Yogurt Banana Oat Muffins

Original Recipe HERE

I've made these twice and find them a filling snack.  The consistency is different than a usual muffin, probably due to the yogurt and oat flour.  I like to split them in half and spread peanut butter or Nutella on them.

1-1/4 cup oats [I used old fashioned]
1/2 cup yogurt [I used low fat vanilla]
1/2 cup milk
2 large, very ripe bananas, mashed [I used 3]
1/3 cup oil or applesauce [I used coconut oil]
1 egg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1-1/2 cup oat flour [about 2 cups oats]
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins or walnuts [optional; I did not use]
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips [optional]
(1) Make oat flour by grinding approximately 2 cups of oats in a food processor until they reach a flour-like consistency.
(2) In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine oats, yogurt, and milk.  Let stand at least 10 minutes (mine was more like 45).
(3) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Grease or line a 12-cup muffin tin.
(4) In a separate bowl, sift together sugar, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, salt, and cinnamon.
(5) Add bananas, oil or applesauce, and egg to yogurt mixture.  Combine thoroughly.
(6) Add flour mixture to yogurt mixture.  Mix completely.
(7) Add raisins, walnuts, or chocolate chips if desired.
(8) Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.  Bake 16-20 minutes (mine were done at 18).  Allow to cool several minutes in tin before removing to cooling rack.
