Oreo Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Oreo Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk, or yogurt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 very ripe bananas, mashed with a fork
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
12 Oreo cookies, chopped

Preheat your oven to 400F, and like a muffin pan with 12 paper liners.

Combine flour sugar, baking powder in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine the egg, buttermilk, vegetable oil, vanilla, and mashed banana. Once combined add to the dry. Only mix until just combined.

Add the mini chocolate chips and oreos, fold gently into the batter. You don’t want to over mix with the oreos, or your muffins will get a gray appearance.

Spoon batter into the prepared muffin pan.

Bake 17-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool 5-10 minutes in the muffin pan, and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

*** These muffins freeze beautifully for make-ahead moments!

My Basic Granola Recipe

My Basic Granola Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup of a sweetener (maple syrup, sugar, brown sugar, honey, or a combo)
1/2 cup of a neutral oil (avocado, vegetable, coconut, or canola)
1/2 t salt
2 cups of chopped nuts
5 cups of whole oats

(Optional) 2 teaspoons of vanilla and/or 2 teaspoons of cinnamon

(Optional add-ins) chia seeds, ground flax, hemp hearts, and/or sunflower seeds

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat your oven to 325F.

Combine the sweetner(s), oil, salt, and vanilla/cinnamon in a bowl. Add the chopped nuts and mix. Add the oats and thoroughly mix until everything is combined (takes a couple minutes).

Spread the granola mix onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment. Using the back of a spatula press the mixture firmly, this helps create big granola chunks after. Bake the granola 40-45 minutes. Let cool completely, and then break up into pieces. Store in an air tight container.

NOTE: I do like to add dried fruit but I prefer to mix them in with the granola after it bakes and cools. I find the dried fruit gets too hard if baked with the granola.
