Servings: 12 muffins
Calories: 450kcal


  • 1 ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 ½ sticks) melted and cooled
  • 3 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 very ripe bananas mashed
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray or line it with cupcake liners.
  • Place the oats on a rimmed baking sheet and transfer it to the oven for 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Set aside to cool.
  • Combine the oats, flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl and stir to mix.
  • In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, buttermilk, and oil. Add the melted butter, lightly beaten eggs, and mashed bananas, and whisk to combine.
  • Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and use a spoon to stir just until all the dry ingredients are moist. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Spray a ⅓-cup dry measure with non-stick cooking spray.  Scoop out a heaping ⅓ cup of batter to fill each cup in your muffin pan.  You may need to spray the measuring cup with additional non-stick cooking spray in between scoops if the batter begins sticking.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown and the tops of the muffins spring back when touched. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  • Delicious served warm or cold.
