I just had a great weekend. It didn’t involve much of anything except relaxing and hanging out with the boy, but it was awesome. Lots of laughing. But also lots of eating and drinking. I decided I need to prep some food for the week to help me “reset” myself. And I like to reset with chocolate chips. So sue me.
I found this recipe and thought it looked decent. I was curious. No flour? No sugar? Okay, you have me interested. I wasn’t expecting much, to be honest. I used my Magic Bullet-type blender to grind the oats and it worked awesome. The main changes I made to the original recipe were:
-Mixed all of the dry ingredients together and then added them blended wet ingredients.
-Ground the oatmeal in the mixer and then used the other blade to mix the wet ingredients.
-Decreased the honey to 2 tablespoons.
-Added 1 teaspoon cinnamon to the dry ingredients.
-Added one additional diced banana and about 6 ounces chocolate chips to the mixed batter.
-Garnished the muffins with a slice of banana and sprinkle of oats before baking.
I ran the numbers and these have about 150 calories per muffin. So I did what any sane person would do and pounded five muffins before I could take a breath. They are all kinds of delicious. And yummy.
Make these and then eat five in a row so I feel better about myself.
