These are about the best muffins I have ever tasted. They got their peculiar name when one evening I was down with a migraine and my neighbor baked and brought them over for the family to enjoy. When I recovered in the wee hours of the morning after not eating for close to 48 hours, seeing these on the kitchen counter I ate one...well all I can tell you was that they were pure heaven. After eating these delightful morsels I asked MJ for the recipe, but she continued to forget to give it to me until one morning many months later she finally e-mailed it to me and on that very day I had another migraine. Go figure, they're a nice cure anyway!

I had a raging migraine the day I decided to prepare these very easy to prepare muffins. They were very quick to mix up and turned out lovely and very delicious. I loved the combination of banana, oats and chocolate chips. I don't know that they healed my migraine, but they made my tummy surre feel good. They were so tasty, I ate 3 in one sitting.
Really nice. However, next time I would put in less chocolate chips. Felt there were a bit too many for my taste.
