These nutritious and delicious muffins are perfect for an on the go breakfast or a quick snack.  The combination of the bananas and yogurt results in a tender muffin and the chocolate chips add just the right amount of sweetness.

Ingredients: 

  • 6 oz plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups rolled oats (old fashioned or quick)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ cup chocolate chips, mini or regular

Instructions: 

Preheat oven to 400F and prepare a muffin pan by spraying cavities with cooking spray or lining them with paper liners sprayed with cooking oil.

Add all ingredients except for chocolate chips to a blender or food processor and process on high until oats are broken down and batter is smooth and creamy.  Stir in chocolate chips by hand.

Pour batter into prepared muffin pan, filling each cavity until it is about ¾ full. For added chocolate goodness, sprinkle a few chocolate chips over the top of each muffin.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the tops of the muffins are set and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Allow muffins to cool in pan for about 10 minutes before removing. The muffins may be stored in an air-tight container for up to a week.
