Ingredients

  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 bananas mashed, medium sized
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup yogurt I used Balkan style
  • 1/3 cup light oil any light tasting oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, mini reserve a few for the top of the muffins

Instructions

  • Place a rack in the centre of your oven and preheat oven to 425ºF.
  • Grease or line muffin pan with paper cups.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the oat flour, whole wheat flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the eggs and add the yogurt, oil, maple syrup, vanilla and mashed bananas.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until blended.
  • Add in the chocolate chips, mix until just combined. Don't over-mix the batter.
  • Evenly spoon the batter into the greased or paper-lined muffin cups.
  • Bake at 425ºF for 5 minutes and then lower the heat to 350ºF. Bake for an additional 12 to 14 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the muffins comes out clean.
  • Let the muffins cool in the pan on a rack for 5 minutes before removing them and placing onto a wire rack to cool.
  • Store the muffins in an airtight container up to 3 days. Muffins can also be frozen for up to 3 months.

Notes

1. Make your own oat flour by grinding small amounts in a coffee grinder and pulsing the oats until you have a texture that resembles coarse meal. You could also use a high powered blender. Add the oats to the container and blend until desired consistency.
2. As a healthier alternative, you could substitute the chocolate chips for chopped walnuts.
