Oatmeal Raisin Banana Muffins

Tonight, Jay and I are off to a Double Date Night. Wahoo! We’re going to see a movie with our friends Joe & Kate, so since I’m not really sure what we’ll be having for dinner before we go, I thought I’d share today’s recipe creation with ya.


You don’t mind, right?


I had a few super-ripe bananas that needed to be used up today, so I went in search of a fun, new recipe to try. I almost ended up making these Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, but decided to wait until next time, after deciding on these.


These Oatmeal Raisin Banana Muffins completely blew me away. Think about combining the texture of a soft banana muffin, with the taste of a sweet and chewy oatmeal raisin cookie. Yes, that’s what you get with these little gems.

The flavor of the muffin alone is great, but once you add in the sweet oatmeal strudel topping…


Well, let’s just say that all attempts to stop at one flew right out the window. But hey, it’s ok. They’re healthified.



When I tell you that you should make these ASAP, I’m really not kidding. Just take my word for it.


Preferably, I enjoyed my muffins warm…


…with a little dab of melted butter.


But I can only imagine what they’d taste like with a little peanut butter. Oh gosh.


I have a feeling these aren’t going to be around too long…

Question for the Evening:

What’s your favorite way to enjoy bananas in a baked good? Muffin, bread, or cookie?

    Mm looks good as always! Any baked good with bananas is a winner in my book! I’m loving the banana bread which I recently made- super moist and flavorful (recipe on my blog if you’re interested)

    Well, your banana chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are one of my favorite recipes, but my ultimate banana indulgence is Banana Split Bread–banana bread with chocolate chips, walnuts, and a sugary topping! These muffins look absolutely fab! I will be making them soon! Thanks for the recipe! :)

    These muffins were a hit with my 21 month old boy, he is a fussy eater.
    I didn’t add the pumpkin spice cause i don’t have any, instead i put some blueberries and my left over chocolate chips i had.
    I just made another batch and put some coconut, so i can’t wait to taste them.
    Thanks for the recipe :-)
