Mini muffins are a great little snack to have on hand, these trail mix muffins are packed with so much goodness.
These little bite-size muffins make a great grab-and-go breakfast or a “pick me up” afternoon snack. They are packed with oats, nuts, seeds, and raisins. They are simple to whip up and smell delicious coming out of the oven. They freeze great too. Makes 36 mini muffins at just 33 calories each and 1PP if following WW.
- Almond milk
- vanilla extract
- Brown sugar
- Baking powder
- Coconut flakes
- Pumpkin seeds
The batter will be slightly watery and that is ok. Once baked they firm up. If you wish you can make these into full-size muffins, I’m not sure if the recipe will yield 12 regular-size muffins but it will be close to 12.
Be sure to spray the muffin tin with some nonstick cooking spray, I suggest you do not use mini muffin liners, they will stick to those.
You can freeze these muffins, just dethaw when ready to eat. I like to pop them in the toaster oven to warm them up a little and they even very slightly crisp up which I love.

If you don’t like raisins could I use cranberries instead?
Sure can 🙂
i just found your recipes i love you! thats a lot of work. keep going
Hi Margie, I hope you enjoy all of the recipes 🙂
I’m wondering if I can substitute unsweetened applesauce in your muffin recipes for the banana – I do not like banana baked into anything – I loathe banana bread – any thoughts!
Hi, I alwasy suggest people just go ahead and try it, a lot of my recipes call for both, just less apple sauce, so I would think it will be ok..
Since i do not have a Mini muffin pan could i possibly spread this mix into a pan and bake if so what size pan and how long do i bake ‘em
Hi there, you can try, I have only baked in a mini muffin tray, I would just check them at the same time and then add more time if need be
Could i substitute the sugar with anything else?
Do you mean a sweetener? You could opt to leave it out
Can you replace the almond milk with say skim milk?
Hi! In this recipe, are you using unsweetened almond milk? Do the bananas need to be ripe? Lastly, does it matter if I use quick oats or old-fashioned? I love your recipes!!! Your food ideas look delicious but within daily nutrition allowances. I’m definitely giving them a try. Tonight, I’m making your french onion chicken. TU!
HI Lisa, yes I always use unsweetened, Yes to ripe banana’s, they work best, and any oats should be fine, mine are quick oats 🙂 I hope you continue to enjoy the recipes 🙂
How many points in a regular size muffin tin
Sorry not too sure, you would need to do the math based on how many you make
I’m new to Weight Watchers. Your website was recommended in one of my meetings. Thank you for the wonderful recipes. Thank you for calculating smart points.
Hi Mary, you are very welcome, I hope you find some recipes you enjoy 🙂
I love your recipes. One question though if I leave out the almonds and coconut could you tell me how many calories they would be?
Hi Melissa, glad you are enjoying the recipes, sorry I’m not too sure, I only built the recipe as per ingredient list, maybe you could build it on my fitness pal leaving those things out and it will give you all the nutri info
I have a question about using bananas. I thought I read that the only way a banana is zero points is if you eat it whole. If you use it in smoothies or baked goods, it’s 5 points per banana. Any thoughts? Thanks so much!
Before smart points came out they did have you count for banana’s in recipes then they did some changes when old smart points came out and said fruit in recipes did not count, I personally say do what works best for you, If you don’t count it and it works and you are losing then stick with it, but if you feel it is keeeping you from losing (or maintaining) then start counting for it, I’m not a 100% by the book girl, I do what works best for me and my body 🙂
