Hearty Blueberry (or Chocolate Chip) Banana-Oatmeal Muffins

DSCN0360I love a moist, dense-but-still-fluffy, impossibly sweet, streusel topped, cream-cheese-frosting-drizzled muffin. But these are not that. Because sometimes you just want something simple and not too sweet to nibble on with your coffee.

DSCN0381Sweetened with just honey and made with oats and bananas these are a simple, hearty bite. I made half the batch with chocolate chips and half with blueberries, but you could easily do the whole batch with the same mix- ins.


½ cup Old Fashioned Oats
1 ½ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Zest of half a lemon
¼ cup honey
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 egg
1 cup mashed bananas
¼ skim milk
½  cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
½ cup chocolate chips

Mix together dry ingredients and make a well in center. In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Mix just until combined, batter will be thick and lumpy. Do not over mix. Separate batter evenly into two bowls. Add blueberries to one half and chocolate chips to the other half. Gently fold in just until combined. Spoon into lined muffin tins. Bake 17-20 minutes at 400 degrees.

Makes 12 muffins
