Hola Amigos! Glad to be here a the blog today sharing  with you my first "from scratch" muffins!
You know me, I'm still yet to conquer my fear of baking sweets from scratch, the flour, the baking powder, the not over mixing, it's all a big headache for me and I tend to avoid those at any cost! But once in a while, with deep breaths and fire extinguisher at hand, I get enough courage to try something simple and safe.

Perhaps one day I'll do something more daring, for now, these muffins are just what I need.

I think I fell I little more comfortable because it was one of my mom's  easy recipes, designs for her baking impaired daughter. If something was to go wrong on the first try, I could always call her and ask for help. I know you must be thinking how could I mess up muffins...believe me I Can!

They have  a little extra healthy crunch with the Flax, but that's about it..I even put some glaze over because to my hubs it is not a muffin if it doesn't have glaze...that sounds more like a cupcake to me..but I'm here to please.

  1. Yum these look really good. I think I will be making them as soon as I pick up some bananas and flax seed. I bet you're a great cook and the key is to not be intimidated. Sometimes things don't work out, but I bet a majority of the time they will.
    With Love,
    Al @ Shaffer Sisters

    1. Hi Al! Thank You so much for the cote of confidence. I'm letting go of my fears little by little and experimenting with baking from scratch, so far that's what it is, lol...sometimes It's a hit and sometimes I feel like yelling..It's Alive...It's Alive...run for your lives..LoL it's all good just part of the learning process, Hugs, Lizy

  2. I love that they have both banana and oatmeal in them, makes it something I'd let my family have for breakfast. Too many muffins really are, in my estimation, more a dessert than a muffin.

    1. Hi Karen, without the glaze they are the perfect amount of sweetness with the banana and honey, but you know the hubs and his sweet tooth..he had to have the glaze, we all had them for breakfast with milk and coffee, they were good indeed, Thanks for stopping girl :)

  3. Your Oatmeal Banana Muffins look so yummmmy!!! =)
    You did a wonderful job!! Pinning to save!

  4. These are really healthy! When I see an item like flax seed in the store, I know I should probably be eating them, but how? It's nice to have them in a muffin recipe because, for me, muffins are easy to mix, pour, bake, and eat! Your pictures are fabulous - as always!

  5. G'day Lizbeth! Your muffin look healthy and yum indeed, true!
    Wish I could come through the screen and try one of these right now too!
    Cheers! Joanne

  6. These muffins are looking GREAT !!
    Seem to be moist and rich - just perfect

  7. These sound so yummy! I can't wait to try this sometime. Hope this finds you well. Theresa @DearCreatives

  8. Yum. I wish I had flour so I could make these. I love oatmeal muffins and banana muffins so I think combining the two would be even better.

  9. These look really yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe :).

  10. Hurrah for you and they do look delicious!

  11. Banana and oatmeal is a winner in my book. These look great.

  12. Hi LIzy, these muffins look amazing and so healthy! I saw it on freedom fridays party. Julie at julieslifestyle.blogspot.com

  13. Hi Lizbeth. I'm stopping in from Let's Get Real today. I just had to check out your baking. These muffins look awesome. I would also probably remove the glaze, but these are pretty much real food approved which makes this momma happy. I always joke with my kids that muffins are an excuse to eat cake at any time of the day. The added flax seed adds so much nutrition and I bet a nice nutty flavor.

  14. Not only are these muffins nice and hearty, they are also heart healthy! Thanks so much for sharing at Simple Supper Tuesday.

  15. YUM! I love this recipe, thanks for sharing it!

  17. I prefer cooking to baking, so perhaps I need to get over my fear of the baking too. I seem to overbake everything.

    This looks yummy!

  18. These look so good! Thanks for sharing your recipes with Life Created link party last week! I hope you'll join us again; this week's party goes live tonight :)

  19. The muffins look great and I love how you added oatmeal and flax to make it even more filling. Thanks for linking up to Gingerly Made's Show & Tell.

  20. I will take two! Looks delish and I think I can follow the recipe. Never thought of a glaze for muffins....now I am going to have to test that out on a couple different varities!! Thanks for sharing on Snickerdoodle Sunday!
