Banana Oatmeal Chip Muffins

These are probably my favorite muffins. Or at the very least one of my favorites. And they are healthy too! I found the recipe a few years ago in one of those cooking magazines. This recipe makes one dozen muffins.


1 cup quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 medium, ripe bananas, mashed
1 egg
2 Tbsp. applesauce
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a medium bowl, combine oats, flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar. Beat in bananas, egg, applesauce, and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chips.

Line muffin cups; fill 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire rack. Best served warm.
