Ingredients

1 cup  Flour, white, unbleached, enriched
0 1/2 cup  packed brown sugar
0 1/2 tsp  baking soda
1 tsp  low sodium baking powder
0 1/2 tsp  ground cinnamon
0 1/4 tsp  ground nutmeg
1 cup  Oats, rolled, baked value
1 each  egg whites
1 each  eggs
2 tbsp  vegetable oil
2 each  Banana, medium, fresh
0 1/2 cup  plain nonfat yogurt
0 1/2 cup  seedless raisins
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Prepare a muffin tin with paper liners or a very light coating of oil.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  4. Whirl the oats in a blender; (you should have about 3/4 cup of processed oats). Stir them into the dry ingredients.
  5. In another bowl, beat the egg white for 3 minutes, until foamy but not stiff. Stir in the egg, oil, mashed bananas, yogurt, and raisins (or currants). Fold the wet ingredients into the flour mixture just until combined.
  6. Spoon the batter into the muffin tin and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean and dry. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes; loosen each muffin by running a knife around the edge, and then tip out onto a rack to cool completely.
