  • Sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top of the muffins while they’re still warm for more cinnamon flavor.

What are the best oats for baking?

When selecting rolled oats for baking you have two options, old-fashioned rolled oats and quick cooking rolled oats. In most recipes, quick-cooking oats and old-fashioned oats are interchangeable. Both have been flattened with large rollers, but quick-cooking oats have been cut into smaller pieces. As a result, quick-cooking oats cook faster, and they offer a more delicate texture to baked goods and desserts. For a heartier texture, use old-fashioned oats.

Are Banana Oatmeal Muffins Gluten-Free?

These oatmeal muffins are made with oats rather than white or wheat flour. Oats are naturally gluten-free, but often get contaminated with gluten because they are processed in facilities that also process wheat, barley, and rye. Be sure to use certified gluten-free oats, if you are serving the muffins to someone with a gluten intolerance.

How to Make Banana Oatmeal Muffins with CHOCOLATE in a Blender?

These are not your typical banana oatmeal muffins. Yes, they are ultra-moist as any self-respecting muffin should be. Yes, they are healthy and wholesome, another (for me) desirable trait in my breakfast muffins.  they use basic ingredients that you probably have on hand right now

The Ingredients

  • Bananas. Those brown bananas may have been shunned from your cereal but they were destined for banana oatmeal muffin (or Cream Cheese Banana Bread) greatness.
  • Oats. My healthy, gluten free, and fiber-filled swap for flour. The blender does all the work grinding the oats into coarse oat flour (as seen in Healthy Oatmeal Muffins) that gives these muffins texture and body while they bake.
  • Greek Yogurt. Keep these muffins low in fat and high in moisture while also packing in a little protein.
  • Chocolate Chips. Of course, chocolate chips are always delicious!
  • Eggs. Add just enough fat to keep these muffins soft and moist and provide the batter with essential structure.
  • Honey. Naturally sweeten the muffins and infuse them with a light honey flavor.
  • Baking Powder + Baking Soda. Act as leaveners to help the muffins rise.

The Directions

  1. Toss all of the goodies (other than your mix-ins) into the blender and hit go.
  2. Once smooth, stir in any mix-ins by hand.
  3. Transfer to a greased standard-size muffin tin and sprinkle on any toppings.
  4. Bake until golden and toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.
  5. Remove, let cool, and ENJOY!


If you’re adding the chocolate chips, you can either stir them into the batter or you can sprinkle them on top before baking. (Note that, if the batter is warm from the blender, it may melt the chips a bit, creating a light and lovely chocolate swirl.)

I opted for both, because…chocolate. (If you also love chocolate in your muffins, you have to try these Chocolate Banana Muffins!)

The Best Banana Muffins

Here are a few reasons to love this banana muffin recipe (which happens to be more nutritionally redeeming than most):

  • These muffins are easy to make with basic ingredients. Only one bowl required!
  • They’re made with 100% whole grains, yet they’re fluffy and delicious. No one will know the difference.
  • They’re also naturally sweetened with maple syrup or honey, rather than loaded with refined sugar. The maple syrup (or honey) offers a touch of extra flavor, which I love.
  • A touch of cinnamon offers some warming spice flavor. These muffins will make your house smell amazing!
  • These muffins freeze well, too. Just defrost individual muffins in the microwave for 30 to 60 seconds, or until gently warmed through. You don’t want to overdo it.
