Looking for a sweet tooth breakfast, minus the sugar? These banana strawberry breakfast muffins are quick and easy, and contain no added sugar.

banana strawberry breakfast muffins


  • 2 large, ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 3 dates, seeds removed and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 medium strawberries, quartered


1. Preheat oven to 360F (180C) and lightly grease 6 cups of a 12-cup muffin tray (coconut or canola oil work best).

2. In a mixing bowl, beat banana, egg, dates, vanilla, and coconut oil. If the coconut oil is slightly lumpy, don’t worry – these muffins are more delicious when rustic and imperfect. Add oats, flour, baking powder, and salt; mix until just combined. Fold in strawberries, being careful not to over-mix otherwise the strawberries will bleed into the batter.

3. Portion into six cups of a muffin tray and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until muffins spring back when lightly touched. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm, or store in an airtight container. They’re perfect to pack for school or bring to work for breakfast on-the-go.
