Heat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 4.

Blitz the oats in a food processor until you have a flour (you can use wheat flour if you don’t have a food processor).

In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until you have a smooth purée and stir in the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate spread/chocolate.

Half-fill each muffin pocket with the muffin mixture, place ½ a tsp of the chocolate in the centre of each, then cover with the rest of the mix.

Place on the top shelf of the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes.
