PB-Banana-Oatmeal-CC-Flaxseed Muffins

I'm really bad at following recipes, but I also can't cook without them.  Today I found a banana oatmeal muffin recipe, but it called for 2 bananas and I only had 1. Then I found another oatmeal muffin recipe but it called for 5 cups of oats and I only had 2 so I worked with what I had and came up with this.  (And they were realllly good- though a little crumbly).
