Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

Tomorrow is back to school, so we have been baking and cooking to have breakfast and other meals ready to make the school week a little easier.  This is a muffin recipe that we make regularly and adapt it all the time to add different ingredients.  Here is what we usually do:

Image

In a large bowl add 1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour, 1 cup of rolled oats, 1/2 cup sugar, 2tsp baking powder, 1tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt.  I also add 2-3 tbsp of flax meal. Mix well.

Image

In another bowl whisk 2 eggs until frothy, 1/4 cup cooking oil, 1/4 cup milk, 3 medium overripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup and a bit).

Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients along with half a bag of chocolate chips.  Stir with a wooden spoon just until moistened.  Do not over mix (batter will be lumpy) or your muffins will be tough.

Image

Bake at 350F for about 18-20 minutes.

These freeze well also.  We wrapped some individually in clingwrap and then placed in a container, so we can pull them out as we need them for breakfast or lunchbox.
