Hearty Banana Oat Muffins

Hearty Banana Oat Muffins

These muffins are seriously delicious and will be the hit for a quick and easy breakfast or afternoon snack. I always seem to have over ripe bananas in my house and this is a great recipe to not let them go to waste! Omit the chocolate chips and add walnuts instead for an even healthier alternative.


  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • Cups of mashed ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup milk (coconut, almond work well too)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or walnuts (optional)



  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with liners or grease with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the oatmeal, mashed banana, milk, egg, vanilla, butter and sugar. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and chocolate chips or walnuts.
  3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the we mixture. Stir just until combined (don’t overmix!)
  4. Spoon the batter evenly into the muffin cups. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Don’t overbake or the muffins will be dry. Remove them to a cooling rack. Cool completely before freezing in a ziplock freezer bag.
