Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats (NOT the instant type)
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate chips but any type would work)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 3 ripe bananas, finely mashed (approximately 1 cup mashed banana)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Spray 12 muffin tins.
  3. Put the first six ingredients in a large bowl and whisk or stir well with a fork, to combine.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Make a well in the centre.
  6. In a second, smaller bowl, using a fork, beat eggs.
  7. Add oil, milk and mashed bananas to eggs and stir with a fork to combine.
  8. Pour into well, stir gently to moisten all ingredients, don't overmix.
  9. Fill muffin cups ¾ full. (I used an ice-cream scoop)
  10. Bake in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a muffin comes out clean.
The recipe said the yield was 12 muffins, but my yield was 11. Most likely related to using the ice-cream scoop which may have added a bit more batter to each of the tins.
