Banana Chip Blender Muffins
These banana chip blender muffins are the perfect way to start your day. Without ap flour, oil or butter, this recipe is Healthyish at its finest.

Ingredients Needed for Banana Chip Blender Muffins
Oats – You’ll need whole grain rolled oats for this recipe. DO NOT use steel cut or any other type of oats. Add the rolled oats to the blender and buzz them until a powder forms. You might have a few small pieces of oat in the powder which is fine.
Baking Soda / Salt – You’ll need baking soda as your leavening agent, and salt to active it.
Bananas – For this recipe, you’ll need 2 very ripe bananas depending on size. Make sure the skin is brown on the outside. This will give your muffins a delicious natural sweetness. It also makes the muffins very soft and fluffy.
Eggs – For this recipe, you’ll need two fresh eggs.
Applesauce – For this recipe, you’ll need unsweetened cinnamon applesauce. Option to use regular or sweetened too. However, the cinnamon adds a little extra flavor to the muffins.
Milk – You’ll need 2% milk for this recipe.
Vanilla – Add a touch of vanilla for some depth of flavor.
Dates – Add 5 pitted dates to this recipe. The dates add texture and natural sweetness.
Maple Syrup – For this recipe, you’ll need maple syrup. Be sure to use the good stuff.
Chocolate Chips – Once the batter is blended, option to fold some chocolate chips into the batter. You can also sprinkle a few on top of the muffins before baking.
How to Make Banana Nut Muffins
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a cupcake tin with non-stick baking spray. Option to use liners.
Add the oats to your blender and buzz them until a powder forms. Then, add the baking soda, salt, eggs, bananas, milk, maples syrup, dates, vanilla and applesauce. Buzz until a batter forms.
Pour in the prepred cupcake tin. Top with chocolate chips and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm and enjoy.
Store in a covered container on the countertop for three to four days. I like to add two pieces of bread to the container as it helps keep the muffins soft.
Heat in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to warm the muffin before enjoying. Option to freeze as well. Be sure the muffins have fully cooled and place them in an airtight bag. Freeze for up to 30 days. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight.

Okay I just made a quick batch of these before heading to bed tonight and my husband came out of bed to see what smelled so good! We definitely sampled one and they did not disappoint. I used the unsweetened plain applesauce because it’s what I had on hand.
Easy to make. Delicious!
These are amazing!! I used a monk fruit maple syrup and unsweetened cinnamon applesauce these are outstanding!
These came out delicious! Gave me a chance to use my homemade applesauce. Very easy to make! Thanks for the inspiration!
Love these! I’m having a hard time eating while in early pregnancy and these are great for that! I get a little sweet fix but don’t feel guilty about the ingredients. I also love the minimal clean up because it’s all in the blender!
