Oatmeal is good for you, even in these Oatmeal, Banana & Chocolate Chip Muffins!
These are my favourite muffins of all time. Totally not kidding. I’ve been making them for years. I freeze them individually so I can pull one out when a quick breakfast or emergency treat is needed. They are moist, mostly good-for you, and perfect every time.
I know adding the butter is completely over-kill, but I couldn’t resist. Can you?
