Sometimes you need something good and easy in life, especially in the mornings when it’s hard to wake up. At least, I know a big old cup of coffee isn’t enough for me. You should have breakfast, but you’re too tired, lazy or your timetable doesn’t allow you to actually make anything.

Banana Oat Muffins (with dark chocolate and peanutbutter)
A delicious and (mostly) healthy way to start your day! If you want these muffins to be even MORE healthy, you can leave the chocolate chunks out. The question is; do you really want to..?
- 2 nice and ripe bananas
- 100 gr peanut butter
- 1/3 cup crushed dark chocolate (pref. 72% cacao or higher)
- 2 1/2 cups of rolled oats
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tbsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup of milk
Preheat your oven to a 180°C (350°F). Grab a muffin tray and fill it up with muffin papers/silicone shapes.
Add the 2 bananas to a big mixing bowl and mush them with a fork.
Add the peanut butter, honey, egg, baking soda and milk to the bowl and mix until everything is well combined.
Add the rolled oats and 2/3 of the dark chocolate chunks to the mixture and mix until everything is evenly spread and well combined.
Fill up your muffin molds for about 2/3 of the shapes your using, they will rise so they need some room to grow! Don't we all? 🙂
When you are done, spread some chocolate chunks on top of the batter and gently push them into the batter a little, but still just sticking out.
Once your oven is preheated, slide the muffins in the oven and let them bake for 30 minutes.
Enjoy these little wonders in the morning and be sure to contain yourself not to eat them all at once!
