choco-chip-banana oat muffins

Browsing through Pinterest (as I often do), I stumbled across some delicious looking banana muffins. Having been brought up always having a fresh baked tin full of muffins on the kitchen counter and a bunch of nearly brown bananas, I thought I might as well give this recipe a shot.

The original recipe serves ~18, seeing as my muffin tin only makes 12 muffins I had to modify it a little. As it turns out, and I’ve since used this recipe many times, the measurements are very open to interpretation and error and the muffins turn out fine.

Serves 12, ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/3 cups brown sugar
  • 1+ tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 whole egg in measuring cup, top up with egg whites to 1/3 cup line
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup mashed bananas
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • semi-sweet chocolate chips, as many is yummy (i.e. 3/4 cups)
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray tin with cooking spray or line with muffin papers. 
  2. Combine oats, brown sugar, baking powder + salt in large bowl. Mix.
  3. Whisk eggs, mashed banana, milk + vanilla. Add all dry ingredients + stir.
  4. Bake 18-22 mins.
  5. ENJOY!
