a Jiffy muffin mix

I've always loved Jiffy muffin mixes. They're cheap, delicious, and easy to make. Plus, the packaging looks all cute and vintage. In college my roommates and I frequently bought them to make muffins on Sunday mornings. Oatmeal is by far the best flavor for breakfast but the corn muffins are perfect alongside a homemade bowl of chili.

Earlier this week I had some bananas that were going bad, but I didn't want to go through the process of making banana bread. Then I  had the idea to liven up my regular Jiffy oatmeal muffin mix with the bananas and chocolate chips. They turned out great! I think next time I make chili I'll experiment with adding cheddar cheese and jalapenos to a corn muffin mix. Yum!  

Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Jiffy Muffins
2 Jiffy oatmeal muffin mixes
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
2 sliced bananas
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Add all the ingredients into a medium size bowl. Mix the ingredients with a fork, smashing the bananas as you go. Cook at 400 degrees for 13-15 min. Makes 12 muffins.

  1. I have to agree with the corn muffin mix. I've tried other.....more expensive, thinking they would be better....NOT. When I was in high school I would come home and fix one of these every afternoon for a snack. I've not tried the oatmeal..........thanks for the heads up. hope things are going well.
