Serves: 12 muffins
Ingredients
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅔ cup old-fashioned oatmeal (not instant)
  • ¾ cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 very ripe large bananas, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅔ cup Nutella
  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips (I threw 'em in because I had some)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, oats, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl combine the mashed bananas, eggs, Nutella, melted butter, and vanilla. With a rubber spatula, lightly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until combined and the batter is thick and chunky. (The important thing is not to over mix the batter). Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Scrape batter into prepared muffin tin. Bake until muffins are golden brown and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes (25 minutes for jumbo muffins). Yields 12 regular muffins or 8 jumbo muffins.
