Banana Oat Muffins

It’s feast or famine at my house with bananas.  They either get consumed immediately upon their arrival or there are a few sad, overripe ones sitting on the counter.  The sad ones either make it into the freezer for smoothies or these easy, healthy (ish!), delicious muffins.  Everything goes into one bowl and no mixer needed.   Give them a try next time a lonely banana is on your counter. 


1 1/3 cup                          All-purpose flour

1/3 cup                             Sugar

2 tsp                                  Baking powder

½ tsp                                 Salt

1                                        Egg

1/3 cup                             Vegetable oil

½ cup                                 Milk

2 tbs                                  Melted butter

2 large or 3 small            Mashed, overripe bananas

1/3 cup                             Mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup                                 Old fashioned oats (I like Quaker)

1 tbs                                  Raw sugar for garnish


Heat oven to 350.

In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  In a separate bowl or large measuring cup, combine the egg, melted butter, milk, and oil.  Add to the flour mixture along with the bananas, chocolate chips and oats. 

Using a small ice cream scoop (mine is about a 3 tbs measure), fill a muffin pan (I use liners because I hate to clean pans) 2/3s of the way.  Sprinkle with some raw sugar and bake for approximately 20 -25 minutes until light brown (depending on your oven) and the edges are just starting to show some color.

Transfer to a rack and cool.  Enjoy!
