This recipe is for everyone who says they can’t cook. Or don’t have time. Or don’t like this or that. This is a no-excuses I want to start cooking at home more so I save money, eat health(ier), and don’t get hangry on my drive home from work recipe. It only requires 5 ingredients and 15 minutes on a Sunday afternoon. And we’ve all got that, right? I’ve even got a video showing you how easy they are.
Bananas + oats + flax + dates + baking soda –> that’s it! Mix them up in a blender/food processor. Bake. Eat.
Top them with chocolate chips, like I did. Because no banana bread is complete without chocolate. Or top them with walnuts, pecans, or blueberries. Or eat them plain. No matter what route you take, you will love them.
They’re perfectly poppable, with a hearty, rustic taste thanks to the oats and a slight sweetness from the bananas + dates. They’re more than healthy enough for breakfast, and satisfying enough to snack on post-lunch or dinner. I love the airiness they have, and their utter simplicity.
So maybe you’ve been wanting to start eating healthier, or cooking at home more. Maybe you need an after-school snack for your kids (or yourself!) without any junk in them. No matter what the reason, these wholesome, simple muffins are your permission to go for it. And if you have a few ripe bananas laying around that’s reason enough. Have an awesome weekend everyone! 🙂 enjoy a muffin or three, you deserve it.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
- Combine all ingredients except optional topping in food processorand mix.
- Pour into greased muffin tin. I use a glass cup (with cooking spray on the bottom) to push the batter down into each muffin tin well). Add toppings of choice.

Best enjoyed warm with a pat of butter or peanut butter.
