Banana Applesauce Oat Muffins

I made these for Miss F to have a borderline healthy breakfast muffin on hand. And I added the chocolate chips to ensure she would eat all the healthiness of them. Having eaten one about halfway through the cooling process, I am sure if she is not a fan, I will be more than happy to eat them for her. These were amazing. They are very moist and full of flavor. I might try them next time with all whole wheat flour since there is such a minor amount. My best advice: make these now!
Banana Applesauce Oat Muffins
printable recipe

1 egg
3 mashed ripe bananas
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup natural applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup quick cooking oats
¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners.

In a large bowl, combine egg, bananas, brown sugar, applesauce and vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift together the flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir the oatmeal into the flour mixture. Gently stir flour mixture into the banana mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into the prepared muffin cups.

Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove muffins from pan and place on a wire rack to let cool before serving.

These look delicious! They'd be great in the summer with pureed fresh peaches instead of applesauce.

I made these and LOVED them. I used only whole wheat flour and added a quarter cup of unsweetened coconut. So very yum. Thank you!

Made these using only wholemeal flour and didn't use the chocolate chips. They were a bit of a treat to make that didn't hurt my healthy eating, but I want to eat the whole batch they are so delicious. I calculated the calories at 153 calories each muffin without the chocolate chips so it's not too bad if I sneak another one.

These are an absolute treat! I was concerned about adding the oats (I used rolled oats) but the end result was so moist. My kids are gobbling these up. I ate just one and I'm full. So hearty but I can feel good giving these to my family.

These are very yummy! Although, a bit more salt than I like. I also added walnuts that work very nicely!

Good taste but mine didn't rise.

These are ok. Mine came out a little chewy. I think there is just too much going on. I tried a different recipe a few days ago that didn't have oats (i had a LOT of brown bananas) and i liked that one a lot better. This recipe has more going on nutritionally, though, with the addition of oats.
