Preheat your oven to 410F and spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray.
Mix the rolled oats and yogurt together; add the milk and let the mixture sit for 10-12 minutes.
In a medium bowl, gently mix the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and baking powder until evenly combined.
In a large bowl, mash the bananas then whisk in the egg and oil. Using a spatula, mix in the oat-yogurt-milk mixture until combined. Gradually add the flour mixture until combined – do not over mix!! If desired, add the chocolate chips (may also add nuts or dried fruit). Fill the muffin cup about ⅔ of the way full and bake for about 14-16 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean! Enjoy!
