there is only one tablespoon of coconut oil in the entire recipe. Your friends will think you are a magician in the kitchen.

 

And as always I love having a great recipe for my spotted bananas!! It’s even better when it’s a healthy recipe.
