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!

  5. 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?
    thanks for the recipe.

  14. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. 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.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i'm so glad! i agree, i might have to try them with the pumpkin too! Xo

      Delete
    2. you left the sugar out completely, and didn't even substitute anything? impressive! might try that!

      Delete
    3. Erica - have you tried King Arthur GF Muffin mix?? It's just the mix, you add your own berries or chocolate chips. They are sooo tasty!

      Delete
    4. 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.

  20. Hey! just wondering how many the recipe makes? Want to know if there would be enough to freeze..

    ReplyDelete

    1. hi! this made one dozen..so maybe you could double it and freeze them? great idea! xo

      Delete
    2. I'm sure you've tried by now, but when I made it, I got 18 and we froze what we didn't eat. They aren't as fluffy after the cooling/freezing, but they are still fantastic!

  21. If I dont have baking soda, what can I use in it's place?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i think that if you triple the amount of baking powder, it can act as a substitute for baking soda {but might affect the taste a little bit!} let me know if that works! xo

  22. Just put these in the oven. Modified it a little because I had no yogurt. 3/4 cup milk and 1/2 apple sauce. Also threw in some honey. Fingers crossed that they are good!

    1. did they turn out ok? I want to make today and don't want to run to the store for yogurt! ;)

      Delete
  23. 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!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. oh shoot! no, they are usually fluffy and have the texture of a normal muffin. maybe it was the substitute? sorry!

      Delete
    2. when they fall after taking them out of the oven, that means you undercooked them! better luck next time!

      Delete
    3. Try using 1/2 sugar, 1/2 agave next time... agave nectar can be moody.

      Delete
  24. Do you put the sliced bananas on top after they are baked?

    ReplyDelete

    1. yep i just put them on as a little garnish when i took them out of the oven!

  25. Anyone used steel-cut oats to make them gluten-free? Just curious before I try them....sound yummy!

    ReplyDelete

    1. we haven't tried that, but love the idea! let me know if you do try and how it works! xo

      Delete
    2. I made them with steel cut oats and they came out just fine. I had made them with regular before and can't really tell a difference.

      Delete
    3. 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.

      Delete
  26. Loved these...i also made them by replacing: the banana with pumpkin; white sugar with brown sugar and plan greek yogurt with vanilla....yummy

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. YUM! that sounds amazing..we might have to try that version this week!

      Delete
    2. May I know when you replace with pumpkin, are they raw pumpkins?
      Just add in raw pumpkins & blend till smooth?

      Delete
  27. These are SO good! I've made a habbit of reading all comments for tips on new recipes & I'm super glad I did for this one! I saw someone in Canada said to only bake them 12 mins, and that was a great starting point for me here in WA! 15 mins was perfect!! GREAT RECIPE!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Just thought I'd add my $.02 as well....these are just PERFECT!!! Not to mention so freaking easy to make and modify here or there if you wanted. LOVE IT!!
    PS: used vanilla Greek yogurt and added a tad of French vanilla extract and cinnamon...Yum!
    Thx for the recipe :)

  29. Recipe sounds delicious! Any ideas on what to substitute for the greek yogurt so that these could be dairy free? Wondering if almond milk & applesauce would work....

  32. Is that 2.5 cups of cooked or uncooked oats?

    2. I blended mine on "crush" level 5 for a good minute or so until the mixture looked like flour.

  34. I'm not sure what happened with these, but mine didn't cook through all the way. After almost 20 minutes, they are still gooey. My batter didn't get very smooth. Could that be why?

  35. I'm so glad there is no four!!! It means BOTH my Dad and brother can eat these without getting sick!!! (LOTS of food allergies in my family) thank you for posting!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Just put them in the oven. I had to substitute the baking powder because it has corn in it and my husband is allergic. I'll let you know how they turn out! They smell delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  37. what if i used chocolate greek yogurt, to make chocolate-banana muffins? or would it turn out gross do you think? I only have chocolate, not plain or vanilla

    ReplyDelete
  38. 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, !!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Just did them. I get it why these muffins need to be served hot.... I am not going to lie and say those are the best Ive ever eaten, but they are healthy and I am having my snack fix after my gym and it is hitting the spot.

    ReplyDelete
  40. to the person who used baby oatmeal cereal to make for 1yr olds...how much of the baby cereal or did you use the same amount? Have you made the regular version and if so is there any texture/consitancy difference or cook time adjustments?

  42. 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!

    1. Yes, dry oats. Put them in your blender to smooth them out. After some blending, they are pulverized and the mixture looks like flour.

  45. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Great recipe!

    I made the following changes:

    1/2cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup white sugar
    splash of vanilla extract

    1 banana
    1 cup lite and fit vanilla yogurt

    I plan to make it again with more bananas. I only had one ripe one around this time :)

  47. I used milk instead of yogurt and 2 cups of reg oats and 1/2 cup of steel cut oats and the texture is wonderful. I also doubled the banana my toddler ate 2 straight out of the oven.

  50. 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.

