I was in a muffin baking kinda mood and I realized I didn’t have just a simple oatmeal chocolate chip banana muffin. I was also in chocolate kinda mood haha and I wanted these muffinsΒ to be filled with chocolate chips, not have fewer chips than I can count on one hand πŸ˜‰ These oatmeal chocolate banana muffins are delicious, big and fluffy and filled with lots of delicious chocolate with every bite! Makes 12 muffins at just 4 smart points each on WW freestyle.

  1. These sound scrumptious but dealing with banana allergy. Anything I could substtitute?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Bananas make up a big part of the recipe so I can’t guarantee the same outcome if you do replace but substitutes could be more apple sauce, pumpkin

    How do you think these would work using Swerve brown sugar instead of regular brown sugar?

    • Drizzle Reply

      If you like swerve then I think they will be fine, I have never used it so I can’t give an honest answer sorry

  3. I made these today but replaced the chips with pecans (just because I don’t usually like fruit and chocolate together). They turned out amazing. Thank you for the recipe.

  4. These look like something my very picky teen might eat. Is there anything I could do to increase the protein? Thanks.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Traci, I bet you can sneak in some protein powder if you want, just leave a little flour out in replace of it

  5. I really enjoyed this recipe. It was just the right amount of sweet. Thanks!

  6. These are teen approved. I made them and they are almost gone now. It’s only been a day. Great flavor and easy to make.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Haha I love hearing that! I have a teen too and she enjoyed them πŸ™‚ thanks for sharing

          Hi Cindy, you are right!! Typo on my behalf, thanks for letting me know I updated it

  7. I made this recipe (double batch) to use up the oatmeal that’s been sitting in the pantry and some bananas that turned too fast. I didn’t like it – I LOVED it. These muffins are delicious and taste just as good thawed from the freezer. I used (white) Splenda because we have a diabetic in the family and I can’t find the brown sugar variety; seriously delicious! Thanks Kate!

      Hi Anna, Yay..so glad you loved them πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing that splenda worked just as good πŸ™‚

  8. I made these a few weeks ago. My husband has asked me to make more! I froze half of them and grab one for a quick snack before my exercise class or for a yummy late afternoon snack!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Lisa, so glad you both enjoyed them πŸ™‚ they have easily become one of my favorites!

      • Drizzle Reply

        I personally would probably pop in toaster or air fryer even for a few minutes to heat up but you don’t have to

  9. I made these last night. I used Sukrin Brown sugar to lower the ponts to 3 pts each. They are wonderful! Taste great and come together quickly!

      Hi Lynn, so glad you enjoyed the muffins and thanks for the tip πŸ™‚

  10. I recall this recipe requiring egg whites. Was this updated to include whole eggs?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Nope it always called for 2 eggs, it was pre-smart points that I used egg whites more often in baking since eggs had points, but you can use egg whites if you wish

    Hello!

    Love your recipes! How many points are these muffins without the chocolate chips?

    • Drizzle Reply

      So glad you are enjoying them, I think the chocolate chips add 1 point to the muffins

  12. These are delicious. I just calculated the SP and I got 5 for Green. Did I do something wrong?

    • Drizzle Reply

      SO glad you enjoyed them, did you use the nutritional numbers or build the recipe in the App? The numbers I give incl all ingredients even zero-point ones like banana, I build the recipes in the WW app to determine points then I build the recipes in MyFitness pal to determine nutritional numbers, if you did build the recipe in your app and still got 5 it could just come down to the different brand of something used

  13. This recipe is so good. I used dark chocolate chip and sprinkle cinnamon on top. Thank you!
