These banana oatmeal muffins are fast, easy, and perfect.
That's why my whole family loves them so much!
We try to eat oatmeal because it's a healthy food choice.
But, oatmeal can get boring very quickly.
And to be completely honest, I don't like the taste (or texture) of oatmeal!
So when I discovered I could make oatmeal into MUFFINS, I was immediately sold.
Banana Oatmeal Muffins: Why is this Perfect?
For starters, these banana oatmeal muffins can be eaten for breakfast.
- They are kid friendly (my toddler LOVES these).
- They can also be eaten as an afternoon snack when that 2pm itis kicks in.
The best part? This banana oatmeal muffin recipe is free of added sugar.
Yep, that's right.
This recipe calls for no sugar whatsoever.
You might then be thinking
"ohhh I don't know. I like my muffins sweet"
Don't worry - these banana oatmeal muffins are still sweet - even without added sugar.
This is one of the best lessons I've learned from creating recipes for this blog.
Sugar is not the only source of sweetness.
Sweetness can come from all sorts of things like ripe bananas and yummy dates!
That's where the perfect sweetness of these banana oatmeal muffins come from.
Banana Oatmeal Muffins: The Texture
Remember how I said I didn't like the texture of oatmeal?
The truth is, I can be a bit weird about textures in general.
So, I am very pleased to report that the texture of these muffins is nothing like grainy oatmeal.
Instead, they are chewy, bouncy, moist, and heavenly.
I knew I'd hit a home run when my husband (who loves sugar) ate them and asked for more.
His eyes even light up when he sees me whip out the muffin tray and blender haha
Let's just say that these oatmeal banana muffins are perfect in all the ways that I need my muffins to be perfect.
- They are sweet without added sugar
- Very fast to make
- So yummy the whole family can enjoy them!
So without further ado, here's the banana oatmeal recipe I can't seem to stop raving about 🙂
Easy Perfect Banana Oatmeal Muffins Recipe
The best healthy breakfast idea! Delicious and ready in just a few minutes!
- 2 cups oats i use 1 minute quaker oats
- 3 bananas ripe is best
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup pitted whole dates
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 pinch salt optional
- 1 pinch nutmeg optional
- chocolate chips optional...sorta 😀
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, grease a muffin tin, and mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
Pour batter into muffin tin and top with chocolate chips if your heart feels so inclined (they're delicious with or without the chocolate chips).
Bake for 15 - 20 minutes and voila!
My blender is from the olden days so I usually put my eggs in first so everything mixes a bit easier. If you have a really good blender, just throw everything in and you won't have any problems getting a nice smooth consistency fast.
