oatmeal banana breakfast muffins


here is a recipe to celebrate the weekend. 
i am a banana girl and let me tell you, 
this is one of my favorite banana recipes i’ve made. 
the best part? no flour/oil/butter but you can’t even tell! 
make them for breakfast. you won’t regret it!
{make sure to eat them warm or heat them up because they are best that way!}
 

Ingredients
2.5 cups old fashioned oats {or gluten-free}
1 cup plain low fat greek yogurt
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar {or sweetener of choice}
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 ripe bananas 

chocolate chips {optional}

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray tin with non-stick cooking spray or line 12 muffin tins with silicone or foil liners.
2. Place all of the ingredients, including bananas in a blender or food processor, and blend until oats are smooth. {I added the oats a cup at a time and blended in between}
3. Divide batter among cupcake liners, and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.  
**Be sure to watch them closely in the oven, because depending on altitude, baking time may be a little less**
4. Most importantly: Enjoy & try not to eat them all at once!

husband ate 4 in the first ten minutes after they came out of the oven..
on the last one he even added his own topping: nutella! smart guy.
have a great saturday! we are off to the flea market {one of our fall dates}
and then our visitors arrive! XO

*UPDATE: read through the comments below if you’re going to make these! 
there are some great tips for substitutions and variations to make these gluten-free, etc!
as you can see in the pictures, i’ve made them a few different ways & they’ve all been great!

    they seem healthy to me + if husband scarfed down 4 in 10 minutes, i’d say we need to give these a whirl. i think we’ll top ours with whipped creme + raspberries. because, why not?

    Hi, great recipe, we love them.
    I don’t know where you live, but I live in western Canada, and I baked them for 20 minutes, which was way to much. I found that 12 minutes was just perfect.
    Thanks for this great treat.

    I added an extra banana and used a little pumpkin pie spice and a tad bit of honey.

    I also ground up flax seed and hemp seed to mix in with the oats for an extra protein boost.

    We LOVE these muffins – so simple and healthy!

    I am allergic to wheat and I was so excited when I saw this recipe. It’s hard to find good wheat-free muffins that don’t taste like paste! I left the sugar out and I didn’t even use a food processor and they still turned out fantastic. Will definitely be making this a lot. I’m probably going to steal Alicia’s idea and try adding a little pumpkin too.

      I just found these on pinterest so I’m late to the game but I also thought the sugar was unnecessary- I ended up adding 1 tbsp after debating whether to add any at all and they were more than sweet enough. Will make them without any sugar next time. Good recipe though! Thanks for sharing.

    I made these today and they rose perfectly in the oven, but when I took them out they sunk down into the paper cupcake liner…..the only variation I did was Agave instead of sugar. The center is not real fluffy/airy like a typical muffin, its moist and sticky…..is that normal? This is the first time I’ve made a muffin without flour. Thanks!

      I just made them with steel cut oats. Maybe I should have run the oats through the food processor by themselves before I added the rest of the ingredients because the oats didn’t really get smooth and I was worried that I would blend the egg too much and the muffins would come out tough. The flavor is great (though next time I think less sugar, more banana) but the texture is a bit grainy.

    Hi , I just made the muffins and found them too runny, I think 1/2 cup of rice flour would help and 1/2 tsp of salt they were flat tasting as well, I also added 1/2 tsp of Mexican vanilla and 1/4 cup of honey in replacement for 1/2 of the sugar,
    thanks, i will try the rice flour myself next time, my husband loved them and ate 3, now that is a ravin endorsement, !!!

    These are wonderful! I followed the recipe exactly, baked for about 18-19 minutes and they were perfect and golden. I think the baking time must be influenced by location, altitute and of course, your oven because fewer than 18-19 minutes would have left the undercooked (I’m in WNY). I really like the idea contributed by someone above about using chocolate Greek yogurt or any flavored Greek yogurt. Looking forward to making these again with some experimentation!

    I made these last night. I only had 6 oz of greek nofat plain yogurt, so I used an extra half banana. Then I used splenda baking mix in place of the sugar. I added a sprinkle of cinnamon. I baked mine for 15 minutes and they were done. They were really good. Mine puffed up so they weren’t flat.

    splash of vanilla extract

    1 banana
    1 cup lite and fit vanilla yogurt

    Ended up using vanilla Greek yogurt and didn’t quite have enough so I added some applesauce too. I also added some shredded coconut and they turned out delicious!

