Recipe Review: Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I have a friend, Becca, who makes me yummy things to eat. When we're together, I can always count on a cookie, a cake, or a muffin to make an appearance - oh and chocolate chips pancakes and chewy bacon.

I am a lucky girl.

This past visit, I remembered to ask for (and did not lose) the recipe for these fabulous little muffins that I woke up to one morning. Becca kindly agreed to let me share this recipe with you because everyone needs a little chocolate banana goodness in their lives.  She's all about helping.

Becca's Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

- 3 large very ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/3 cup natural applesauce
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 1/2 tsps. baking powder
- 1 cup AP flour (or 1/2 AP, 1/2 whole wheat)
- 1/2 cup Oatmeal
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips

Mash bananas in a large bowl. Add sugar and mix until well blended. Add in the egg and applesauce and beat together.
Without stirring, add the dry ingredients to the bowl. Once they are added, stir the dry ingredients a bit, then incorporate into the wet ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Spoon into well greased medium sized muffin tins or tins lined with liners.
Bake for 20-25 minutes @ 350 degrees.
*if you can resist the temptation, let them cool completely before eating. Otherwise, they tend to stick to the liners - unless you like licking muffin liners and well then... have fun!

this is about as pretty as my food pictures will ever get
 I made 24 on Thursday. Today is Saturday and there are 5 left. Based on that information, I'll let you be the judge of whether or not they are tasty.
