Get That Milk Flowin’ Spiced Banana Oat Chia Muffins


12 muffins


C = cup
T = tablespoon
t = teaspoon


  • 4 cardamom pods

  • 2½ C whole grain old fashioned oats

  • 4 ripe bananas

  • 1 t ground cinnamon

  • 1 t vanilla extract

  • ½ C honey

  • 8 T unsalted butter

  • 1½ t baking powder

  • ½ t baking soda

  • 2 T chia seeds

  • 2 eggs

  • ¼ C chocolate chips

  • maple syrup, for drizzling


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  2. Remove seeds from 4 cardamom pods and grind in a mortar and pestle.

  3. In a food processor, blend together the ground cardamom pods, 2½ cups of whole grain old fashioned oats, 4 ripe bananas, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, ½ cup of honey, 8 tablespoons of unsalted butter, 1½ teaspoons of baking powder, ½ teaspoon of baking soda, and 2 tablespoons of chia seeds.

  4. Add 2 eggs and pulse until well incorporated. Using an ice-cream scooper, transfer the mixture into muffin liners or a greased muffin tray. Sprinkle with ¼ cup of chocolate chips over muffins for some added sweetness. 

  5. Bake for about 18 minutes, check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of a muffin—if the toothpick comes out clean it’s fully baked! Allow the muffins to cool and enjoy as is or with a drizzle of maple syrup. Eat up, Mama!

  6. Once cooled completely, store leftovers in an airtight plastic bag in the freezer. Your future self will thank you kindly.
