Our King Soopers has started carrying a lot more organic produce, which is great! They’ve also started selling very ripe organic bananas at a reduced price, which just begs for banana bread!

I wanted to do muffins, since it’s the last week of school and Monkey might need something she can take on the go.

Here’s what I did:

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats (not quick oats)
1/2 cup white sugar or Stevia to taste (About 1/4 cup should do it)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil or applesauce
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3-4 large ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

In a mixer, beat together egg, milk, applesauce, vanilla and bananas.

Slowly add combined dry ingredients until blended.  Stir in mini chocolate chips, if desired.

Use a large scoop to evenly scoop into sprayed two muffin tins, making 24 muffins. You may also use liners.

Bake at 400 degrees for 18-23 minutes.

These were so easy, and the kids loved them.

If you try them, let me know what changes you made (if any) and how they turned out!
