Sharing is caring!

These Banana Oatmeal Crunch Muffins are power-packed with hearty oatmeal, sweet bananas and crunch pecan. This is a perfect recipe for breakfast, a mid-afternoon snack or even dessert.

Oatmeal is one of my “power foods.” Not only do I enjoy it but it really fills me up and keeps my belly satisfied. Yep, there is no belly rumbling throughout the morning when I have a nice warm bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. Most mornings, however, I am in a rush {surprise, surprise} and don’t often have enough time to brush my hair let alone sit down and enjoy a bowl of oatmeal.

One of my favorite things to do during the cold winter months is bake. These Banana Oatmeal Crunch Muffins are the result of being stuck inside the house on a recent snow day. I basically combined my favorite oatmeal ingredients {bananas, oatmeal and pecans} into an easy, yet hearty, grab and go muffin. Pat myself on the back for that one!

Muffins are probably one of the easiest recipes to make too and these Banana Oatmeal Crunch Muffins are no different. The are perfect for a quick breakfast, mid-afternoon snack or even dessert. These muffins are a hearty blend of banana and oatmeal with a sweet crunch pecan streusel topping. YUM-MY!

I begin by mixing the streusel topping ingredients and setting aside.

Once the dry ingredients is mixed, I whisk the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl and then combine with the dry ingredients. Remember, don’t over mix the batter! There is nothing worse that a tough muffin.
