There are few things more satisfying than a good muffin in the morning or afternoon. But as a dietitian, I know all too well that most store bought muffins are severely unbalanced. They’re usually loaded with sugar, high in calories, and probably won’t leave you feeling energized.

That’s why I love these blender banana oatmeal muffins! They’re nourishing and well-balanced, but they’re just as satisfying as a muffin you’d grab on-the-go. And they’re made in a blender so they’re incredibly easy to prepare.

Add these to your next meal prep for a sweet and nutritious snack!

Why you’ll love them

Easy: These blender banana muffins are made in a blender, which means they’re easy to make and even easier to clean up!

Healthy: The ingredients include oats, bananas, and greek yogurt. They’re full of nutrition and on the lower-calorie side, too.

Delicious: I don’t want a healthy recipe to taste too healthy. These blender muffins are nutritionally balanced but also so moist and satisfying.

Ingredient notes

Here’s what you’ll need to make this recipe:

  • Bananas — make sure they’re super ripe because they help sweeten the muffins
  • Old fashioned oats — also known as large flake oats or rolled oats
  • Eggs — sub flax eggs if desired
  • Olive oil — sub melted butter
  • Maple syrup — sub honey, brown sugar, or white sugar
  • Baking powder and baking soda
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt
  • Vanilla extract
  • Plain greek yogurt — skyr yogurt works too

Mix-ins

If desired, you can add some mix-ins! These blender banana oatmeal muffins would go great with a handful of added chocolate chips, walnuts, or pecans.

Simply stir any mix-ins into the batter after it’s been blended, or add on top of each muffin before baking.

Dietary restrictions

Gluten-free: Use certified gluten-free oats.

No eggs: Sub eggs for flax eggs.

Step-by-step instructions

Adjust oven rack to middle position and pre-heat your oven to 350 F.

Bake for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean with just a few moist crumbs. 

Let muffins cool for 10 minutes in the muffin tin before transferring to a cooling rack.

How to serve

Eat these muffins on their own, or cut in half and spread butter, peanut butter, or almond butter on top.

For a more balanced snack, serve muffins with a source of protein like greek yogurt or a handful of nuts.

Frequently asked questions

Can I substitute old fashioned oats for quick oats?

Yes, you can substitute quick oats in this recipe! Be careful not to overpack your oats when measuring to prevent any textural changes in your muffins.
