Banana & Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cups

Every once in a while, we all need something sweet, and these muffins definitely fit the bill. Yes, they contain some sugar, but it is balanced out by some healthy fats coming in the form of coconut oil and coconut milk and contain a good amount of fiber from the rolled oats and bananas.

When you want to eat some baked goods, I definitely recommend making your own, because then you can control the amount of sugar and the quality of the ingredients. So give these here a try. They’re perfect for a party, to bring to work for a sweet treat, or as an occasional snack.
