A delicious Chocolate Chip Muffin recipe packed full of healthy ingredients like oats, greek yogurt and bananas. Perfect for an afternoon snack for kids or to add to their lunch box!


Ingredients

  • 200g / 1.5 cups plain or all purpose flour (can be gluten free)
  • 50g / 0.5 cups rolled oats
  • 150g / 0.5 cups plain greek yogurt
  • 50g / 0.3 cups coconut oil or butter, melted
  • 1 medium banana, chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 0.5 tsp baking soda or bicarbonate of soda
  • 75g / 0.5 cup milk or dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180c / 350f.
  2. Add all of the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, to a food processor and blitz until well combined.
  3. Add the chocolate chips and stir by hand with a spoon.
  4. Line a 12 hold muffin tray with 12 silicone cases and then using an ice cream scoop, fill each of the cases 3/4 full with the muffin mixture.
  5. Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes. A skewer inserted into the middle should come out clean.
  6. Once the muffins are cool enough to touch, transfer them onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

These muffins can be kept in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. They can also be frozen (freeze them individually and then transfer to a freezer bag or container) and defrosted at room temperature.
