Banana, Oatmeal and Greek Yogurt Muffins
This recipe came to me on the fly even thought there are so many different versions of this recipe in Internet.
I always have bananas at home because they are good source of potassium, magnesium and vitamin B. It is a very good snack and helps to overcome the hunger when I do not have my lunch or dinner on time. Everybody in my family also likes banana bread and muffins and I have many different recipes for making these delicious morning treats. I had three medium size overripe bananas to dispose of and yogurt so I decided to combine these two ingredients and also add oatmeal and different toppings. My family really loved it and it did not take a long time until these muffins were all gone! Oh, I must be a really good cook!
For 9-10 large muffins you will need:
• 3 medium ripe bananas
• 2 tablespoons melted butter
• 2 eggs
• 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt
• 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
• 1/2 cup vegetable oil
• 1 1/2 cup wheat flour
• 1 1/2 cup quick oatmeal
• 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
• 2 tablespoons coarse sugar
• 2 tablespoons white chocolate chips
• 2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips

Add eggs then yogurt, melted butter and vanilla and continue beating it on medium speed.
In separate bowl mix your dry ingredients: flour, oatmeal, baking powder and baking soda.

and top with your favorite toppings.
