Flourless Banana Muffins
I'm not much of a breakfast person, but I feel so much more energized and focused when I eat before my coffee or tea. This recipe is a lifesaver for those times when I'm not in the mood for my typical boiled eggs, yogurt, or almond butter on toast.
If you want to go healthier than the dark chocolate chips, you could try walnuts and banana chunks or pumpkin puree and spices.
Why these muffins are dietitian approved:
Bananas and yogurt provide moisture and are a tasty and healthy fat substitute.
They're whole grain and only use oats.
Dark chocolate chips- enough said.
1 cup plain fat free Greek yogurt
2 cups old fashioned oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Mini dark chocolate chips to sprinkle on top
1) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and spray your muffin pan with oil
2) Add oats to a food processor and process until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and mix on high until the batter is smooth and creamy.
3) Fill each muffin hole 3/4 with batter and top with a few chocolate chips. Bake about 15 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean.
