Healthy Banana Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins Recipe

I get so bored with the same food for breakfast but I don’t want to cook! This recipe only uses one bowl and is very, very quick.

This is a lighter muffin and uses bananas and blueberries for flavor instead of a ton of butter and sugar. My zucchini breakfast muffins and apple oatmeal muffins are both cut from the same cloth.

Why do I keep making muffins with oats, fruit (or vegetables) and less sugar? I like them and they are fun. Once you get going on these types of muffins, the fluffy ones are much less appealing as they taste super sweet.

Also, I love the ease of this recipe. I don’t have to cream the butter and the sugar – just mix in the ingredients with a fork! I use muffin liners for easy clean up and it makes them far easier to take with me for a snack.

These can be gluten free if you used gluten free certified oats in the recipe. Oats should always be gluten free except that they are typically processed on the same equipment as wheat. The wheat mixes in with the oats and if you are Celiac or very sensitive to wheat – you will have a reaction.

My kids like these with a spread of peanut butter or warmed up in the microwave for a few seconds.

These are also a great alternative for a packaged granola bar. They have 5 grams added sugar per serving (which I don’t think is so bad). If you try to make them without the sugar – they may not stick together. Sugar provides an excellent “glue” along with the eggs.

These look so healthy and quite similar to an old favorite cookie I found on the web [thanks to one of your readers] a few years ago. I'll have to try these muffins cuz I love blueberries too! I was planning to bake up a batch of muffins this week. If anyone wants to eliminate sugar or eggs here's the cookie version which is easily adaptable with add-ins like chips, coconut, nuts, etc. and are also breakfast or snack bar alternatives.…

Would this be a complete breakfast item or do I include other food item

Would this be a complete breakfast item or will I add an additional food item

@Maribel - I don't think one of these is enough for breakfast. I would have it with peanut butter and an apple or eat two with a hard boiled egg.

Thanks for your question!!

I had 2 ripe bananas I was about to toss, and had some frozen blueberries on hand, so I decided to make these, and they're a home run! I wanted them to have more protein for additional satiety to maybe be a great breakfast all on their own, so I added 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder in place of the vanilla, increasing these to 8 grams of protein per muffin. All else is the same. The powder is sweetened with stevia, so the muffins are sweeter than they would be otherwise, of course. I will probably leave out the brown sugar next time and just let the powder sweeten them. I love the density of these and how filling they are! My kids and hubs are all liking them, too. Thanks for the idea!

I prefer to make your Baked Oatmeal and divide the batter into 12 muffins! I think you get a more satisfying (i.e. filling) result.

I did a delicious variation of this recipe! I left out the brown sugar and put 4 packets of Truvia in instead. I added 4 Tbs of sugar-free peanut butter powder and Lily's Dark Chocolate Mini Chips (sweetened with Stevia) instead of blueberries and cinnamon. You can use about 65 Lily's mini chips for 2 smart points on WW. I follow the purple plan on WW so these muffins are zero points for one. If I eat two muffins I count 1 point just to be safe. They are just lightly sweet from the banana. So good! Even my fussy husband said they tasted good!

Am I missing the WW pts? Thanks

I like muffins and bananas. I think that this dish is both delicious ad healthy.

This looks like a great recipe. I have been serving muffins in papers at physically distancing things in our back yard-if you take the still hot pans outside, put them on a cooling rack on a table, and invite masked people to come up one at a time to take one when cool, they are a good kind of snack. Will make these for my next thing! Thank you, Lisa

Are these muffins regular size or mini muffins. Thanks

Recipe looks good. Have just made muffins, so when I finish them, I will make the oatmeal ones. I have started using molasses to baked goods to cut down on sugar! Gives the end product a nice taste.

Thanks for your blog. It's so informative!

These blueberry banana oatmeal muffins were a 10+. So very easy to make and just delicious! I added walnuts to the recipe. Will definitely make them again.
