Banana White Chocolate Oat Muffins

If you follow me on Instagram then you know that when I have the time I like to cook and with all the time on our hands I need to keep Brayli entertained.  I found out quickly that she loves to ‘stir the food’ with a spoon so we’ve started with the simplest recipes that allows her to help!

We buy bananas every week, but for some reason last week we didn’t eat them. Of course they were super ripe and I didn’t want to waste them, so what did we decide to do—make Banana White Chocolate Oat Muffins!

Semi healthy and easy enough for the kid to help.

 

What you’ll need:

1 cup of rolled oats

1 1/2 cups of flour

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1/2 tsp of baking soda

1 1/2 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 eggs

1/4 cup of milk (I use 2% milk)

1/4 cup of oil (I use olive oil)

1 tsp of Vanilla extract

3 ripen bananas

3 handfuls of White Chocolate Chips

*No worries if you don’t have days old ripened bananas. Turn your oven on 300 degrees and place the banana in there. Flip it until it’s all black. There you have it–a ripened banana*

 

Recipe makes 1 dozen muffins. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all of your dry ingredients in a bowl and mix. Combine all of your wet ingredients in a bowl with the mashed bananas and mix. Combine both bowls and add White Chocolate Chips. Line muffin pan with cupcake liners or lightly oil the pans so that muffins easily slide out once done baking. Place batter in pan. Make sure not to fill the batter all the way to the top. Bake on 375 degrees for 15-18 minutes. Remove and let cool. Enjoy!

Brayli was able to participate in dumping the dry ingredients and mixing them. She was also very helpful in placing the batter into the pans. During these quarantine times it’s very important to me that she doesn’t get bored or ignored. This is one simple way that she feels included and finds fun in stirring the food!

  1. This recipe caught my eye and I scrolled through quick to see if I had all the ingredients. What is baking salt? I see you have salt on there, is it supposed to be baking soda? I think one reason so many people are baking banana things is because of the bananas getting old so fast.

  2. So I finally made these. I did read your suggestion for “making” bananas old, but nowadays I can’t do that. And bananas go fast so quick it didn’t take long for me to get some new old ones. 🙂 But . . . sadly, I did not have White chocolate. I thought I had. So I used what I had . . . mild chocolate. And . . . I didn’t want to end up with huge muffins so I thought I would make them in mini-muffin pans. Well, first of all I think the milk chocolate is ok, but I really thing the white chocolate was what made these sound so appealing and second of all . . . for some reason the minis are not as good as the full sized. I made both, thinking I would eat the minis and my husband would like the larger ones. Well, I had regular sized one and it was MUCH better than the mini. Anyway, they were yummy. Thanks!