    I only food processed the oats and used a pastry blender to mix the other ingredients together. Ended up with some larger pieces of banana but they were a great surprise…great texture.

    I made my first batch with paper muffin liners, and they sunk in the middle after they came out of the oven. I used foil liners for the second batch, and they came out perfect! For those who had baking troubles, try foil liners instead and see if it helps.

Only took 13 minutes in my oven, and I’m in California too (I think my oven tends to run a bit hot though.)

    The crux of your writing whilst sounding reasonable

    in the beginning, did not work properly with me after some time.
    Someplace within the sentences

    you actually managed to make me a believer but just for a short

    while. I nevertheless have got a problem with your jumps in logic and

    one would do well to fill in those breaks. In the

    event you can accomplish that, I would certainly be impressed.

    I made these but didn’t have yogurt so I substituted half sour cream and half buttermilk. They came out great. I made them a second time (the next day because they went fast at my house) but substituted some honey for half of the sugar. They didn’t rise as well and had a dryer texture but my 3 year old still ate them!

    Made a batch last night and used organic Sucanat brown sugar instead of sugar, added 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice and 1 tsp vanilla. The only change we thought was will add 1/2 tsp salt next time. I also want to try these and sub applesauce for bananas and add some cocoa for chocolate applesauce. I used gluten free oats and so thrilled to find a gluten free muffin that tastes great and has normal texture.

    Update. Just went downstairs to make these while hubby was sleeping so they would be ready for him in the morning. I followed the recipe but only had 6 oz of regular yogurt and filled the rest of the cup with applesauce. Put in a half cup sugar instead of 3/4 cup. It made a lot so filled the cups full. Did not rise well. Was not fluffy but dense and grainy from the oatmeal. I did grind the dry ingredients first to make sure it was ground up well. The flavor was lacking. Yes I know they are healthy but barely any flavor and depth. I put chopped walnuts on top for a little crunch. Really disappointed in the results I had. I couldn’t eat even one. I’ll wait until they cool and taste again.

    Jana, maybe your baking powder has gone bad? Also, I ground up my oatmeal to flour before I made these. Then I poured it out into a measuring cup and put the liquid/banana/eggs in first, then added a little bit of oats at a time.

    Found these on Pinterest and made them this morning. I used Quaker Cinnamon flavored Simple Portions oatmeal & ground it into a fine powder with my Bullet blender. Next a used the Bullet to blend bananas and yogurt until it was creamy. I was out of baking powder & soda so I used 2 tsp of Bisquick instead. I used stevia in place of sugar. I baked them for 18 minutes and they came out perfect. They weren’t very sweet, so i drizzled organic honey over the top. I’ll probably add a bit more stevia next time though!

    Made these this morning and I have definitely found a new, healthy go-to recipe! Followed the recipe exactly except for regular vanilla yogurt instead of plain Greek. The cool thing is I was afraid my muffin tins were plenty full so with my small amount of batter left in the blender I decided to try a pancake. It totally worked and was so yummy! I do think it would work best to keep the pancakes a bit smaller than mine was as its easier to flip. I’m excited! I will likely be using this often, halving the recipe for my daughter and I if I decide to go with the pancakes :)

    For those having trouble with the consistency – I found it best to grind up the oats by themselves, then combine all the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ones in the other, and then add the wet to the dry and mix them by hand.

    I made these today with a slight modification (I added 1 tbsp of vanilla extract and 1 tbsp of cinnamon sugar) and they came out nice and moist and peaked in the middle as well (this is why they need to be baked at 400 degrees).

    I found your recipe via Pinterest and made them last night. They turned out really well and so delicious for a healthy option!

    I substituted the 2 eggs for 4 egg whites instead and added a 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. :)

    Just tried these – delicious! Any tips for helping them come out of the paper liners a bit easier? I lost a lot of yummy muffin on the paper.

    So yummy! We make these all the time! I don’t have a food processor so I just let the batter soak for a few minutes before baking to soften the oats. It comes out so chewy and soft. Thanks so much for sharing!

