These Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins bake up so soft and puffy! There's no oil or butter so they are the perfect light snack or breakfast on the go.
Although January is full of resolutions and healthy eating, my taste buds and brain don't seem to agree. I try my darnest to eat healthy and do a pretty good job of it. But there's always room for setting yourself up for success by making a batch of healthy muffins on the weekend to grab on the go or for a mid-afternoon snack.
It's a recipe you would never know is healthy. It's flavorful, sweet and the edges turn a gorgeous golden brown color. They rise beautifully in the oven and are the perfect amount of springy and chewy you find in a bakery style muffin.
It's a dump everything in the bowl kind of recipe. So easy, so delicious and so healthy. My kind of recipe.
I was throwing all of the ingredients together and didn't feel 100% convinced these were going to turn out. I scooped a tiny bite of the batter and immediately impressed myself.
The majority of the sweetness comes from the banana and sugar free maple syrup. There is a tiny bit of brown sugar in this recipe, but it's only ¼ cup in the whole batch!
