I have posted muffin recipes before, but they all tend to taste “healthy.” That is fine, but I love the idea of not noticing so much. After many batches of muffins (Marc had no complaints!), I finally came up with this recipe, which I think is pretty darn tasty. They are great for snacks, dessert or even breakfast!
Makes 12 muffins
- 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
- 3/4 cups old fashioned oats (I used Quick Oats one time and it worked well too)
- 2 tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 3 ripe frozen bananas, mashed *
- 2 tbsp. honey
- 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
- 1 cup Greek yogurt (or 1/2 cup Greek yogurt and 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 1 egg
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
Preheat over to 350 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Mix wet ingredients in a small bowl. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Add chocolate chips last.
Pour the mixture evenly into a greased 12 muffin tin. I find that the paper cups stick to the muffins because there is not oil or butter in the recipe.
Bake for 18 – 20 mins. You can test if they are done by inserting a toothpick into the centre of a muffin. If it comes out clean they are ready.
*I freeze my bananas because the extra water makes for a moister muffin. But, you can use unfrozen bananas without any problems.
