BANANA OATMEAL MUFFINS TOPPED WITH CHOCOLATE CHIPS

If you love the banana and chocolate combination, you will love these. Besides the chocolate chips, the muffins are only sweetened with the banana. 2 OR 3 full bananas give them a nice banana flavor that banana lovers will adore.

➧The reason I keep making baked oatmeal muffins so often is they are so easy and the kids love them.

BAKED BANANA OATMEAL MUFFINS TOPPED WITH CHOCOLATE CHIPS RECIPE


INGREDIENTS:

➥3 cups rolled oats
➥2 teaspoons baking powder
➥1 teaspoon cinnamon
➥¹/₈ teaspoon ground nutmeg
➥¹/₂ teaspoon kosher salt
➥1 cup mashed banana (2-3 bananas depending on their size)
➥2 pastured eggs
➥1¹/₂ cups of unsweetened almond milk (or any milk you prefer)
➥2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips

METHOD:

➲Preheat oven to 350°F.
➲Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray or coat with coconut oil or butter.

➲In a large bowl combine oats, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.

➲In a separate bowl mix together mashed bananas, eggs, and milk until well combined.

➲Pour milk mixture over oat mixture and stir well to combine.

➲Evenly divide the oat mixture between all 12 muffin cup and then top each one with a sprinkle of chocolate chips.

➲Bake for 20-25 minutes or until set and cooked through. Allow to cool and then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.

Recipe Notes:

*These muffins are at their best when warm or room temperature so when you want to eat them from the fridge, you can either heat them on the microwave for 30-45 seconds or pop them in the toaster oven until warm.

*I used the bananas to keep this recipe naturally sweet. If you like a sweeter flavor you can add a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar or coconut sugar along with the dry ingredients.

I topped each muffin with chocolate chips because my kids demand them. Feel free to use other mix-ins like blueberries, walnuts, raisins or raspberries. Stirring them into the batter is certainly an option if you want more flavor thought the muffin cup.
