Description

Adapted from this pumpkin muffin recipe from Pinch of Yum.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 medium very ripe bananas (with brown spots), about 2 cups sliced
  • 6 ounces milk or plain whole milk Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips, optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and grease 10 cups of a standard size muffin tin.
  2. Place the oats into a food processor or blender. Grind for about 30 seconds or until they resemble a coarse flour.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients except the chocolate chips, if using.
  4. Blend until very smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl if needed.
  5. Divide among 10 muffin cups. You want each cup to be about 3/4 full. Top with chocolate chips if using.
  6. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until firm to the touch and lightly golden brown around the edges. Let cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack (or just tilt a bit in the pan to let air flow underneath) to cool. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled.

Notes

TIPS

For mini muffins, bake for 12-14 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the centers comes out cleanly.

For the best flavor and natural sweetness, use very ripe bananas with a lot of brown spots.

To make these by hand, use store-bought oat flour, mash the banana very smooth, and mix together in a mixing bowl.

You can use either Greek yogurt or milk in these muffins. Yogurt will make for slightly flatter muffins, but they will taste the same.

Add a few chocolate chips to the tops of each muffin if desired.

These muffins can store in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-5 days. Or in the freezer in a zip top freezer bag for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge or at room temperature.

Serve cold or slightly warmed.
