Easy, Gluten-free Banana Oatmeal Muffins with Mix-Ins
Here’s how you make these banana oatmeal muffins:
- 2½ cups rolled oats
- 1½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
- 1 cup vanilla yogurt
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- ⅓ cup honey
- ½ cup nuts, finely ground
- 4 ripe bananas, mashed
- Optional: fresh blueberries or chocolate chips
- Heat oven to 400° F. Line muffin tin with paper liners.
- Blend about half of the oats in a blender to break them up (you'll get a little bit of oat "flour" this way - the measurement does not have to be exact, as long as your start off with 2½ cups of dry oats).
- Stir together oats, baking powder, baking soda, and flaxseed in a large mixing bowl. Mix in yogurt, eggs and honey until combined. Gently stir in nuts and mashed bananas.
- Pour muffin batter into muffin cups, filling just below the top of the cups. They won't rise much at all.
- If desired, add in a few blueberries or chocolate chips to some of the cups for some variety (we loved having the mix-ins!
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through (check for doneness by sticking a toothpick in the center. In should come out relatively clean).
- This recipe makes a little over a dozen banana oatmeal muffins, depending on how full the cups are filled and the size of your bananas.

Oh gosh, eggs in front of my nose, nevermind – looks lovely with or without them!
They’d be perfect for her, then!
They’re healthy AND yummy! I hope you love them!
Margot, actually there are 2 eggs in the recipe, but if you need to leave the eggs out, I’ve heard that you can substitute 3 tablespoons of water plus 1 tablespoon of ground flax for one egg.
Margot C says
The other cool thing about this recipe; no eggs!
