These adorable two-bite treats are the perfect solution for a chocolate craving. Naturally sweet banana lets us use less sugar and keeps these muffins moist, and it’s one of the best ways to use up a ripe banana. Oats add fiber and texture, and chocolate chips make them crowd-pleasers. The recipe also features yogurt, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and both all-purpose and whole-wheat flour for the perfect flavor and texture combination. You can freeze any extra muffins (though we doubt there will be many; feel free to scale up the ingredients and make an extra batch) for a couple of months, then thaw and reheat for 3 to 5 minutes.
