Banana and Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal Muffins

These muffins are delightful and healthy too. No refined sugar! This is a great breakfast on the go with a hint of chocolate. I like having lots of these around so I like to double this recipe. One thing I do differently is I add a little more liquid (milk) and I let the wet and dry soak for about 5 minutes before putting them in the muffin tin. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats or old fashioned oat
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup mashed banana, 2 bananas
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk (or almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the rolled oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder and the salt. Set aside.
  3. In another medium bowl mash the bananas and add the 2 eggs, whisk together with a fork and continue to add to it the maple syrup and vanilla until the ingredients are combined and smooth.
  4. Slowly whisk in the milk and coconut oil.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until all the oats are covered and moistened.
  6. Slowly stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Spray the muffin pan with cooking spray then divide the oatmeal mixture among the 12 muffin tins. Press the mixture down with a fork so all the oats are covered in a bit of liquid.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes or until the tops are slightly brown.
  9. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  10. They freeze well for a quick on the go snack.
