Treat Tuesday #25...

Treat Tuesday -
Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins

*I normally love to post wonderfully rich, fattening, and delicious treats.

*With the start of a New Year, I know people are looking for healthy options.

*My wife makes an awesome Chocolate Chip Banana Muffin.

*This is a "twist" on that with a bit of a healthy twist... 

  • 1 & 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt (optional)
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt (could use greek)
  • 2 medium sized ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (gave or take on your preference - I used minis)

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and brown sugar, set aside.
  3. In a food processor (or blender/mixer) combine yogurt, bananas, melted butter, peanut butter, milk, egg and vanilla until very well blended. Mixture will be fairly thick.
  4. Combine the wet with the dry ingredients, stir until combined but do not over mix.
  5. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop batter into a greased muffin tin (regular size or mini).
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes for minis and 18-22 minutes for regular sized or until a toothpick comes out clean.
