Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins
Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins – This post wins the award for the longest title ever! I know I say this about almost everything, but these are my new favorite muffins, hands down.

I love peanut butter
I love bananas
I LOVE chocolate chips
I love oatmeal

It’s just meant to be.

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins
Actually, these are mini muffins. Whenever I am faced with the choice between the regular sized muffin pan or the mini sized pan, I always pick the mini pan. Would do you like best?

Also, I hardly ever use muffin liners. Are those a thing of the past or am I the only one who doesn’t use them?

With fall right around the corner, I’ve been eyeing some projects I want to try: cheesecloth floating ghosts, homemade caramel apples, a ruffled felt wreath, and cinnamon stick or twig wrapped candles.

And I’ve already been churning out the pumpkin baked goods, so stock up on canned pumpkin because I’ll be sharing those soon!

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 & 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt (optional)
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt (could use greek)

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and brown sugar, set aside.
  3. In a food processor (or blender/mixer) combine yogurt, bananas, melted butter, peanut butter, milk, egg and vanilla until very well blended. Mixture will be fairly thick.
  4. Combine the wet with the dry ingredients, stir until combined but do not over mix.
  5. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop batter into a greased muffin tin (regular size or mini).
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes for minis and 18-22 minutes for regular sized or until a toothpick comes out clean.

You could easily swap out the chocolate chips for peanut butter chips, dark chocolate chips, or wait for it.. even mini reese’s pieces.

I used mini chocolate chips for my mini muffins and if Ryan were writing he would say it’s because I love everything super tiny, just like me because I am only 5’2″

Either way you make these, they are going to be delicious.

  1. Do you use old fashioned oatmeal or quick?
    Phyllis@grandparentsplus.com

    • Hi Phyllis, great question – I used steel oats, so not quick cooking, but I don’t think it would make a big difference if you used quick cooking. It just depends if you like the taste and texture of hearty oats, then use old fashioned or steel oats.

  2. These look delicious! I might have to try these!

  34. Just made these and OMG, they are amazing!!! I made just as you directed and my son who claims to hate bananas ate two and wants more. THANKS for a great recipe.

  35. I really like how the toppings (is that what I should call them?) of your muffins turned out. They look like they are overflowing with goodness! I have yet to try oat in my muffins and you have just convinced me that the combination sound good! I do have some bananas and chocolate chips sitting on the counter, guess I will give these muffins a shot! Wish me luck! :)

  37. So glad I found this recipe! I have two mushy bananas on my counter ready to be made into muffins! I’m going to take a risk and sub out the butter for coconut oil. Fingers crossed they come out just as good as yours look. Thanks so much for sharing. :)

  38. Love everything about your recipe ! And I also prefer tiny {mini} sweet treats :-) {pinned!]

  39. I cannot wait to make these for my parrots (leaving the chocolate chips out) for a change of their regular muffins (birdy bread) I make for them. I will add some choc chips to some for me. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  45. Hi this recipe looks yummy. Dying to try it. I noticed on your homepage that you mention you have a gluten allergy. Do you use gluten free flour with these? I’d love to try making these gluten free.

    • Yep I used gluten free flour. It’s a local brand that I use, but most gluten free flours can be used as a 1 for 1 substitute, so 1 cup all purpose = 1 cup gluten free.

  46. My daughter just found out after five years she has grown out of her peanut allergy, but we have also discovered she does not like peanuts or peanut butter, but she loves chocolate /banana mini muffins. Been looking for a way to sneak the PB which she has to have now, this looks perfect! Thanks for sharing.

  47. Hi Beth, I’m Connie I just added you in my g+ circle. These muffins look fantastic. I downloaded the recipe but I’m going to pin it as well. Thank you for sharing. Happy New Year!

    • Hi Connie! Thanks so much for doing all of that! I am heading over to see if you have a FB page!

  49. Did not rise very well. What could have happened?

    • Hi Megan – oh dear. I haven’t add anyone report this problem. Did you add all the correct amount of the ingredients? Also did you bake until set?

  50. Beth, Thanks for this awesome recipe. My teenage daughter and I just finished baking these, and they turned out perfect and so tasty!!

  52. We really liked these~I was able to make 18 large muffins :) Thank you so much for the great recipe!! My daughter loved helping me on this icy, snowy day!

  53. Oats are always a great addition to muffins! They add wonderful texture and pair so well with pb and bananas.

  54. This looks so good! I’m with you- bananas, chocolate, oatmeal and peanut butter? what’s not to like! Thanks for sharing your recipe, I can’t wait to try it- following you on facebook and google+!

  58. These truly look incredible! any chance you have the nutrition info for them?
    love the recipes and pictures!

    • Hi Chris, I don’t have the nutritional information, but I am sure you can find a website online to enter the information into to get that.

  59. Beth, these were delicious! Thank you, my little four year olds really enjoyed these (I did too!). I wanted to see what they would taste like with applesauce instead of butter, and using half white whole wheat flour and half all-purpose (in place of all white flour). It created a hearty muffin, with a chewy texture. We loved your recipe, thank you so much for sharing AND for helping me to feed my family a healthy and yummy breakfast and snack.

  60. Hello! I just made these with steel cut oats. I never baked with these oats and I love the added texture!!
