Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup banana 1 ripe medium banana mashed well
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar or honey I used honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon oat flour (using GF oats)
  • 1/3 cup old fashioned GF oats
  • 1/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips {I used Nestle minis}
  • Optional: Add sprinkles of mini chocolate chips on top!

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray your mini muffin pan with nonstick spray. Do not use muffin liners.
  • In a large bowl, using mixer, combine together the mashed banana, peanut butter, agave or honey, vanilla extract, and brown sugar and beat until combined.
  • Add egg and beat into mixture.
  • Beat in the salt, baking soda, baking powder, and oat flour. Do not over-mix or muffins will be become dense and lose flavor.
  • Fold in the old-fashioned GF oats and the mini chocolate chips until just mixed.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, scoop 1 full scoop of the muffin mixture into each muffin cavity.
  • If you want larger muffins, this recipe will make 7-8 muffins.
  • Bake mini muffins at 350 for 7-8 minutes (125-150 calories). Larger muffins 15-18 minutes (227-244 calories).  
  • Slightly under-baking the muffins makes them taste lighter and moister!
  • If you don't prefer them that way, bake them a little longer, they will still taste good.:)

Notes

You can substitute regular old fashioned oats, but if you do, the recipe won't be gluten-free then.
If you don't have oat flour, you can process your own oat flour, by taking oats and pulsing them in a blender/food processor until they are a flour like consistency. Be sure to measure the oat flour after pulsing or the amounts will be off.
