(You can of course also make them right before you serve…that works too!)

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the texture like in these muffins when they’re baked?

The final muffins are like a cross between baked oatmeal cups and a standard muffin. They are very moist (which makes them easy for toddlers to eat), yet not quite as fluffy as a traditional bakery muffin.

Can I make these ahead of time?

We love recipes like this that are easy to whip up in just a few minutes and that store incredibly well in the fridge—these muffins taste just as good warm out of the oven as they do chilled a few days later!

Can I make this recipe without a food processor?

If you use quick oats and mash the banana really well by hand, you can simply stir the ingredients together in a bowl.

What other fruit can I use in this recipe?

In place of the peach you could try raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, or nectarine.

How to Store

Let cool in the pan, then transfer to an airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Serve cold or warmed slightly.

Best Tips for Success

  • Use ripe bananas, with brown spots if you can. (They’re also fine with yellow bananas.)
  • You can use frozen or fresh peaches.
  • To make them dairy-free, use melted coconut oil in place of the butter.
  • To make them gluten-free, use certified gluten-free rolled oats.
  • Set aside a few pieces of peach to place on top to make them look extra pretty if you’re feeling fancy!

Calories 146kcal
Servings 12 muffins

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 small very-ripe bananas (about 1 ½ cups sliced banana)
  • 1/4 cup butter (melted and slightly cooled)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 cups diced peach

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 12-cup muffin with nonstick spray.
  • Place all ingredients into a food processor except the peach. Process, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed, until smooth and well blended, about 30-45 seconds.
  • Stir in the peaches. (If using frozen peaches, warm for 30 seconds in the microwave. Cut into smaller pieces using kitchen shears.)
  • Divide the batter among the prepared muffin tin, using just over ¼ cup batter per muffin.
  • Bake for 26-28 minutes or until the edges are just starting to turn golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the centers comes out cleanly. Let cool in the pan.
  • Serve slightly warm or chilled.

Notes

  • Serve or store in the fridge for up to 5 days and serve chilled. Freeze cooled muffins in a zip top freezer bag with as much air removed as possible for up to 3 months.
  • Dairy-free: Use melted coconut oil or almond butter in place of the butter.
  • Gluten-free: Use certified gluten-free rolled oats.
  • To make without a food processor, use quick oats and mash the banana really well by hand with a fork or potato masher. Then stir the ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Use ripe bananas, with brown spots if you can. (They’re also fine with yellow bananas.)
  • You can use frozen or fresh peaches.
  • You can omit the coconut and sub in additional rolled oats if desired.
  • Let cool in the pan to allow them to firm up. They are very soft when right out of the oven and may not hold together if you try to remove them from the pan when still hot.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • Serve cold or warmed slightly.
  • To bake these as mini muffins, reduce the baking time down to 16-18 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

    These were amazing! Clean, simple, tasty. We used maple instead of honey and frozen peaches we had hanging around from last summer’s harvest share. Thank you!

    Oh my goodness this is one of my all time fave , super easy to make recipies for my two fussy kids (2 and 4). We’ve done this recipe several times and it’s been a hit each time (we use tinned peaches and freeze any excess peach for the next batch). We make them into mini muffins but they always end up eating half the tray. Today we didn’t have any banana but did have ripe Mangoes so I ended up substituting the banana for mango and it turned out fabulous too. It’s lovely and moist as it is with banana

    I used the foil cup cake holders and I totally forgot to grease them ?. It’s ok though, I’m cutting them up for a school snack ?.
