Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Muffins

Muffins are always a great thing to have around the house. They are perfect for quick breakfasts and afternoon snacks. And now, thanks to Fleischmann’s® Simply Homemade® Muffin and Bread Mix made specially for Greek yogurt, they also pack a boost of protein and whole grains. I used their new banana mix to make these Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Muffins, and the family gobbled them up.

When the nice people at Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade contacted me and asked me to check out their new line of baking mixes, I was pretty intrigued. I do a lot of cooking with Greek yogurt and always have it in the fridge. I love swapping it out for mayonnaise in dips and dressings because of the added protein and was so excited to see a new baking product that I could use it in.

The mixes come in three different flavors: raspberry, lemon poppyseed and banana. They are made with simple ingredients like real fruit and juices and don’t contain any artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. And they are super easy to make.

Baking Mixes

For this recipe, I decided to use the banana mix. I chose this flavor because banana bread and muffins are always a huge hit in our house. I generally make them from scratch, so I was curious how a mix would go over. I kind of thought that, like some other mixes I have tried, the muffins would come out to be dry and less flavorful.

I was so wrong.

They came out just right – moist and oh so delicious. I used a single serve vanilla Greek yogurt, because I wanted the extra vanilla flavor, but you can also use 2/3 cup of plain yogurt. The product also lends itself to all kinds of mix-ins. You could easily toss in nuts or dried fruits. I chose to use chocolate chips, because really, chocolate and banana is one of my all time favorite combinations.

The whole family loved these Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Muffins. I kid you not. Kellan ate two every morning until they were gone. Growing boys. What am I going to do when they are teenagers?!
