Carob Chip Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Hey My Sparkling Rays of Sunshine!

If you have some overly ripened bananas on your counter, come with me and let’s makes some delights! 😀


My Carob Chip Banana Oatmeal Muffins!


In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the flour, flax, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.


Set aside.


Peel the bananas.


Mash them until they are all “puree-like.”


(If using peeled frozen bananas, microwave them for 60 seconds and mash with a fork the same.)


Make a well in the middle of the oatmeal mixture.


Add the vanilla and mashed bananas.


Stir to combine.


Fold in the carob chips.


Scoop the batter into lined muffin tins.


Bake them in a preheated 325*F (180 degree C) oven for about 20-30 minutes to develop all of those lovely flavors.


Allow them cool in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack. Store in a zipbloc bag in the fridge and/or freezer for later snackage.

    • Hey Sheree! You are so welcome! Carob is definitely a favorite in my house! My body is really sensitive to caffeine, so eating chocolate in the evening isn’t always the best choice for me, but I can have a little carob without those effects. And it’s delicious too. 😀
