Oatmeal Banana Muffins

These are a must try! Do I say that about all the recipes I post on here? Anyways these are a perfect breakfast muffin. There is no white flour or sugar in these which is great. The chocolate chips adds the perfect amount of sweetness. I have eaten one of these for breakfast the past few mornings and I am telling you they are delicious! Heat them up in the microwave for 20 seconds and the chocolate will be a little melted and perfect. But please don't take my word for it, go make them and eat them up.
You'll need
5 cups oatmeal
2 cups ripe bananas
1 tsp salt
5 tbsp liquid sweetener (honey, pure maple syrup) 
1 cup water
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cups chocolate chips
1/3 cups walnuts

1. Preheat oven to 380 degrees F. 2. Mix all wet ingredients well. Then gradually add dry ingredients until everything is mixed. 3. Place dough in cupcake/muffin baking cups inside a muffin tin. 4. Bake for about 17 minutes. 5. Makes about 15-17 muffins. 

Add ons: You can add cinnamon. Shredded coconut. Blueberries. If you would like instead of chocolate chips or nuts.

I added blueberries to some of the muffins instead of chocolate chips at my mom request. They weren't my favorite, I much prefer the chocolate chip ones for sure. But my mom really liked them so that is an option too! Enjoy.
