Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Don't you love having recipes in your collection that at any given time you ALWAYS have the ingredients to make?

I get excited to add recipes to that collection and I recently found another one:
Low Sugar Banana Oat Muffins from Southern Plate.

They're so good.  My family approves which is why I've made them three times since she posted the recipe at the first of the year.  I've made them for friends and for my family and they've gotten the same review of GREAT!  They are really quick to make and bake under 15 minutes.  I can whip them up in no time for a quick, delicious breakfast.  It can be a challenge to find muffins that are healthy and tasty.  These muffins include much less sugar and oil than other recipes I've tried.

I made some changes to the original recipe so here's my version:

2-3 ripe bananas
1/3 c sugar
1/2 c 2% milk
2 T vegetable oil
1 egg
1 t vanilla
2/3 c flour
1/2 c quick cook oats
2 t baking powder
dash of salt
1/2 c chocolate chips

I followed the recipe directions exactly for combining the ingredients.  Basically, start at the top of the list and work your way down adding the ingredients to a mixer.  The batter will be more liquidy than other muffins I make. 

I opted to make mini muffins instead of full size muffins.  My family just prefers them.  The mini muffins bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes or until slightly browned.

These muffins are best fresh out of the oven, but are still pretty yummy the next day.

Hope your family loves them as much as we did.


  1. I am so excited you posted this recipe! I have ripe bananas sitting on my counter top and my kiddos love muffins! These will be such a fun treat for them to come home to this afternoon! Thanks for sharing friend!

  2. Ooo L and I have been on a banana bread/mini muffin kick and we've been using the recipe from Cookie and Kate. No sugar (maple syrup), whole wheat flour and coconut oil. Delicious! Yesterday I let her add choc chips to her half of the pan (I prefer nuts!) and Tell has eaten his weight in them. hah

  3. Oh yum! These sound so good!! Your recipes are always winners, though! :) I really love that little plate in the first photo - do you remember where you found it?

  4. These look delicious. My kids love carbs in the morning, so I am always trying to find ways to make them a little healthier.

  5. I just printed the recipe! These sound so amazing.

  6. I love banana muffins I will have to try this!!


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
