Banana Oat Muffins

I like to think that I made muffins a whole lot healthier by altering the basic muffin recipe that I had by making these substitutions –

1) Butter with oil
2) Sour cream with yogurt
3) Reduced the quantity of whole-purpose flour (maida) quantity by half by replacing it with oats and whole wheat flour.

It was supposed to be an experiment, and I was surprised that the resultant Banana Oat muffins were so soft and spongy! Plus, bonus points to me for using up the quick oats that have been lying around for some time now.

Note: To turn quick oats into oat flour, pulse the oats until they are ground into a powder-like consistency.
