These little nuggets are a great way to start the day or to munch on as an afternoon snack. I’m going to give you guys the full recipe and include some healthier options to sub in for the not as healthy ones. 🙂 Pair one of these guys with a coffee and you’ll be ready to roll!!
-1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
-1 cup rolled oats (I like the gluten free Trader Joes brand)
-1/2 cup of white sugar (or splenda)
-2 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp baking soda
-1/2 tsp salt
-1 egg (or 2 egg whites)
-3/4 cup milk (skim is good!)
-1/3 cup of vegetable oil (or 1/3 cup of applesauce)
-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
-1 cup of mashed banana (or add a little more for kick)
-Chocolate chips – however many you’d like to add (totes optional!)
Preheat the oven to 400. Combine the oats, sugar, powder, flour and salt in a bowl and set aside. In a mixing bowl, blend together eggs, milk, oil, vanilla and then add the mashed banana. Once those are blended together, add in the dry ingredients. Mix in chocolate chips last if you’re adding those in. 🙂 Line a muffin tin or spray well and bake at 400 for 20ish minutes or until they just start to brown a bit.
