Banana Oatmeal muffins (with chocolate chips) to be exact!
I don’t bake which is why this is a big deal.
I like to bake but it never turns out good, which is why this is a big deal.
I like to eat baked goods, which is why this is a big deal!
There was something about this baked goods recipe that grabbed me and said
“You will bake me tonight and it will turn out good”
I was kinda scared when I heard a muffin recipe speak to me, kinda like those creepy Pier One commercials that have things talk to you in the store
I was afraid that if I didn’t make these I would have creepy nightmares….. wooo hahahaha.
I’m probably creeping y’all out with this creepy post.
Sorry, here they are.
Ok first of all. These are healthy, not in I wanna throw them in the trash healthy, but as in no flour, sugar or butter healthy :)
Second of all, my teenager had seconds :)
And third of all, my first attempt at a recipe of this type and score :)
Make a batch for your bunch and see if they reach for seconds.
It makes 12 muffins.
You will need:
- 2.5 cups old fashioned oats
- 1 cup plain low fat greek yogurt
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 TBSP ground flax seed
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 ripe bananas
- ½ cup of Semi-sweet chocolate chips (or chopped nuts if you prefer those instead)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray tin with non-stick cooking spray or line 12 muffin tins with muffin liners and spray them so the muffins will not stick.
- Place the oats in the food processor and pulse for about 10 seconds. Add remaining ingredients to the food processor. (Now I don’t have a food processor so I used my small chopper to grind the oats and then mixed it all in a large bowl with the mixer and it worked fine. The processor would’ve probably given me a smoother texture but mine were just fine.)
- Process until everything is mixed together and oats are smooth.
- Mix in the chocolate chips. (or nuts or whatever you want to add really.)
- Divide batter among cupcake liners, and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
- Let them cool on a wire rack for just a few minutes and then dig in. They are amazing when they are warm!
All I can say is yum! My second batch is coming up soon!
