On-the-go Breakfast Muffins

It’s almostttt the weekend, which means I will finally have a moment to relax and recover from this crazy busy week! As I’m sure a lot of you understand, being a student means that your schedule is bound to change every so often (depending on if you are on the quarter/semester On-the-go Breakfast Muffins systems) and because I just started working out in Santa Monica, meaning over 2 hours of traffic each day, I have found it to be harder to maintain a healthy diet. While adjusting to my new schedule, I will have to brainstorm some quick and easy snacks that I can always have with me on-the-go!

These low-fat banana oatmeal chip muffins are a great way to start your day and because these days I’ve been getting ready and going to work straight from the gym, they will be a perfect on-the-go breakfast that I can eat while on the road! “These tender banana muffins are so delicious that your friends, family, and co-workers won’t  realize they’re made with wholesome oats and whole wheat flour. I made these muffins tonight and I cannot wait to eat them for breakfast tomorrow!



Low-Fat Banana Oatmeal Chip Muffin  


  • 3 large ripe bananas (mashed)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 chia egg (1 tbsp chia seed + 3 tbsp water)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup carob/cacao chips


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, make your chia egg by mixing 1 tbsp chia seeds with 3 tbsp warm water. Mix and set aside.
  • Add all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix. In another bowl, mix all wet ingredients (including the chia egg). Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and mix until all ingredients are well-incorporated.
  • In a well greased muffin pan (I used Pam cooking spray), spoon the mixture into each cup (the cups should be around 3/4 full).
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow it to cool for 10 minutes.

  1. These look absolutely delicious! I just made some muffins earlier this week for on-the-go breakfasts/snacks..I incorporated spinach into mine:)…luv when I can add some more color..I was inspired by another recipe…perfect breakfast & snack idea!

  2. I have so many troubles doing oatmeal muffins. My mother-in-law made awesome muffins with oatmeal and blueberries and they were so fluffy and high… I tried to prepare them, but they ended up too dense and they never rose, even with the amount of yeast I added…
    I’ll try them again with your recipe, hope they’ll give me better luck.
