I’m in love with these. These banana chocolate chip oatmeal muffins are large, moist, and a little fudgy from the mashed banana. The texture is so perfect in my opinion and the taste is incredible!

The ingredients are on point, too! Made with only simple, healthy food, they’re naturally gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free.

I always recommend buying organic oats if possible, as oats are one of the biggest offenders for glyphosate, the main ingredient in RoundUp that’s been shown to cause cancer and other health issues. Try to avoid big-name oatmeal brands like Quaker Oats as they’ve been shown to have EXTREMELY high amounts of this toxic chemical.

Ingredients for Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins:

  • Ripe bananas
  • Oats
  • Baking soda
  • Almond milk, or other non-dairy milk of choice
  • Maple syrup
  • Eggs
  • Chocolate chips
  • Cinnamon

If you want to ensure the recipe is gluten-free/dairy-free/refined sugar-free, make sure you choose the appropriate chocolate chips! The ones I used in this recipe were the Enjoy Life Foods Dark Chocolate Chips which are dairy-free/gluten-free/vegan but do have some cane sugar. These Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips are refined sugar-free.

How to Make Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins:

These are super simple to make! Start by preheating the oven and greasing two muffin pans with coconut oil, or some other healthy oil (this recipe makes a big batch so you will most likely need two pans).

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Then pour the mix into the muffin pans and top with additional chocolate chips and cute little banana slices like I did if desired!

Note that that batter comes out very “liquidy,” but it bakes great and that’s why these muffins end up being so soft and moist.

Bake in the oven, let cool, and enjoy!
