If you have some brown bananas staring at you from your counter, don’t let them go to waste. You also don’t have to make fattening banana bread like most people say you do. Use those bananas for these Banana Oat Blueberry Muffins and you’ll have a delightful, waist slimming treat. Not only do you use up the bananas, but you have muffins bursting with berry flavor. They’re perfect for a busy morning when you want a flavorful breakfast but don’t have a lot of time. They’ll last you the week, so you can have a quick breakfast or snack every day! I love these warmed slightly, with a bit of spray butter.

They’re delicious, filling, nutritious, and just two Weight Watchers points each. You can vary the berries depending on what you prefer, or the season that you’re in. Oatmeal gives a great texture as well as a boost in fiber compared to what all purpose flour would give you. Fiber will help keep you full and satisfied, rather than causing a sugar crash later on.

Three reasons why you need to make this recipe!

Banana Oat Blueberry Muffins are perfect for an afternoon pick me up! 

I already mentioned breakfast or a mid-morning snack, but these are delicious in the afternoon too. Especially with a hot cup of coffee or tea – it’s the energizing snack you need to get you through the evening. 

Each muffin has two and a half grams of fiber. 

Fiber is essential when you’re in a fat loss phase. It’s great for keeping you full, as well as optimizing digestive health. Staying full is important when trying to decrease cravings. 

These flourless muffins are naturally gluten free. 

Made with fruit and healthy oatmeal, these muffins are naturally gluten free. Perfect for sending to school with your kids if you need an allergy friendly option.

Different ways to change up this recipe: 

  • I suggest using quick oats for the best texture. If you only have rolled oats, I recommend pulsing them in a food processor or blender until they have a smaller texture. 
  • Use any berries that you like! 
  • Add Lily’s No Sugar Added white chocolate chips for a fun twist if you have the points for it. 
  • Pumpkin puree can be used in place of banana during the fall if you like to experiment! 
  • You could substitute Swerve calorie free brown sugar to completely reduce all sugar content if you want. It will slightly alter the taste, but the berries do a great job of masking it.

Tips and Tricks for Making Banana Oat Blueberry Muffins: 

  • Store these muffins in the fridge for up to seven days, or freeze them in a ziplock freezer bag for up to three muffins. 
  • If you find your berries falling to the bottom of the muffins when baking, the next time you make them, try this method instead. Make the batter without stirring the berries into it. Divide the batter among the muffin tins and then place 3-4 berries on top of each muffin batter. It looks pretty this way too!

  1. Thanks so much for posting your recipe! I have been following you on Instagram for some time now and really enjoy all your creative ideas. I tried the muffins today and they were great! The only thing missing was when to add the brown sugar, I assumed it was after the vanilla :). Thanks for your recipes! Jaden:)

    1. Hi Jaden, thanks for catching that 😉 Although I try and proof read several times one out of every so many it never fails and I miss something lol.. luckily it doesn’t make a big difference.. just adding with the rest of the dry is good.. I am glad you liked them.. and thank you for your kind words 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    My new go-to breakfast!
    Plus, good news! Even with the fruit they are still on 2pp with the recipe builder, and two muffins is 5pp.
    Thanks so much for this great recipe!

  3. could you sub 1/4 c honey instead of brown sugar and maybe some 1 cup applesauce instead of 2 bananas just use one

    1. Hi there, not sure about the honey in replacement to the brown sugar, it will create a different texture..applesauce for banana would work.. best to try it out and see 🙂

  4. Looking forward to trying this recipe. I put it in ww recipe builder and it came out as 2 sp. Is the almond milk sweetened in your recipe?

  5. Looks yum! I have a bag of frozen blueberries in my freezer that need to be used. Could I sub frozen for fresh?

    1. Fruit definitely will add moisture to the muffins, maybe chop smaller and now but you can try strawberries, again small pieces

  6. Hi, After buying all the ingredients to make these muffins, i realized the Almond milk i purchased was sweetened. I was thinking of reducing the brown sugar to compensate for the sweetened milk. Do you know if this would work and any suggestions on how much I should reduce the sugar by?
