Ingredients

Cooking spray

5 spray(s)

Plain lowfat yogurt

cup(s)

Low-fat milk

cup(s)

Whole wheat flour

cup(s)

Packed brown sugar

cup(s)

Uncooked quick oats

½ cup(s)

Vanilla extract

1½ tsp(s)

Raw egg(s)

1 large, beaten

Banana(s)

1 large, mashed

All-purpose flour

½ cup(s)

Baking powder

1¼ tsp(s)

Baking soda

½ tsp(s)

Table salt

½ tsp(s)

Mini chocolate chips

½ cup(s), divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat 24 mini muffin holes with cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine yogurt, milk, oats, vanilla extract and egg; set aside 5 minutes for oats to soften and then stir in banana.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir flour mixture into yogurt mixture to moisten ingredients (do not beat - the dough will be very thick). Reserve 1 tablespoon chips; stir in remaining chips.
  4. Spoon batter by heaping tablespoons into prepared muffin holes; sprinkle each with a few reserved chocolate chips. Bake until golden brown and a tester inserted in center of a muffin comes out clean, about 15 to 17 minutes. Yields 1 muffin per serving.
  5. Yields 1 muffin per serving.

Notes

Reserve a few oats to sprinkle on top of batter in pan just before baking if desired.
