There’s no shortage of sweets around the holidays! These Cherry Chocolate Oatmeal Muffins are no exception, but a few swaps make these tasty treats a bit healthier for you. Enjoy the recipe below.
2 cups old fashioned oats, divided
3 large overripe bananas (about one cup mashed)
1/3 cup Superior Selections Honey
¾ cup milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
3 ½ tbsp cocoa powder
1 cup chocolate chips, divided
1 cup Superior Selections Dried Cherries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place muffin liners in muffin pan. Set aside.
In a food processor or blender, blend 1 ½ cups of oats until they reach flour-like consistency.
In a large bowl, mash bananas. Slightly beat eggs and add them to the bananas along with honey, milk and vanilla; mix until smooth. Add oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder to banana mixture. Mix until combined.
Fold in ½ cup chocolate chips and all of the cherries. Pour completed mixture into muffin cups until almost full (about 14-16 muffins). Top muffin mixture with remainder of the chocolate chips and oats before baking.
Bake about 21-23 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