    I made these tonight and they are great. I might blend the oats by themselves for awhile next time in order to get them even smoother but I kind of like the chewy, oat texture that I got by just throwing it all in and going for it. I made enough for 24 muffins and I noticed that the second batch had a thicker batter due to the oats soaking up more of the liquid ingredients. I will probably let the batter sit for 10-15 minutes next time before putting them into the muffin tins. We added a few dark chocolate chips and these are a hit!

    Hi, i made these last night but onky had 6oz of yogurt. Since i didnt read the comments last night and tried to do half of everything. I overcooked them a bit because the inside was notcooked . They turned out hard out chewy inside, they do taste good, i guess it was because y tried to do half of the recipe and maybe added too little or too much of the ingredients

    These taste great even after they’re frozen! I made them and wrote about the recipe here: http://theeconomicalhomemaker.com/delicious-oatmeal-banana-muffins-great-frozen-too/.

    I just wanted to led you know I made these using pumpkin in place of bananas and adding pumpkin pie spice for my son-in-law who is allergic to bananas. I made a bunch of the banana ones for my grandson and his mom. They love them and pull them out of the freezer for a quick snack or part of breakfast in the morning. Of course, I make them for me, too. Thank you!!

    Thanks for a great recipe! I made them this morning with just 1tbs of honey (no other sugar – I find the bananas sweet enough). Addded some dried caranberries and spices (cardemom, cinamon, nutmeg) and topped it with some shedded cocounut. Oh so yummy! And actually quite healthy :)

    I just have to say that these muffins are amazing!! I have already made them numerous times, and have even been able to pull it off using a bullet instead of a blender by just making sure the wets and drys are mixed even (college students are poor you know). If anyone wants to use a bullet to do it then I mix it in these ratios, (1 c oats, 1/3 c yogurt, 1/2 banana, 1 egg), I do that twice and then (1/2 c oats, 1/3 c yogurt, 1 banana), then I just mix the sugar and baking soda and powder in to the rest of the dough in a bowel. But I love how healthy and easy they are to make! Great job with this recipe, best muffins in my cook book =)

    Just came out of the oven and they are wonderful. Yum! Thanks so much for sharing! I love all the comments too, very helpful.I like the ideas of replacing the sugar with honey or maple syrup, and adding flax. Also love to comment someone made about using strawberries! I also added some cinnamon.

    These turned out delicious! I made a few substitutions. I used fat free vanilla yogurt instead of the Greek yogurt. I used two egg whites and one whole egg instead of two whole eggs. I used applesauce instead of sugar. I also added some cinnamon.

    Wondering if I could us this in an electric donut cooker.. I’m thinking of the comment about making pancakes. I’ve been trying to find a healthy donut recipe. I want a dense texture and the cake mix version just doesn’t work; too airy for me.

    I have a couple of comments about these. First, they are amazing. I’ve been looking for a good wheat-free/gluten-free banana muffin for a while. I’ve managed to do applesauce, zucchini, pumpkin, and peanut butter, but never a successful banana without a million strange ingredients. These fit the bill and I am in LOVE. Second, they do not need the sugar, at all. My blender was struggling so I completely forgot the sugar, but with butter and a tiny drizzle of honey or a little nutella, these are perfect and not cloyingly sweet like banana bread usually is. Third, my last half cup of oats wouldn’t blend in at all, so I just mixed them in whole and the texture they added was wonderful. Thanks again for this lovely recipe!

    Oh these look so good. I didn’t have any banana’s at home. So I used pears and added some nutmeg and vanilla. From my guys, I got a thumbs up and brilliant. The muffins where dense but good.

    Thank you for this delicious recipe! I made two batches today – one with regular oats and one with steel cut. I let the batter with steel cut sit a few minutes to try to absorb the liquid better, but next time I will also reduce the heat, maybe to 350* and bake longer, maybe closer to the 20 minute mark (the regular oatmeal muffins were done in about 14-15 minutes at 400*). I will definitely be trying these again! …Maybe with blueberries next time…

    I make these every week and mix them up in my Vitamix! They are terrific! I have substituted Nutella instead of sugar and they came out great. Periodically, I add blueberries or chocolate chips and am thinking of making some with applesauce, lemon and poppyseeds. This is a terrific recipe and easy to add substitutions. Thank you!
