Recipe: Banana Chocolate Chips Oatmeal Muffins

Monday, June 1, 2015

This is a slightly modified version of Banana Chocolate Chips Muffins, the first thing I ever bake taught by my the talented baker friend, Bertha. I replaced some flour with oatmeal since I love the chewy oatmeal texture in a muffin.

This is also a great simple recipe to work on with kids. My 6 and 3 years old can bake this with only a little help for me.

Didi was working on the mixture a while Koko was working on mixture b.

Combine both mixture in a big mixing bowl

Stir to combine all the ingredients:

Place baking paper on the muffin pan:

Scoop the batter, divide among the cups and bake in oven

about 20 minutes later: Voila....
