Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins

These Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins make breakfast time so much easier! They are perfect to store in the freezer for a quick and easy breakfast or snack option on the go.

The bananas, coconut oil and honey keep these muffins super soft and moist. I also add a good amount of chocolate chips to the batter. I usually do a mix of dark chocolate chips and semi sweet chocolate.

These Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins are super easy to make. All you need is one bowl and some pantry staples. Here’s what you’ll need:

Ingredients

  • Oats: I recommend using rolled or old fashioned oats. Steel cut oats will not work in this recipe.
  • Light brown sugar: Other readers have made this and substituted maple syrup for the brown sugar.
  • Cinnamon: Adds the perfect amount of spice to the muffins.
  • Salt
  • Baking soda
  • Eggs: For an egg alternative substitute flax eggs.
  • Honey: Can substitute with maple syrup if you have that on hand.
  • Banana: I like to use extra ripe bananas. The riper they are the sweeter they will make your muffins!
  • Vanilla: I love using vanilla extract in this muffin however almond extract can be added as well.
  • Milk: Soy milk, almond milk or cashew milk work as well.
  • Coconut oil: If you do not have coconut oil you can use canola or vegetable oil instead.
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips: I use a mix of semi sweet and dark chocolate chips.

How to make Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins

  • Preheat oven: To 350 degrees. Grease a muffin pan with non stick cooking spray.
  • Mix dry ingredients: In a large bowl combine the oats, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking soda.
  • Mix wet ingredients: In a medium bowl combine eggs, honey, mashed bananas, vanilla, milk and coconut oil.
  • Combine batter: Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until combined, do not over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Bake: Scoop batter evenly into prepared muffin tin. Bake for 30 minutes or until set and the tops are slightly brown.
  • Cool: Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for 10 minutes then remove to cool completely.

Variations

  • Substitute walnuts or pecans for the chocolate chips.
  • Add flax seed to the batter for added fiber.
  • Dried fruit or cranberries would be delicious in these muffins!

Allow the muffins to cool for a couple of minutes before releasing them from the pan to cool completely.

Store muffins in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

I like to serve these muffins warm with a drizzle of maple syrup and butter. Enjoy!

  • Any time I can have chocolate for breakfast I am one happy gal 🙂 These look fantastic- need to try them soon!

  • Mary

    I don’t see chocolate chips listed as an ingredient. How much do you recommend including?

  • Mary Haussler

    The ingredients say “1/4 Honey”. One quarter what?

  • Hi Mary,

    Sorry about that. I have updated the recipe. I recommend adding 1 cup.

    Thanks!

    I know this may sound really weird but I have a thing about coconut and coconut oil….I absolutely hate it!!! Like, the smell alone makes me nauseous. What other oil can I use instead of coconut oil?

    I can’t wait to try these. I am currently in college and I am currently on a path to weight loss and a grab-and-go is perfect for me!

    Update:

    They just got of the oven and oh my goodness!! These are phenomenal!! I have always made banana chocolate muffins but I never “healthified” them and made them without flour and I must say, these are now my go-to. I made these for a pre-workout snack so I am gonna try my best not to eat them all at once lol. Thank you so much!

    I just made these muffins (only with almond milk) and wow they are delicious! I will definetly be making them again. My kids also stamped them with their seal of approval!
