Banana Oat Muffins

This recipe is adapted from Anne's Banana Oatmeal Muffins in the Among Friends cookbook by Roxie Kelley and Shelly Reeves Smith.  My oldest son loves oatmeal and this recipe is one of his favorite  after school snacks.  For me it's all about that crunchy, crackly, sugary top.

1 cup oats, not instant
1 cup boiling water
3 bananas, mashed
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups AP flour
1 cup white whole wheat flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
 cinnameg sugar for sprinkling on top (1/4 c. sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, pinch salt)

Preheat oven to 375.
In a small bowl pour hot water over oats and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl stir together bananas, eggs, oil, buttermilk, vanilla and sugar.
Add flours, soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.    Mix until combined.  
Add moistened oatmeal and combine well.
Pour into 12 greased and or papered muffin cups or into greased loaf pan.
Bake muffins 21 minutes at 375.
Bake loaf 30 minutes at 375.
