This recipe only requires one large bowl, let's get to it!
Mash the bananas in a large bowl, then add the rest of the ingredients, aside from the oats and the chocolate chips

Evenly distribute the batter throughout the muffin tin, filling each cup almost to the top, about ¾ way full.
Sprinkle each muffin with additional oats and chocolate chips, if desired.

These muffins can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days. However, if you want to store the muffins for longer, keep them in the fridge for up to 1 week or in the freezer for a few months. If you freeze the muffins, make sure they are in a freezer-safe bag or container.
Tip: make sure to allow the muffins to cool completely before storing to ensure they don't get soggy.
