Oatmeal banana chocolate chip muffins

February 10, 2019

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 muffins to be filled with chocolate chips, not have fewer chips than I can count on one hand 😉 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.

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

      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?

      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

    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.

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

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

    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!

    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!

      Do you heat up or just defrost before eating?

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

    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!

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

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle January 18, 2020 at 4:17 pm

      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

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

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

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

      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

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