Banana Orange Muffins recipe – 143 calories

1 1/2 cups Quaker Oats (uncooked)
1/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/3 cup raisins, chopped (optional) or dates (optional)

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Line 12 medium muffin cups with paper baking cups (or lightly spray the bottoms only with cooking spray).
3. In a large bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and raisins or dates (if using); mix well.
4. In a medium bowl, combine the bananas, yogurt, egg whites, vegetable oil and orange peel; blend well.
5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened (do not overmix).
6. Fill the muffin cups until they’re almost full.
7. Bake for about 20-22 minutes (or until the muffins turn golden brown).
8. Cool the muffins in the pan on a wire rack for about 5 minutes; remove from the pan.
