Banana Chocolate Chip Oat Muffins

Banana Chocolate Chip Oat Muffins that are super fluffy, moist and, best of all, healthy! Easy to make in just one bowl for easy clean up too! Now that’s what I’m talking about!

We love a good muffin in this house! My husband especially! There are so many delicious muffin recipes we have tried in the past but one of our favourites is my oat muffin base.

I have used it to make a variety of muffins by simply swapping out chocolate chips for fruits like blueberries and strawberries. It is such a versatile recipe that I keep coming back to it. I also keep coming back because its a recipe that I can feel good about. Without any refined sugar and some healthier swaps, I know that I am making the healthiest muffins I can for us.

If you have tried my Healthy Strawberry Banana Muffins and loved them as much as I do than you will absolutely love these muffins! They are based off the same recipe with only a couple minor tweaks. I love that I can make something feel brand new with just a few swaps!
