We have made these a few times....girls really like them as muffins or bread, best part is they are healthy, few ingredients I always have on hand, and so quick to cook!

Here are some of our favorite Banana Oatmeal Muffin comments from 5th-grade students in Josephine county, Oregon: 

  • I love it! I love muffins, oatmeal and bananas! Great mix!
  • I love it. Especially the banana. I like the texture and I think it should be on the menu in every single school in Oregon.
  • I love the little banana chunks. I would love if our school cafeteria had this. This is the best muffin I ever had!
  • I can taste banana. I would eat this all day if I could. 5 stars for me! Perfect!
