Made these yesterday, Lindsey. Did you use the baking powder? Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth and well combined. This bread is so easy with so few healthy ingredients and tasty and I look forward to baking it again in near future and may play around with the add ins. Took twice the time to bake than the suggested time. Have you ever dipped banana slices in a little maple syrup as a snack?!
Amazingly Wholesome 5 Ingredient Banana Bread Muffins
Spray a cup mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. In an electric stand mixer or large mixing bowl, add the mashed banana, oats, baking powder and egg. Mix or stir until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chunks.
Divide batter evenly among prepared mini muffin cups. Top each muffin with an additional chocolate chunk, if desired. Bake for minutes or until the muffin tops look set and oats are just starting to crisp on top.
Try to avoid over-baking so the banana in the muffins doesn't dry out. They should freeze great Just let them cool completely and store in an airtight, freezer-safe container or plastic bag for months. You could bake them in a regular muffin pan or you could press the batter into a square baking pan and then cut into bars. Hello, can you blend up the oats first before mixing the rest of the ingredients?
Or could you even blend everything but the CC? Yes, you can blend up everything except the chocolate chips and then just stir them in. I have several flourless banana bread recipes here on the blog that are made this way and they turn out great. The texture will be smoother, but will still taste great!
The melty chocolate chunks are calling my […]. This is especially helpful if you have a less-than-awesome blender. I love already. A little thing about me: I also love food photography. I wrote an ebook that can help you learn your camera and I also teach food photography workshops in our Minneapolis studio.

I think the butter is a great idea since we need fat to be healthy especially developing babies! Breast milk is super high in cholesterol for that reason! Ok, I trust you when you say they are delicious. Needing more on-the-go breakfast options that are not croissants.
Also, healthy things that are not cardboard. When it comes to recipes that use dates as substitution for added sugar, could I use prunes instead? I never seem to remember to buy dates, but have a half bag of prunes in my fridge!
I already commented but I just made these. These were as easy to make as a smoothie. They popped out of the pan with ease. And you were right, super tasty.
My only suggestion is that if you have a cheap blender like I do, opt for the food processor. Silly question, but do the bananas actually need to be brown? Hi Karen, I just made these muffins, and only had one really ripe banana too, so I had to use two just barely ripe ones as well. The muffins still turned out well, I think the only difference is that they would be sweeter with riper bananas. Oh my, my mouth is watering at the thought of these!!
Looking forward to seeing your healthy recipes in January. I love healthy recipes.. Looks delicious especially with the banana. Made these yesterday, Lindsey. Love you 5 ingredient dishes and make the chili one regularly. These muffins were a hit and so quick and easy! My husband is my sous chef aka dishwasher and he appreciated the one bowl food processor to clean. Made these last night and they are exactly what I have been missing in my life!!
Great protein snack with all natural sugar and they taste fantastic! My husband loved them too! It is one of the recipes are very tasty! I love this recipe one.
By the way, thanks for the recipe. Super yummy and so easy to make! Made them this morning to detox a bit after a week of over indulgence back home! Only did two things different than the recipe: My ten-month old son loves them, too — sans chocolate chips. Just made these muffins! Looking forward to your January recipes! Can you replace the bananas with pumpkin purée? What would be the measurement difference? These are delicious and so easy!
Thanks for another great recipe! Made a batch yesterday in mini muffin pa. Unbelievable — no sugar? Really good, whole family enjoyed them.
