What do you do when your bananas are perfectly ripe? Right, you make banana bread. Or even better you make banana oat muffins. I’ve been making this recipe for years and me and my friends love it! Since ripe bananas are already naturally sweet these don’t require much added sweetener. I used coconut sugar to keep them relatively healthy and dark chocolate to keep the total sugar content low, while still adding some little bits of chocolate. I hope you love them as much as we do!
Banana oat muffins
- 280 g oats
- 3 very ripe bananas
- 300 ml rice milk
- 100 g dark chocolate
- 50 g coconut sugar
- 3 tbs chia seeds soaked in about 80 ml water for 10-15 min
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp salt
- Step 1 Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
- Step 2 Mix your chia seeds with the water and put away to let them soak up the liquid. Stir from time to time.
- Step 3 Combine the oats, coconut sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in bowl. Mash up the bananas with a fork and add to your dry ingredients along with the rice milk and the chia “eggs”. Mix until very well combined. If your using a bar of chocolate, chop it into chocolate chips and stir into your muffin batter.
- Step 4 Line or grease a muffin tin for twelve muffins and distribute the batter evenly between the moulds.
- Step 5 Bake for about 20 to 25 min.
- Step 6 Let them cool on a baking rack. If you remove them while still warm they might stick to the mould!
