Ingredients you’ll need
- Bananas–I use 3 medium ripe bananas
- Whole wheat flour-provides structure, makes these muffins healthier besides making these muffins yummy delicious.
- Oatmeal-It makes a nice combination with whole wheat flour and again makes these banana muffins filling and healthier.
- Baking soda and baking powder– work as a leavener
- Granulated Sugar-I use a little as there are also chocolate chips. If you like you can use maple syrup or your choice of sweetener to make these muffins on the completely healthy side.
- Eggs-create structure
- Vanilla and cinnamon– enrich the flavor
- Melted butter and milk-enrich the flavor and add moisture
- Chocolate chips-I use semi-sweet mini chocolate chips.
How to make banana oatmeal muffins
First, I place the whole wheat flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda in a large bowl and stir. I set aside the bowl.
Then I slice the bananas, place in a medium bowl and mash with a fork.
Next, I add the melted butter, milk, sugar and stir with a whisk.
I stir in the eggs and mix in the vanilla.
Then, I add the wet ingredient mixture into dry ingredient mixture. I stir until combined.
Finally I reserve 1 tablespoon of chocolate chips aside to use them later and add the rest to the mixture and stir with a spoon/spatula.
I bake for 20-22 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
I keep them in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring on a wire rack to completely cool.
