After baking rhubarb-walnut, blueberry, and chocolate chip muffins, I thought it was about time I try to make some "healthier" muffins. By healthier, I mean muffins that have some nutritious benefits and that I would feel less ashamed to eat before doing sports :-D
I found a nice recipe which I adapted a bit to include bananas, oats, chocolate chips and cinnamon... and not much sugar nor butter (and no cream). Mix dry and wet ingredients separately before combining with chocolate chips and bake approx. 18 min. In almost 30 min you can have your muffin and eat it warm! Try them, they're great anytime of the day!
Recipe for 12 oatmeal-banana-chocolate chip muffins
3-4 ripe bananas
1.2 dl brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
80 g butter, melted
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 pinch of salt
2.4 dl flour
1.25 dl rolled oats + some more for coating
1.25 dl chopped chocolate
Mash bananas in a bowl, add sugar and the egg, whip up a bit. Add butter and mix. In a separate bowl mix flour, oats and dry ingredients. Add them to the wet mix and make a dough. Incorporate chocolate chips last. Divide the dough into 12 muffin forms / cups and sprinkle some oats on top. Bake 18-20 min at 180 C.
