I’m not a fan of oatmeal and I can assure you you’ll never find overnight oats in my fridge 😉 but I do love using oats as the base of a good fresh baked muffin. These strawberry banana chocolate chip oatmeal muffins are so tasty and make a great quick grab and go breakfast. The Strawberries and chocolate chips provide just enough sweetness and they are only 3 freestyle smart points each.

Thank you so much for your awesome recipes, I am a weight watcher lifetime member and so happy to have discovered your website. This new version of the banana muffins (I call them banana split muffins) is the best yet. I just made my third batch and I subbed in dehydrated strawberries and they are really good.
Hi Susan, thank you for your kind words, so glad you enjoyed the muffins and thanks for the tip on the dehydrated strawberries, I’ll have to try that one day 🙂
Will it still work if I use water instead of milk?
It might, the texture might be slightly different
I’ve been on WW for 8 months and still have a ways to go. I just found your site today. These look really good!
Thanks Maria, I hope you enjoy the recipes 🙂 Good luck on your journey
These look great but I really dont like bananas, what would be a good substitute?
Hi Kimberly, banana’s are a main part of this recipe so not having them will change them altogether, you can try applesauce but I can’t guarantee they will bake the same
I just made a triple batch of these and they are delicious! Thank you for the recipe. Have you ever made them with paper muffin liners instead of spraying the muffin tin? I may have used papers b/c I am taking them to a brunch and the first batch came out really wet? Should I remove the papers while they are hot or just let them to dry? I’m afraid of when they go to pull the paper off the muffin will pull apart???? thanks!
Hi there, I never use paper liners because of the ingredients your using to replace sugars/ butter, they will stick 🙁
Can you use frozen strawberries?
You can but there is more water in frozen fruit and it might make a “mushier” muffin
Can I replace almond milk (unsweetened) with milk? Thanks for all your recipes Cant wait to try them
Yes almond milk will work fine, hope you enjoy the recipes 🙂
Hi Kate! Love your recipes! I made the Strawberry Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins today to have ready for breakfast on the go. My question is this…what, if anything, should I change to be able to not use the banana. My daughter is going to be joining me on this WW Lifestyle, as soon as she delivers my second grandbaby in Oct. She refuses to eat anything banana and I will be our food prep guru. Any suggestions to use the recipe but omit the banana?
Hi Karen, so glad you are enjoying the recipes and I hope your daughter has a safe (and speedy) delivery 🙂 good banana substitutes would be apple sauce and pumpkin
