Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Blender Muffins – gluten free, healthy, muffins that will get your day started right! Super quick and easy and the freezer well too!
I am not a huge breakfast person. Usually in the morning I like to grab a Clif Bar (homemade) or something like that. I don’t want to take the time to eat a big breakfast, even if it is healthy. These Healthy Breakfast Bowls are great, but I am just not usually that motivated or hungry in the morning.
So muffins are kind of my thing. I would eat chocolate chip muffins every day if I could. But I know they aren’t good for me. Which is why I like this chocolate banana muffins. They are naturally gluten free muffins (assuming you use gluten free oats) and they are so good.
I am a chocolo-holic to the core. So getting chocolate for breakfast is my kind of day! These blender muffins come together in just minutes, so they are great to make a double batch of and have in the freezer. All of the ingredients just get dumped into a blender and mixed. Then pour into muffins cups and bake. Could not be simpler.
These are naturally gluten free muffins which is great if you are watching out for that. They don’t have any add oil or refined sugar. There is honey added to the recipe, but you could swap that for agave or maple syrup if you wanted. And then just a few chocolate chips are added to the top, so you could do the dairy free chocolate if you wanted.
I am pretty sure I have said this before, but breakfast is the hardest meal of the day for me. I struggle to find something quick and easy, that is still healthy. I have done my fair share of smoothies, but I just haven’t found one I can do every day. Although this Kiwi & Spinach Smoothie gets repeated a lot!
So these healthy chocolate muffins are one of my favorite things to have in the freezer. I can just take 1 or 2 out and microwave them until they are warm, and breakfast is served. That is my kind of morning!
My Chocolate Oatmeal Banana Muffins have been very popular for a long time. They are very similar but without the peanut butter or the chocolate base. Plus they have yogurt in them for some added protein. So given my love of a chocolate I had to see how it would workout. And I am so glad I did.
Instead of yogurt, they have a base of peanut butter. These are very dense, almost fudgy. . These healthy chocolate muffins freeze really well to, so you can just take out what you need in the morning and microwave for a hot and fresh muffin. Plus blender muffins are just so darn easy to make!!
