The best warm hearty banana oatmeal muffins are made with wholesome pantry staples in only ONE bowl for easy clean-up!
Y’all know that I LOVE banana anything!
However, my oldest son and my husband are less than enthusiastic unless it has chocolate chips in them. Luckily, my youngest is pretty much next-level obsessed with anything banana. We both devoured these muffins!
This is an old recipe based on my banana oatmeal bread and first posted as my chocolate chip banana oatmeal muffins (banana hater friendly). But I made them without chocolate chips and a new baking trick, so I thought I’d post these too!
Well, first of all, I made them in one bowl.
Second, I started the heat at 425 and immediately turned it down to 350 when I put them in. Apparently, the higher heat is supposed to make your muffins rise or pop. I would say it gave them more lift! Let me know what you think!
How to Make Banana Oatmeal Muffins
Mash bananas. Add wet ingredients and mix well. Add oats and let them sit for 4-5 minutes while you put things away. This softens the oats, which is very important!
Then add the rest of the ingredients and transfer to a muffin tin. Easy peasy!
