A muffin sweetened by banana (and chocolate chips if you choose), that make a portable and delicious morning meal!
Ingredients
  • 2 large or 3 smaller ripe bananas (yields about 1.5 cups mashed)
  • 2-3 large eggs lightly beaten
  • ¾ cup milk of your choice
  • 2 tsp real vanilla (I prefer Penzey's)
  • 2 ½ cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • muffin tin, liners, large bowl, spatula
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350.
  2. Peel the bananas and place them into the bowl first. With a potato masher or fork, mash the bananas until they are soft and nearly liquid.
  3. Add the liquid ingredients: beaten eggs (add an extra egg for more protein, and just add some additional baking time if you do), milk, and vanilla.
  4. Then add the dry ingredients: oats, baking powder and soda, salt, and optional chocolate chips and cinnamon.
  5. Pour an equal amount into a lined 12-cup muffin tin, and place in pre-heated oven for 22-25 minutes.
