the easiest and yummiest banana, oat and greek yogurt muffins
Thursday, March 19, 2015
So I have the bad habit of mindlessly thumbing through Pinterest, pinning all of these delicious-looking recipes but then never giving them a second glance! So I have set out to change my ways. I now pin yummy recipes to my "Yummies Board" and when I try them and find they are a success, they get pinned to my private board called "tried and loved recipes," (not really sure why it's private? I will probably change that because there is no need!). My latest success story was inspired by these Banana Oat Muffins. I tweaked the recipe just a bit and they are a huge hit in my house. Recipe below. Hope you like it!
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups rolled oats (I used old fashioned but you can use quick too)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar (I used a touch less, maybe 1/8 cup, just because I was running out and they turned out perfect!)
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (I used Trader Joe's and didn't measure these at all. I used half a bag)
Preheat oven to 400. Grease or line muffin tin (if you use liners you still want to spray the liners because there is no oil in these muffins so it could cause them to stick). Throw everything except the chocolate chips into a blender or food processor (I used my Vitamix) and blend until the oats are smooth. Add chocolate chips and mix with spoon. Pour batter into muffin tins, leaving each one about 3/4 full. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are brown. Georgia gobbled them up with some blueberries for snack yesterday and had one for breakfast with some yogurt this morning. And the hubs can grab one (or 3!) on the way out of the door.
