Blender Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Yes, I am still making muffins this year. I have made whole grain banana muffins and Kodiak Cakes muffins. The Kodiak cakes are so fast because they use Kodiak Cakes pancake mix.

This time I used my blender. Why? Because there is simply no reason to buy baked goods when you can make healthy versions at home with stuff you have laying around.

How many of you have bananas, oats, and yogurt in your house right now? I can’t see your hands but I am guessing most of you. Toss them in the blender!

Right? This blends up fast and then you can just pour the batter into the muffin cups.

I found these a bit bland on their own so I added some chocolate chips that I found in the back of my pantry. What else could you find in there? walnuts, dried cranberries, coconut? How about some frozen blueberries in the bottom of your freezer?

I stirred my extra mix-in into the batter in the blender because I was afraid of what would happen if I turned it on.

My blender, Blendtec, is pretty amazing. The carafe broke after 2 years of use and they sent me a new one for free. I did not get this appliance for free (sometimes I get sent stuff like this). I bought it for myself and I have been known to share it with my family.

I keep it on my counter (prime space) and I use it almost every day (smoothies, soups, sauces). It is a workhorse and it fits in my dishwasher. LOVE!

Have you made banana muffins in your blender? Please share.

This makes me want to enter the race to clean up before they come out of the oven!!! When muffins seem bland to me I often spread them with nut butter when they come out and that works really well. Thank you, Lisa!

No yogurt in my fridge! (Can’t eat dairy, don’t bother with non-dairy). What can I substitute? Thanks!

Nancy, So Delicious makes a sugar free coconut milk vanilla yogurt that isn’t bad. It’s only sold in the big containers. I don’t think the vanilla flavor of yogurt would hurt this recipe and you could always use a little less vanilla extract.

I will have to try this ... I like the idea of mix-ins. If you want to try different variations, just poke them into the muffin batter in each cup. I feel like this recipe is crying out for cinnamon!

I'm going to make these with my 3 year old granddaughter, who LOVES to bake. I started yeaching her how to use the blender yesterday. Thanks, Lisa!

Yum! I added 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice and subbed about 1/4 c of the yogurt with homemade applesauce (that had been made with a little pineapple juice) for sweetness; did not use honey or any other sweetener. Pulverized it all in my 1979 Cuisinart. They did need to cook for an extra 5 minutes or so, probably because I added lots and lots of blueberries. Thanks Snack-Girl!!


Super easy. Love that the blender is used. Never would have thought to use it. And love even more that oatmeal is used and not flour. They are delicious. Will have to experiment with the mix-ins. Thank you!


I made these with the vanilla yogurt and they were fine. Would like to know how long they should keep in the refridgerator? Thank you

@Judy - I would probably put these in the freezer and then take them out when I wanted one. I would give them about 5 days in the refrigerator. Thanks for your question!

Robin, I thought I was the only person on earth with a Cuisinart that old! Got mine for Christmas 1978. We didn't have two nickels to rub together, and my husband was afraid I'd never use it. Ha! He's "eaten" those words happily in more ways than one!(He's going to be eating these muffins soon. :-)

Without the honey, it’s zero points on my WW plan. Nice breakfast muffin!

Perfect timing to receive this recipe as I had some VERY ripe bananas in the pantry. It was delicious and will stay in rotation. I did mine in the food processor as we don't use the blender often and it was on the top shelf above my reach. The only thing is that I might add a bit more salt. Thanks for a great recipe!


Updating my previous review - we make these on weekends all the time now and still love them! As I mentioned, I added a bit more salt (1/4 tsp) and used the food processor. Also, I may be the only person on the planet that doesn't love honey so have tried these with maple syrup and it was delicious! Since we don't always have ripe bananas, I have started freezing bananas once they are ripe and pulling them out the night before to put in the fridge to thaw. We appreciate this recipe and love your column!


I make these every weekend and use blueberries for my add—in. I make them in my food processor. I find they need to cook an additional 5 minutes or they are too moist for my liking. They are a staple for my WW diet. 1 point for 1 muffin. 3 points for two muffins as prepared in the recipe.


I substituted flax eggs and they were a little more mushy than expected. I kept them in until they browned but the tops fell after a while. Any ways to keep the tops from falling?

They taste great. I added some leftover pumpkin puree.


Oatmeal Banana Muffins with mix-ins are a healthy treat anytime of day. For a little extra nutrition add 1/2C wheat germ.

I just made! I omitted the honey and used 3/4 cup non fat greek yogurt and 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce like another person commented. I sprinkled some kettlecorn popcorn seasoning on the top of each muffin. So good! Only 1 smartpoint on my WW plan even when eating 2! So happy to have found this recipe today! Thank you Snackgirl!!


I meant 1 smartpoint for each muffin. So if I eat 2 it is 2 smartpoints total.


I made these a second time and this time it held its integrity. I substituted flax egg again, but no banana. Came out great, no tops falling, but lower on the sugar and so after baking I added honey or peanut butter when eating. My siblings who dislike a sugary muffin would love it.
