Healthy Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

382

I’m always looking for healthier ways to eat my favorite breakfast – muffins, and I think I’ve finally cracked the code with these super healthy oatmeal banana chocolate chip muffins. They are the moistest muffins I’ve ever made, and are mostly made of Oatmeal.

From a healthy food point of view, they have very little fat or sugars but in spite of that, they just melt in your mouth. I love making them whenever I have some overripe bananas on hand and loading them up with some jumbo chocolate chips. I’m not a huge fan of chocolate but when it comes to these muffins, biting into semi-solid chocolate chips along with bits of bananas is absolutely fantastic! Make sure to use KitchenAid’s muffin tins because they are really non-stick which makes cleanup so much easier, and gives you perfect muffins every time.
