Banana Oat Cardamom Muffins

Banana Oat Cardamom Muffins

Do you follow us on Instagram? If so, you know we sometimes debut recipes there before we get them to the site. Ceri and I are constantly recipe testing/fine-tuning and we sometimes can’t wait until the next time we’re in the studio shooting our fancy images to share a dish with you. It’s why these supremely delicious muffins became an Instagram post before they were even part of our stable here. They also became a mainstay in my house thanks to their fragrant and warm spices paired with the universal appeal of oats and banana. I think Scarlett lived on them the first three weeks of school.

If you’re looking for an easy, morning meal, school snack, late day nibble or midnight binge (wait, is that just me?!) then these muffins are your thang. And if you’re not convinced of their yumminess, check the comments of their Insta post. If I can’t sway you to try them then maybe @emilyecolvin can.
