Banana Oat Breakfast Muffins

Since I seem to be on a muffin kick (when am I not?!), here is another flourless through-it-all-in-the-blender-and-pour recipe.  I'd like to try making the batter the night before and keeping it in the fridge until the morning to see how that would work.  The muffins are dense, but worked well as a breakfast for my gingersnaps.  Instead of putting the chocolate chips in the batter, I just sprinkled three or four on each muffin cup once they were full.  The appearance of something having a lot of chocolate chips in it goes a long way for my kiddos, when three or four per muffin was enough to satisfy.

1 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 ripe bananas
2 eggs
2 cups rolled oats (old fashioned or quick)
¼ cup brown sugar
1½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ cup chocolate chips, mini or regular (optional)

Preheat oven to 400F and prepare a muffin pan by spraying cavities with cooking spray. Set aside.

Add all ingredients except for chocolate chips to a blender or food processor and process on high until oats are broken down and batter is smooth and creamy. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.

Pour batter into prepared muffin pan, filling each cavity until it is about ¾ full. Optional: sprinkle a few chocolate chips over the top of each muffin.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the tops of your muffins are set and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Allow muffins to cool in pan for ~10 minutes before removing. Store in an air-tight container for up to a week.
