🍽 Equipment Used

🥡 Storage

For the best freshness and quality, store any leftover banana oat muffins in an airtight container. They will last 3–7 days at room temperature. To keep them longer, you can store them in the freezer for 2–3 months. Refrigerating them is not recommended because the muffins could quickly dry out and become stale.

👩🏻‍🍳 Expert Tips

  • To enhance the flavor, consider adding a spoonful of peanut butter, chocolate chips, or some caramelized bananas to the muffin batter or as toppings.
  • Create your own homemade oat flour using rolled oats and a food processor for a fresher taste compared to store-bought options.
  • Allow the muffins to cool on a wire rack before serving.
