“New School” Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

This recipe was inspired by my grandmas “old school” banana chocolate chip muffins. My grannies version is DELISH; but the new school version swaps out the refined sugar, refined white flour, and butter for fruit based sweetener,old-fashioned oats, and coconut oil.

When you love old school baking but your lifestyle wants something else... Here is the perfect medium!

In my house, we enjoy these as a side for breakfast or a quick pick-me-up.