  61. I made these tonight and they are yummy! Sub'd ~1/4 cup Truvia for the sugar and used ~1/3 cup coconut flour in place of some of the oatmeal. Only took 13 minutes in my oven, and I'm in California too (I think my oven tends to run a bit hot though.) Thanks for the recipe... These are delish and I can't wait to eat another one in the morning with my coffee!

  62. 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.

  76. My family really loves these muffins. I have made them three times with great results. I have reduced the sugar to 1/4 c. brown sugar and 1/4 c. maple syrup and added blueberries or strawberries. I'm so glad I found an oatmeal recipe in disguise. Great for my son who's not a big oatmeal fan.

  87. Adding chopped pecans makes the muffins rise more. I also put a whole pecan on top (before baking). Yum! Everybody loves them, especially the son who can't eat wheat products. Thanks!

  88. 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.

  89. I'm not an oatmeal lover (in fact, I hate it) but one of my goals this year is to overcome my oatmeal phobia so in search of oatmeal-friendly recipes, I came across yours. I'm so glad that I tried it because the muffins are delicious! I added an extra banana and blueberries and sub the sugar for Nectresse. I'm sure my hubby & kids will LOVE these as well! Thank you for sharing!!

  90. I used the base of these muffins to make apple muffins! I reduced the amount of oatmeal and added 1/2 cup of oat bran for extra fiber, substituted bananas for fresh apple sauce and 1 tsp of cinnamon. I also sprinkled some brown sugar, oatmeal and cinnamon on the top. Yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I want to make these and surprise my hubby in the morning as he goes to work. I know he would like them just as they are but I read that someone added peanut butter. How much do you add? I don't want it to be over powering and can still taste the banana. Also wanting to add walnuts. Thanks for a healthy tasty muffin!

    ReplyDelete
  92. 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.

  93. I made these this morning using greek yogurt and 3 bananas that I needed to use. I added a bit of salt to them and used the liquid sucralose as sweetener. I did add a bit of milk to thin the yogurt I had which was very thick. And I added a tsp of vanilla. THey are awesome!! Delicious!!!!

    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.

  95. I have used blended oats as my "flour" before and so I have oats that are already 'pulverized' into a flour. Do you know how much oat flour to use...I can figure out how much 1 cup of oats turns into if I need to... Thank you, I'm looking forwrd to trying this recipe!

  98. 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!

  99. These just came out of our oven. My Man LOVES them. used just 1/2c sugar and had only 1 1/2 bananas. Oh, and my yogurt was full-fat and i had only about 1/2c (cut it with some 1% milk). Can't wait to try these with cinnamon, vanilla and nuts!

  100. Made these last night for this weeks breakfasts.... added pecans & almond extract :-) They're so good!

  101. 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 :)

  102. Hi,
    I made the muffins for breakfast this morning. Our 4 year old son ran down the stairway because there was a "smell of muffins" in the house. He had THREE for breakfast !!!
    Thank you for this great recipe.
    I even provide it on my blog.
    Greetings from Germany ! Stephanie

  103. These are delicious! I added 1/2 coconut flour for 1/2 of the oats because I had some to use and they are so good but it brings up the carbs & fat content. Next time, I will omit the coconut and make with oats only. This is perfect for me right now because I am on a semi-soft diet due to oral surgery and I love eggs but wanted something else for breakfast! Great recipe, Thanks!!!

  104. I had mine in the oven for 30 min and the middle was still really soft/wet and looked uncooked to me. I fallowed the recipe exactly the way it is written... The muffins are golden on the top, they look fully cooked, but is the middle supposed to be soft and wet looking? I still ate them. They are SOOO delicious! but I dont know if it is raw! help?

  108. I just made these. I did 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar, strawberry greek yogurt, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 2 flax seed "eggs". They turned out great! Thanks!

  109. Hubby said the muffins needed a pinch of salt. I agree and will add some pumpkin spice and use vanilla yogurt next time. Textures was a little on the chewy side. I think I will process the oats alone first next time.

    Thanks for the fun recipe!

  112. I have made these twice now and they turned out perfectly. My daughter must eat gluten free and this is the perfect recipe for her. I used a little less sugar and they were plenty sweet. I also used regular plain yogurt. Can't wait to try out different variations. I think this is now my "go to" gluten free muffin recipe to which I can add other ingredients like pumpkin or zucchini! If you want healthier muffins or gluten free, definitely try this one! You won't be sorry!

  114. I wonder if oat bran would work in place of the oatmeal.... Any thoughts???

  115. 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).

  116. I'm going to use the base of this recipe (minus sugar and using egg whites instead of whole eggs) again and again. So fast in my food processor and pretty tasty without all the guilt!! Thank You So Much!!!

  117. I just made these! I had just finished up most of my greek yogurt this morning so I substituted the rest of it with coconut milk. They turned out great! Very dense, which I like. In hindsight, I wish I'd added some cinnamon or nutmeg. I'll definitely be making these again. Such a healthy breakfast or snack option!

  118. I've been making these regularly now for the last several months, and absolutely love this recipe. It's so easy, and with grocery store ripe bananas at $1/bunch, you can't go wrong. I've thrown in extra things every once in a while (walnuts, shredded coconut). Thank you!

  124. 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!

  125. 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!
