Chocolate Banana Baked Oatmeal Muffins

Chocolate. It’s hard to go wrong with a recipe that calls for cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Even better when it’s not horrible for you. :-) We don’t eat gluten free but I do try to watch how much wheat we use and these are a yummy treat with no flour. I also don’t need a ton of sweetener in my pastries, so if your family is used to things pretty sweet just up the honey.

This isn’t like a traditional muffin. It is a cross between a muffin and oatmeal but we really like them. Great for breakfast or snack. They probably would even make a tasty dessert served warm with whipped cream on them (especially if you added a few extra chocolate chips). I will even eat them right out of the freezer. But I’m weird like that. :-)

Chocolate Banana Baked Oatmeal Muffins


I don’t like my muffins super big, so I make 12 regular muffins and 12-18 mini muffins. Use the longer baking times if you are making larger muffins.
