Mrs G makes these all the time and I am lucky enough to get some...so I tried to make them...
Her's are waaaay better. Mine puffed up huge, they were still tasty, but her's are nice and dense. I am not sure what I did vs what she does.
I totally recommend this recipe though.
I made them in my toaster oven so I didn't heat the entire house up.

Yields: 12 muffins
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups rolled oats (old fashioned or quick)
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1½ tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- ½ cup chocolate chips, mini or regular
- Preheat oven to 400F and prepare a muffin pan by spraying cavities with cooking spray or lining them with paper liners**. Set aside.
- Add all ingredients except for chocolate chips to a blender or food processor and process on high until oats are broken down and batter is smooth and creamy. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
- Pour batter into prepared muffin pan, filling each cavity until it is about ¾ full. Optional: sprinkle a few chocolate chips over the top of each muffin.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the tops of your muffins are set and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Allow muffins to cool in pan for ~10 minutes before removing. Store in an air-tight container for up to a week.
** If using paper liners, you'll want to spray them with cooking spray as well, since the lack of oil in these muffins could make them stick to the liners after baking.
