Healthy Oatmeal Muffins Recipe with applesauce, banana, no sugar and no flour. Easy, delicious and the best breakfast on the go.

This baked oatmeal in a form of convenient pre-portioned grab and go breakfast is made with applesauce, banana, no sugar and no flour. Easy, delicious and the best breakfast on the go. I guarantee you have all ingredients on hand to make these healthy oatmeal muffins right now.

I made 2 versions: one with mashed bananas (just yellow ripe ones, no need to wait for them to turn brown) and another one with unsweetened applesauce. Both super delicious!

As expected, my kids couldn’t stop eating these oatmeal muffins. I swear, my kids will eat almost anything in a muffin form. I’m sure you can relate. These muffins are really just your usual morning oatmeal. That is what I wanted – no added sugar, just what I would add to a bowl of oatmeal. I just wanted the convenience. Especially with the school start (thank you, heavens!) and cooler weather (thank you, heavens again!), I can bake and think straight again.

Oh, and these are similar, just without protein powder, to my banana oat protein muffins.

And I will share my applesauce secret. I never buy it and probably save about $300 a year. I have this tiny apple tree that produces gazillion of apples but many of them get worms before ripening. So, this year we made half into applesauce and half froze for smoothies (that was my new “aha” moment). So, to make applesauce I cut apples (no peeling necessary), remove core, add to a big pot, add half water and cook until soft, about 45-60 minutes. Then cool down, blend and pack in 1 cup portions into BPA free snack bags. Freeze. That is it. Easy peasy.

Kids asked for some applesauce without the skins to eat now and they do not like it blended too much. So, I just put some in a strainer over a bowl and stirred with a laddle as it was separating from the skins. Again, easy peasy.

I hope you enjoy these super easy and healthy oatmeal muffins! To die for, especially the apple one as it is Fall time now.
