These super simple, gluten-free, healthy banana chocolate chip blender muffins are not only delicious, but so easy to make. Just blend a few simple pantry staples into the blender, pour and bake for a healthy breakfast treat! (gluten-free, nut-free)


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 medium very ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Line a muffin tin with paper or silicone liners, then spray liners with oil.
  2. Place all dry ingredients (oats, brown sugar, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, and salt) in a high-powered blender, such as a Vitamix. Blend until a fine powder forms.
  3. Add wet ingredients (bananas, eggs, yogurt, and vanilla) and blend until smooth and well combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop batter into muffin tin using a large scoop or small measuring cup (about 1/4 cup of batter per muffin). Top with additional chocolate chips if desired.
  5. Bake muffins for 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before removing muffins to a cooling rack.


  • Use certified gluten-free oats if necessary.
  • You can use coconut sugar in place of the brown sugar if you'd like.
  • The flaxseed can be omitted if you don't have it.
  • Line your muffin tin with paper liners and spray the liners. Because these muffins have no added oil, they need a little bit of help not sticking to the paper.
  • Blend up the dry ingredients, then add the wet. Stop to scrape down the edges as needed to get a smooth batter.
  • The muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Try not to over-bake them so that they stay moist and tender.
  • Because these muffins don't have a lot of sugar, they won't keep at room temperature for more a couple of days. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator, or freeze them to take out and thaw as needed.
