We love baking and muffins are always a winner, especially if we have past their best bananas that need to be used up. We’ve started making breakfast muffins as a quick and easy start to the day or to have as a snack and these Oaty Fruity Banana Breakfast Muffins are some of our favourites.

What do we need for these breakfast muffins?

For this banana muffin recipe we use three overripe bananas, a few oats and dried fruit. Our first choice is always a mix of dried cranberries and raisins but we often just use a cheap dried fruit mix or whatever we have in the cupboard. Any dried fruit works for this recipe – you can just throw it all in.

The children love having these muffins for breakfast – they’re a great way to start the day. They’re also perfect for lunchboxes and great for taking on a day out, as part of a picnic or a great snack for any time of the day. They’re really moreish, taste healthy and are a great alternative to buying an expensive muffin from a coffee shop on your way to work!

Are these healthy banana muffins?

Although these banana oat muffins taste healthy and look healthy, they do have the usual cake ingredients of sugar and butter in them as well as the natural sugars in the fruit content. If you wanted a healthier option, you could use less sugar, leave the sugar out or use a whole wheat flour instead.

If you’re looking for other recipes to try give our banana bread, fruity banana loaf or banana pancakes a try. You can see all our overripe banana recipes here.
