Refined flour is unhealthy and is advisable for kids to avoid it as much as possible. However I have added nutrient rich oats, banana and walnuts to make these muffins healthier.

Ingredients

Mashed banana 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Chopped walnut 1 Tablespoon
Plain flour 4 Tablespoon
Baking powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Soft butter 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Powdered sugar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Vanilla essence 1/4 Teaspoon
Quick cooking rolled oats 2 Tablespoon
