Serves Preparation Time Cooking Time
12 People 25 Minutes  15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oats (quick cooking or old fashioned)
  • 2 large very ripe bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2-3 tbsps (tablespoons) honey
  • 1 1/2 tsps (teaspoons) baking powder(I prefer aluminum free)
  • 1/2 tspn baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
  • Up to 1/2 cup mix-ins: chocolate chips (mini or regular), chopped dark chocolate, nuts, dried cranberries, or blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 4000. Lightly grease a 12-cup standard muffin tin or line with paper liners. If using liners, lightly grease them as well and set aside.

Step 2

Place all ingredients except the mix-ins in a blender. Blend or process on high.

Step 3

Stir the ingredients once or twice as needed, until the batter is smooth and the oats have broken down almost completely, about 3 minutes.

Step 4

Stir in the mix-ins. Add the chocolate chips after the blend cools down, chocolate chips may melt and swirl as they are stirred.

Step 5

Divide the batter between the 12 muffin cups, filling each no more than 3/4 of the way to the top.

Step 6

Sprinkle with additional chocolate chips or nuts as desired. Bake for 15 minutes, until the tops of the muffins set. You can test the donness by inserting a toothpick in the center, if done, it comes out clean.

Step 7

Place the pan on a wire rack and let the muffins cool for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and enjoy!
