Eggless Banana Oats and Nuts muffin

To me muffins are a versatile food in that it can be had for breakfast, as a snack or as a dessert.  I enjoy making them as much as my kids enjoy eating them.  I got hooked to this muffin recipe on  Zesty South Indian Kitchen as it has very less oil and used a combination of wheat flour and oats. Having tried this, I decided to send this to Priya's Bookmarked Recipes - Every Tuesday.  But I made a few changes like replacing the egg with milk and oil and some pecans instead of walnuts.

Here is what I did:
1/2 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup quick oats(powder it coarse)
2 ripe bananas
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/8 cup oil
1/4 cup milk(can use fat free)
1 tbsp milk plus 3 tbsp oil(instead of 1 egg)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp + 1/8 tsp cinnamon powder
1/8 tsp ginger powder
1/8 tsp clove powder
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 tsp salt

Pre heat the oven to 375 degrees.  Combine all the dry ingredients well  in a bowl.   Beat the milk and oil used in place of an egg well.  Add the brown sugar, oil and milk and combine well.   Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir the mixture to combine.  Fold in the mashed bananas and the nuts.  Fill the greased muffin pans and bake them for 20 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.
