Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Muffins Recipe

These chocolate chip banana oatmeal muffins are super easy to make. Filled with oats, whole wheat flour, and bananas - they're healthy enough for breakfast!

We love muffins around here. I make them on at least a weekly basis, usually more often than that.

And if I'm not making them, one of my kids are - they're so fast and easy to whip up that it's the perfect thing to suggest when the kids decide they want to bake something.

Also, muffins are usually at least moderately healthy, so I like having them around for quick and easy breakfasts, after school snacks, or to toss into the kid’s lunch boxes.

These chocolate chip banana oatmeal muffins are one of our favourites. I've been making this recipe for years, and it's usually the first thought in my head when I have over-ripe bananas to use up.

These muffins are filled with oats, whole wheat flour, and bananas, and make an easy breakfast that is filling and healthy. Yes, there are chocolate chips in them, but you could easily leave those out if you want them to be healthier - I just have this complete inability to make banana muffins without chocolate chips in them.

Sorry, it can't be helped. Banana muffins should have chocolate chips - that's just a fact.

Although I will admit that I would still happily eat one of these banana oatmeal muffins without the chocolate chips too.

It's always a debate what to make with ripe bananas when we have some, but these oatmeal muffins definitely win a large percentage of those debates.

These peanut butter banana blender muffins and these chewy chocolate chip banana cookies are also amazing though, if you are looking for something different.

But you should probably try these chocolate chip banana oatmeal muffins first - they do usually win out, after all.

Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Muffins Recipe

    12 Servings


  • 1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Canola Oil
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 3 Bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper or silicone liners, or lightly spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In another bowl whisk together the eggs, oil, milk, and mashed bananas.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Divide the batter between the muffin cups - they will be quite full. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
