Banana Oat Muffins

I made these for breakfast last week and they were GONE, all 12 of them, in about 25 minutes! Of course, there were 7 of us eating them but still. They are very good and they really stick with you until lunch time because of the oats. Here is what you will need:

*Pre heat ove to 350
*In a large bowl combine 1 heaping cup of quick oats, 1 cup flour, 1 tbsp each baking soda and baking powder, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp salt.

*In a mixer, cream together 1/2 cup soft butter and 1 cup sugar.

*Add 2 eggs and mix thoroughly after each one.

*Add in 1 tsp vanilla, 1 cup mashed banana (I think I actually used a little more...didn't really measure!), and 1/2 cup sour cream.

*Here is what your wet and dry ingredients should look like:

*Pour your wet ingredients into the big bowl containing your dry ingredients. I like to mix muffins batter by hand so that it doesn't get over worked. The less you mix it the better! So mix it until it is just combined.
*Fill greased muffin tins about 3/4 of the way full and set aside.

*To make the topping combine 1/3 cup oats, 4 tbsp brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 2 tbsp cold butter. I kind of just mixed it with my hands! Here is what it looks like:

*Top each muffin with some of the topping until you have used it all.

*Bake muffins for 22 minutes
