Oh. My. Gosh.
I am in serious recovery mode from the last four days of FEAST Portland insanity. It was SO MUCH FUN, you guys! Incredible! AAH! I'll talk more about it later this week, but I can't NOT mention it today. I'm still processing, and entering a serious detox week of eating only veggies 99% of the time. #necessary
These muffins happened last week when I was craving warm fall foods — we had a little bit of fall weather (that has since left us) and I was LOVING IT! Also loving: the muffins! They're hearty, thanks to the oats and whole wheat, not-too-cakey (it's not a cupcake! It's a MUFFIN!), perfectly banana-y, and pretty darn addicting. I think I might make these into a loaf soon, too!
With that, I leave you to it. My brain is still in food-coma from Feasting! I'll be back with rambles soon, I'm sure. xoxoPrint

These look delicious and I think my boys would actually eat them. They love bananas.
Yay! I hope they love them! Thanks, Sarai!
I'm loving all of your recent recipe posts!! These look delish - and I welcome the use of buttermilk as I am always looking for ways to use it up whenever I buy some for a recipe 🙂
Thanks, Allison! I'm currently in the buttermilk situation... not sure what I'm gonna do about it! Enjoy! xo
As soon as I'm done detoxing (so 2016?), I will be making these. Love love love banana muffins.
Yeah, 2016 is looking like the next time I'll eat/drink anything other than veggies. Oofta! So glad we got to hang out and FEAST together! SO MUCH FUN!

Oh, these look fantastic! Storing this recipe away for the next time I've got some extra-ripe bananas sitting around.
Thanks, Megan! Enjoy! xo

So glad you had a good time at FEAST! I've been following you along on IG, and it looked so awesome! These banana muffins, though. YUM! Also, love the parchment paper muffin cups!
OMG I wish you could have been there! The drinks were FLOWING. Next year — COME UP FOR IT! Seriously. I'll remind you 🙂

Hi is there anything i can sub for maple syruo..thanks
Hi Julie! Definitely! You can use any other sweetener, but pay attention to the liquid — if you use a dry sweetener (regular sugar), you may need to slightly increase the liquid in the recipe! Enjoy!
