Banana Oat Muffin

These muffins are very tasty and very light!  I’m trying to introduce a few oats to my diet for some specific health needs and decided to try a bit in my MIM today.  And since I had a banana getting overripe, I decided to add a bit of that, too, to my usual MIM this morning.  Mmmmm, is all I can say!  They are higher in carbs than the plain MIM, but a nice treat once in awhile.  Ya just have to watch your carbs closely the rest of the day to avoid going over your daily limit.  Due to the oats, this is not acceptable until the grains rung of OWL.

INGREDIENTS:

1 tsp. butter

1 large egg

2 T. mashed, ripe banana

3/4  tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 packet stevia or Truvia sweetener

2 drops liquid sweetener (optional, if you like them sweeter)

1/4 c. flax meal

1 T. oat flour (ground oats)

DIRECTIONS:

Melt butter in small ceramic ramekin or bowl.  Stir in mashed banana and beaten egg.  Add all dry ingredients and stir well. Microwave on HI for 90 seconds.  ENJOY!
