Banana Oat Breakfast Muffins

breakfast-muffins

I found an easy recipe for healthy muffins that are perfect for breakfast. They’re packed with protein from greek yogurt and eggs and loaded with oaty fiber. Plus, they have no flour, oil or butter. I love that you put all the ingredients straight into the blender – no messy bowls to wash. Here’s my modified recipe, inspired by this oatmeal banana breakfast muffin recipe.

Banana Oat Breakfast Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups of rolled oats
  • 1 cup plain fat free Fage greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or line with paper liners.
  2. Put all ingredients except oats and chocolate chips into the blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Add oats one cup at a time, blending in between.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Pour batter into muffin tins and bake 15-20 minutes.
  6. Eat hot!
  7. Refrigerate extras and warm up in microwave or toaster for easy weekday breakfasts.

    My favorite bento boxes are from MUJI. I got them in Japan, but you can order them online here: http://www.muji.eu/pages/online.asp?Sec=11&Sub=45&PID=4593.

    Hi Elaina! I made these in heart-shaped tins for Valentine’s Day and they turned out great. Hopefully, we can have a struggle-free (and festive) breakfast tomorrow morning, thanks to you!

    Thank you so much for letting me know, Allison. You have no idea how happy that makes me. Did the kids like them?

    You too Kimmie — let me know how they turn out. Do you have good chocolate chips in Tokyo?

    I have another friend who made them a few days ago and gave them a thumbs up. My small contribution to spreading joy in the world — banana oat muffins :)
