Who doesn’t love a healthy grab-n-go breakfast?

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins
Ingredients (for 24 muffins):
5 cups gluten-free rolled oats (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
2 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas
5 Tbsp. honey or maple syrup
2 1/3 cup water
5 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375º F. Line 24 muffin cups with silicone liners.
In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, salt and mini chocolate chips. In a separate bowl whisk together mashed banana, sweetener, water, oil and vanilla. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients, combine thoroughly. Divide evenly into muffin cups. These don’t rise so a heaping 1/4 cup of batter is enough to fill the muffin cup without running over.
Bake for 20 minutes, rotating pans 180º after 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on wire racks. Freeze in airtight container or plastic freezer bags.
