You are going to want to make this healthy Banana Oat Muffins Recipe! They are low fat, moist, and delicious. You can make them ahead and freeze them.

Breakfast is a very important meal of the day because it often sets the tone for how you’ll feel and how you’ll perform.
This means that breakfast should:

  • Have good-for-you ingredients that give you that perfect energy boost for the day.
  • Keep you full until lunch.
  • It needs to taste amazing! Almost as good as the sugary cereals but healthier.

And you know what? These banana oat muffins check all the boxes, and they are portable. Because we are all busy and could use more healthy and portable breakfast ideas to-go. Check out how easy they are to make in this video.

Unlike most muffins, these banana oat muffins with yogurt are light and moist without using butter or oil in the recipe. Crazy but it works! Did I mention these muffins are also naturally gluten-free? Instead of all-purpose flour, we use regular old-fashioned oats. Of course, if you have Celiac’s you’re already checking that they are made in a gluten-free facility.

If you haven’t noticed, we have a thing for oats here on the blog. I mean who can resist Blueberry Baked Oatmeal or a Banana Split Oatmeal Bar for breakfast? The oats give a hearty feel to any breakfast.

What I love about using oats for breakfast, besides the nutritious properties, is that they are an inexpensive meal starter. If you are looking to reduce your food spending and make affordable fresh meals for your family, check out our Budgetize: Fresh Meals on a Bite-Size Program and Meal Plan.

Oh, and you can put away the mixer and mixing bowls. Nope, you won’t need them! These banana oat muffins are made in the blender, so all you have to do is toss in the ingredients, blend, pour, and bake! I know, that’s my favorite part too.

Since these come together so quickly, it’s easy to double the batch and freeze the unbaked muffins for later. So yes, these banana oat muffins can be frozen before baking and after being baked. This way, on extra-busy mornings all you have to do is remove them from the freezer and bake or simply heat them up. They hold up wonderfully.
