Cuisine: American
Diet: Diabetic, Gluten Free, Vegetarian
Servings: 18 muffins
Carbohydrates: 19g

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups quick oats use gluten free if needed or 2 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 8 oz. milk of choice
  • 1 large banana
  • 5 oz. raw baby spinach
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Using a food processor or grinder, grind the quick oats into oat flour.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the ground oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir to combine.
  • Add the remaining ingredients (except chocolate chips) to a high powered blender, and blend until a smooth green liquid forms. Add the liquid to the mixing bowl with the oat mixture and stir using a rubber spatula, just until combined. Add the chocolate chips in and stir again.
  • Pour the batter into silicone lined muffin tins* and bake for 20-22 minutes.
  • Remove the pans from the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes. Remove the silicone liners from the muffin tin and let them cool on a wire rack for 10ish minutes. Carefully, remove each muffin from the silicone liners by giving them a gentle squeeze and/or peeling the liners back away from the muffins. Let the muffins finish cooling completely on the wire rack. Enjoy!

Notes

*Baking with oats can be tricky, and I only recommend using a silicone pan or silicone liners. You can find a number of options on Amazon, like these (affiliate link). If you only grease a standard muffin tin or use paper liners, you run the risk of the muffins sticking to the paper or pan.
