Wet Ingredients

  • 3 overly ripe bananas, mashed
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 egg

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 12 pieces caramel, chopped into 4ths


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tin with paper liners.
  • While oven preheats, mash bananas in a large bowl with a fork.
  • Add the remaining wet ingredients to the mashed banana and stir well with a whisk.
  • In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients.
  • Use a spatula to pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir using large circular strokes scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl. Do not over mix batter. Stir until no streaks of flour remain. Batter will still be lumpy.
  • Once batter is mixed add caramel, reserving enough to top each muffin. Divide batter between muffin tin and add reserved pieces of caramel.
  • Place muffins in preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes. Check with a toothpick for donness.


*I do not always use muffin liners but in this recipe it is absolutely necessary or you will be scrubbing caramel off you pan for days!
