My husband really loves banana chocolate chip muffins. I like this recipe because it’s more hearty due to the oatmeal! I like the chewiness of oatmeal in muffins. 🙂  The chocolate chips are optional, of course!

Banana Oatmeal (Chocolate Chip) Muffins

1 cup oatmeal
1 cup milk
2 cups flour (white/wheat/spelt)
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup melted butter/margarine
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups banana, mushed (4-5 bananas)
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (optional)

Mix together oatmeal and milk.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Add melted butter, eggs, vanilla and bananas to the oatmeal and milk. Combine wet and dry ingredients, mixing only until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips, if desired. Spoon into greased/lined muffin tins.

Bake 20 minutes at 375F, or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.
