Banana Oat Muffins

This is our family's favorite recipe for banana nut bread, although I eliminate the nuts and I never make it in a loaf pan.  I always make the recipe in muffin form.  They are moist and delicious! Not sure what makes the difference, but this is not your average banana nut recipe.  It's a cut above!  It's definitely worth trying!  A small army of them stood at attention, cooling on the counter today.

1/2 c. butter
3/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 c. mashed bananas
1 t. vanilla
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. oatmeal
1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9 x 5 pan, or a muffin tin (yields 12 muffins).

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; then stir in the banana and vanilla.

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Beat into creamed mixture.  Stir in oats and nuts (optional).  Spoon into prepared pan or muffin tins.

Bake for 50-55 mins. (for loaf), or 25 mins. (for muffins).

*Recipe can be easily doubled, tripled, or quadrupled.  Freezes very well.
