These muffins are bananas

These muffins are essentially the nutritional equivalent of a bowl of oatmeal, so I think they can be enjoyed all week long and not just on "breakfast dessert weekend (TM)".

I got the recipe from and made almost no modifications.


  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 3 ripe bananas (I freeze any bananas that are looking too ripe and then just microwave them right before baking these)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup dates
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup no sugar added dried cranberries (I get these from Trader Joe's)
  • 1/4 cup 100% cacao chips (again no sugar from Trader Joe's)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put all the ingredients minus the cranberries and chips into a blender. Blend until smooth and mix in the cranberries and chips.
  3. Put mixture in a 12 cup muffin tin and bake 15-20 minutes.
