In our Oatmeal Muffins, fresh bananas and apples take the place of the eggs, oil, and sugar found in traditional muffin recipes. Mix these ripe fruits together with a few basic baking ingredients, then boost both flavor and texture with the addition of cinnamon, raisins, and walnuts. Pop them in the oven and your home will be filled with sweet and spicy smells until the timer dings in 35 minutes. The recipe makes 12 muffins that will satisfy your sweet tooth—the perfect treat for your loved ones!
Combine Homemade Nut Milk, bananas, apple, and vanilla in a small mixing bowl.

Stir in raisins and walnuts (optional).
Bake in a standard 12-muffin tin for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
