Banana walnut oatmeal muffins

December 1, 2017

I love a good oatmeal muffin, I can’t eat oatmeal as a meal, just the texture of sloppy oatmeal is something I have never been able to get over lol πŸ˜‰ but put that stuff in a muffin and I am all over it!! Muffins are a great grab and go breakfast or afternoon pick me up snack and these banana walnut oatmeal muffins are delicious!! The little drizzle of honey on top leaves a satisfying sweetness in your mouth after every bite.. I have a fellow weight watcher friend that just happened to stop by on baking day and she gave them two thumbs up (thanks Victoria). These tasty muffins are just 3 smart points each..

    These look delish! My question is CAN you use quick oats? I have everything in the house except I only have quick oats. Thanks!

    Do you think fat free Greek yogurt could replace the milk?

    I must say I thought I was the only person that felt this way about oatmeal. I can’t deal with the texture of regular oatmeal. I was so excited to find this recipe. Just put in the oven. I can’t wait to taste.

    This recipe doesn’t call out using low point subs like Truvia brown sugar or almond milk, am I right?

      Hi Erica, I’m not too sure what you are asking, you can substitute if you’d like

    These look yummy ! Would the Freestyle points change if the nuts were omitted ?? We have a family member with nut allergies …also can I leave out the honey and not add syrup or anything in its’ place ?? thanks

      Hi Doris, the nuts are 6Sp and the honey is 4SP, you’d need to replace the honey with something though, maybe add an extra egg white or even a little milk , hope that helps

    I hate oatmeal. The texture gets me every time I think I should try it again. So I gave these a try and have to say when they are warm they are delicious. Everyone really likes them in my house. They have become a regular for us. I make double batches and freeze them and they freeze really well.

    I just tried these muffins and they are so yummy!! I did substitute the brown sugar with Sukrin Brown Sugar Substitute. Since I haven’t tried them with “real” brown sugar, I don’t know if it tastes a little different but they are excellent even with the substitute. AND by subbing the brown sugar, the Smart Points dropped to 2 instead of 3.

    the recipe doesn’t say what type of oatmeal. I have old fashioned, will this work?

      Yes they will work, I usually use quick oats but any are fine

    Just made these and they are so delicious, can’t believe they are so low in points. I didn’t add all the brown sugar on top and when I put it into the recipe calculator they came out to 1 SP on Purple! Thanks for posting it, these will certainly go in my rotation. I’m eating my muffin this morning broken up into fat free greek yogurt with extra cinnamon on top!

    These are great! It’s so hard finding WW friendly and toddler friendly baked goods that don’t have artificial sweetener in them! I’m freezing half of them but how do you recommend storing them? Fridge or is the counter fine?

      Hi Brooke, sorry might be too late in answering for this batch but typically after day 1 I store all muffins either in the fridge or freezer, due to ingredients used they do best in the fridge (if not freezing them)
