Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins {Recipes}

Standard

A while back, this recipe for Banana Chocolate Chips Oatmeal Cups arrived in my inbox. I had all of the ingredients on hand {which include ripe bananas, almond milk, eggs, baking powder, oats, vanilla and chocolate chips}; so I made them.

And fell in love.

Although I don’t normally bake, I’ve made them several times since. I’ve found that I can’t have baked goods in my house, because I have trouble with eating them in moderation. When I make these, I eat one warm, let the rest cool and then put them in a Ziplock bag to freeze. This works well because:

  1. They are out of sight and out of mind.
  2. When I want one, I have to take it out of the freezer and nuke it for minute.

I guess I could be putting them in the microwave one after the other; but for some reason, I don’t!

They aren’t as sweet as many muffins, so you can always add some sweetener, like a Tbsp of honey or something to make them sweeter. But I kind of like them like they are. Except, I just *might* add a little bit more chocolate chips to the mix! 😉

However, the last time I made them was after a night of very little sleep. I forgot the chocolate chips! DOH! No worries. I figured it out only about a minute after I put them in the oven. So I pulled them out and just topped the mixture with said chips. It worked okay. I definitely prefer the chips distributed throughout; but that’s okay!
055I like these so much and found them so easy that when a Foodie Penpal of mine said that she loved banana bread, I sent her some of the ingredients and the recipe to make them. Her only complaint? Now she needed to make them AGAIN! 😉

The last time I made these muffins, I had some extra overripe bananas and decided to give these Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies a try, too. They didn’t turn out as nice, but they tasted just fine. And pretty easy for only three ingredients {ripe bananas, oats, chocolate chips}!
