Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Kohser Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Rainy days = comfort baking. These Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins are my ultimate comfort. My mother has been making these since I was a little girl. Growing up, she used boxed Pillsbury banana bread mix as the base, but when I moved to South Africa and didn't have that as an option, I played around and adapted them to be able to make them from 100% scratch. My whole family now uses my adapted version, and it's something we ALL love. I love now how the recipe is a joint effort between my mom and me. They taste like home. All of my childhood friends know these muffins. These muffins are the first thing I have baked in every home I have lived in, and my mini maidel loves them too. So, when I see totally brown bananas on my counter, I always know what's coming.
