Eggless Banana Oats Mufffins!!

Growing up, I never cared about calories. But, recently, me and my husband both are trying to eat healthy food. My husband says tasty food is never healthy. But after tasting these muffins, view of all those people who think like him, will change - at least his view did change.  These are butter-less & almost sugar-free muffins. They make for a perfect morning breakfast.  Even if you don't like oats, you will surely enjoy these delicious oat muffins!!
