In my flurry of cooking last weekend, I made some awesome mini muffins to snack on all week. I know that I’m never really going to get over my sugar cravings in this lifetime, so I figured it was time to find a way to indulge in a healthier manner. This was the perfect balance.
The recipe I used is here, with the following changes:
- I didn’t have quick oats, so I chopped up whole oats in a food processor before starting
- I forgot to buy vanilla yogurt so I used the plain Greek yogurt I had around, along with an extra tsp of vanilla and a tbsp of brown sugar to balance it out, overall
- Mini chocolate chips are amazing and I ate many of them. That’s all.
- I think this could have stood to have another banana added. It didn’t have a lot of banana influence, if you ask me.
This made 45 mini muffins, though it was supposed to make only 36 – maybe I let it sit too long as I used my one muffin pan or maybe I wasn’t filling them enough, but I don’t really mind either way. More to share! They are not super sweet, but they’re tasty, healthy (>1 pointplus each!) and easy to make – win!
