Banana White Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

by Angie

For some reason I always buy too many bananas. Then I feel guilty when they start turning brown and I can’t talk anyone into eating them. I like the occasional banana with peanut butter, but not every day. So, anyway, there were these mostly brown bananas sitting on my counter and I knew I had banana bread and plain bananas in the freezer already, so I starting looking around on Pinterest for something to do with them. This is what I found:

 

The problem was that I didn’t have any wheat flour or applesauce in the house, and I was really more interested in using up what I had lying around that being uber-healthy about it . . . so I changed the recipe. If you want the healthy original click on the Pinterest link, but here is what I ended up doing:

 

3 large ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients well.
Spray mini-muffin tin with non-stick spray.
Fill each tin completely full.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Yield: 24 overflowing mini-muffins (and we all know anything “mini” has so few calories they’re hardly worth counting, right?
I may or may not have scarfed down all five of these muffins right after I took the picture.

Oh, and here’s my favorite mini-muffin pan:

These sound wonderful! I never have a bananna leftover. If they are here they go into something even if it’s a milkshake. I have to do better and get some in the freezer.

Dang…those look scrumpt.

I have been on Pinterest, but I don’t think enough to actually know what I’m doing. And I think I’m the only soul NOT doing Pinterest.

I’m gonna see about changing that.

But seriously, you did a bang up job on muffins!

You could probably have subbed yogurt for the applesauce too if you wanted to stay on the healthy train.

Thanks for linking up at A Little Nosh this week!

Oh my goodness, yum!! I’m kind of addicted to bananas, but I won’t eat them after they get very ripe. These look delicious!

Hello!

Can you freeze these once they are baked?

Thanks!

Absolutely! Just make sure and get as much air out of the bag as possible, and maybe even wrap them individually or in small groups in waxed paper before freezing to prevent freezer burn.
