Flourless Banana Oatmeal Muffins

This is a recipe I actually adapted from my own recipe! Years ago I published my Breakfast Bistro Box, and it was a hit at the time. One of people’s favorite parts was the little muffins that was part of the box. The probable with the muffins in that recipe is that it only made 8, I needed more!

So I revamped the recipe a little bit. I changed the method just slightly, scaled the recipe up to an even dozen, and of course added mini chocolate chips!

This recipe is one of those easy one’s you can make at almost any time because you are most likely to have everything you need. Plus it is quick to make, I have even been known to make these fresh on a weekday morning in our house, granted it is on a day when we all wake up with enough time to not be rushed, but still the muffins are that easy!

Ingredients

The biggest thing to note about the ingredients is the more ripe or overripe the bananas the better the muffins will be. If you try to use bananas that are still somewhat green the muffins just aren’t going to turn out like you want. So when those bananas have been sitting on the counter a few to many days past eating that is the best time to make a batch of these healthy muffins!

Besides that you will need:

  • Oats, quick or old fashion
  • Bananas, overripe
  • Eggs
  • Maple syrup
  • Baking soda
  • Kosher salt
  • Mini chocolate chips, technically optional, you do not have to add these if you don’t want to or don’t have them

Tips, Tricks, and Questions

  • I love my silicone baking cups, it is one of those items in my kitchen that I would highly recommend, especially if you enjoy making muffins quite frequently. You can find them HERE on Amazon.
  • If you are looking for a true Gluten-Free option you need to ensure you are using oats marked as gluten-free.
  • You do not need to use the mini chocolate chips, you can leave them out or you could substitute them with a different little filling like blueberries or nuts.
