Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Muffins

2 1/2 cups oat flour (can make it yourself by grinding oats in a high-powered blender)

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp milled flax seed

1 cup mini dark chocolate chips

5 ripe bananas

¼ cup oil (recommend coconut oil for the best taste ? will need to melt it to a liquid first)

1 tsp vanilla

2 eggs


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a loaf pan by spraying lightly with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, flax seed and chocolate chips and stir to mix. In a blender, combine banana, oil, vanilla and eggs and blend until smooth. Pour banana mixture into flour mixture and stir just until combined. Pour batter into lined muffin tins and cook 18-20 minutes.
