Semi-Sweet Banana Oat Muffins

Semi-sweet banana oat muffins


The kids are home for summer break, and are have they been eating healthy breakfast in the mornings?? I know we have been eating a lot of cereal. I wanted to make something that had a little more protein in it, so they would be eating something healthier. These muffins did the trick. I made them a head of time, so if they got up before I did in the morning they were there to eat.

I love muffins because you can toss just about any fruit, raisin, nut or chocolate chip you want in a muffin batter and it’s gong to be amazing. If you are like me you usually have a really ripe banana or two laying around the kitchen that can be whipped right into that muffin batter. These Semi-Sweet Banana Oat Muffins are packed full of lots of protein and goodness to fill those bellies of your loved ones. I hope you enjoy this wonderful recipe from my kitchen to yours.

 

banana oat muffins 1

 

1 1/2 cup of flour

 1 cup of old fashion oats

 1/2 cup of brown sugar

 1/2 tsp of baking soda

 1 tsp of baking powder

 1/2 tsp of salt

 3 medium bananas, mashed

 1/4 cup of melted butter

 1/4 cup of milk

 1 T of vanilla extract

 1 large egg

 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix together bananas, brown sugar, salt, butter, vanilla, egg and milk. In a medium sized bowl mix together the baking soda, baking powder and flour. Add to banana mixture 1/2 cup at a time. Once it is mix very well. Fold in your semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Take a muffin tin and line them with muffin liners. I always like to spray just a little bit of non-stick spray in my liners just in case, but that’s optional. Scoop the muffin batter into each liner evenly. Be sure to not fill it up too much because they are going to rise in the oven a little bit. Once all the muffin tin is filled bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees F.

Yields: 16-18 muffins
