Banana Oatmeal Muffins

2 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup milk
2-3 mashed bananas
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup oats
1/2 cup sugar (either works)
2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 - 1 cup chocolate chips

Blend wet ingredients together til smooth. Add dry ingredients all at once and stir just til incorporated. Makes 12-18 muffins (depends on how big you like your muffins) Bake at 350 for 20 - 25 minutes. Check with a toothpick.

Alix, thanks for sharing this recipe. I have been wanting to make banana bread, but now I will make this recipe instead.

Oh my goodness ... that's all I can say.

These muffins are delicious! I kept the oil but substituted walnuts for the chocolate chips (DH isn't a fan of chocolate in breads). They are moist with a bit of chew from the oatmeal. Yum Yum Yum!

Thank you again Alix for sharing!

Wow. I should have posted these long ago. I just didn't think many folks liked banana muffins. Thought most people preferred banana bread. YAY! I'm happy to have pleased people.

This looks easy and healthy. Thanks! Do you know the fat / calorie contents? Assuming I can just use normal old-fashioned oats right? Can I use whole-wheat flour?

While we really like banana bread (all breads really), they are harder to pack for lunches or snacks. Throwing a muffin into a lunch bag is much easier and they tend to get eaten. Plus, it's nice to "mix it up" a little.

Thanks again!


Saraaaaa (did I get enough a's ... ?), I used plain old Quaker Oats, not the quick cooking. You can figure the fat / calorie count by adding up the numbers for all the ingredients and dividing by the number of muffins you get (I got 17). I know you can factor in the fiber somehow when you do the calories but I'm not exactly sure how you do that ...
