Keyword: banana oatmeal muffin
Servings: 12 serves
- 3 banana
- ¼ cup peanut butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon dairy-free milk
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup chocolate chips
- 3 tablespoon chocolate chips for sprinkling on top
- 2 tablespoon oat flakes for sprinkling on top
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175C).
Place bananas in a large bowl and mash.
To the mashed bananas add in the eggs, maple syrup, peanut butter, vanilla extract and milk and stir well to combine.
Add in the oat flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Using a spatula, carefully mix until the batter is just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
Add the chocolate chips to the mixture and stir to combine.
Either use a nonstick spray to spray a 12-count muffin or use cupcake liners.
Divide the batter equally among muffin liners. Sprinkle chocolate chips and oat flakes onto each muffin.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes out clean, with just a few crumbs attached.
Remove from the oven, and allow the muffins to cool for 5 minutes in the muffin tray, before transferring to a wire cooling rack and allowing to cool completely.
If you don't have the above ingredients on hand, you can always make some substitutions.
Peanut butter can be exchanged for any other nut-butter or seed-butter. I have tried these with almond butter and also with sunflower seed butter and they worked just perfectly.
Eggs can be substituted with chia eggs instead.
To make one chia egg, simply combine 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and 2.5 tablespoon of filtered water and allow to sit for 5 minutes, until it becomes a gel-like consistency.
Maple Syrup can be swapped out for some honey or rice malt syrup.
Dairy-free milk can be swapped for your milk of choice.
Oat Flour can be swapped for regular plain flour.
