Banana oatmeal chocolate chip muffins


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)

Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.)
  3. Process until everything is mixed together and oats are smooth.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips. (or nuts or whatever you want to add really.)
  5. Divide batter among cupcake liners, and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Let them cool on a wire rack for just a few minutes and then dig in. They are amazing when they are warm!
