Banana-Butterscotch Muffins

This time last week, I was polishing off yet another delicious muffin.  Nathan and I spent last Friday afternoon trying to clean up the kitchen and I caught wind of some very ripe bananas.  Everyone knows that you make banana bread with them.  Granted, I like banana bread just fine, but it's gotten to be a boring standard for old bananas. This is a much tastier option.  I hope you'll agree!

1 large banana (about 2/3 cup), mashed
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. flour
1 c. rolled oats
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp.  baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. butterscotch chips
Combine mashed banana, egg, sugar, milk, vanilla and oil in a medium bowl.
In a large bowl, add dry ingredients.
Stir banana mixture into dry minture.  Spoon batter into greased muffin cups.  Bake at 400 for 12-15 min.
NB: Recipe doubles easily. You could also use peanut butter or chocolate chips with no other substitutions needed.  I used 1/4 cup whole wheat flour to 3/4 c white.  I also added flax meal (about 1/2 cup or so) and Benefiber.  YUM!
