I absolutely love bananas, but when I buy them I always seem to have a few that get a little too ripe for my liking. One day I decided to find a recipe that could utilize these bananas that I would normally throw away and create a healthy treat that could also satisfy my sweet tooth. These oatmeal cups are so easy to make and I almost always have the ingredients on hand, so I never have to have those pesky late night grocery store runs if I get the urge to make them. These are perfect for an on the go breakfast or an anytime snack. Enjoy!
3 mashed bananas( the more ripe the better because they will add more sweetness)
1 Teaspoon honey (depending on the ripeness of your bananas, you may or may not need the honey)
1 Cup of fat free milk (any kind will work)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
3 Cups old fashioned or rolled oats
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 Cup natural peanut butter
1/4 chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
Mix all ingredients together except for the chocolate chips and let rest while you prepare the muffin pans.
Spray a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Fold the chocolate chips into the muffin batter and divide the batter evenly into the muffin cups.
Cook for 20-30 minutes until firm and the edges start to brown.
