Ingredients

cooking spray

5 spray(s)

Vanilla lowfat Greek yogurt

cup(s)

low-fat milk

cup(s), (1%)

egg(s)

1 large

uncooked quick oats

½ cup(s)

packed brown sugar

cup(s)

banana(s)

1 large, ripe, mashed

vanilla extract

1½ tsp

all-purpose flour

½ cup(s)

whole wheat flour

cup(s)

baking powder

1¼ tsp

baking soda

½ tsp

table salt

½ tsp

mini chocolate chips

½ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Coat 36 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 18 minutes.
  5. Serving size: 1 muffin

Notes

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