When you’re an “on the go” person, breakfast can be really hard. I know from experience that occasionally, I have to eat in my car while I’m driving to class. It just happens that way sometimes. The best on the go breakfast is always muffins. Yes, they can be messy, but they taste so delicious and can be super filling. Today’s recipe is going to be on these Baked Banana & Dark Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins. I found this recipe from This Pinterest Pin and This Recipe so I decided to recreate it with my own personal liking! Now let’s finally get into the recipe!
