I’ll admit I don’t always eat a “perfect” healthy diet.

Especially in December, filled with so many holiday parties and family gatherings, it’s not uncommon for a few too many drinks and way too many Christmas cookies to sneak their way into my life.

Not to mention the homemade chocolate fudge, the bourbon pecan pie, and the Christmas zeppole (a traditional Italian dessert that is basically deep-fried dough coated in sugar. Sounds healthy, right? Maybe not… but they are really good!).

If you’re anything like me, you don’t even want to look at another Christmas cookie by the time January rolls around.

(That feeling only lasts about two days… but still.)

These healthy oatmeal banana bread muffins are loaded with whole-grains, fiber and vitamins; the perfect remedy to counter all of those holiday cookie binges.

Or that New Year’s Eve hangover…

Did you make a New Year’s resolution year? Have you been successful in keeping them so far?

Losing weight and eating healthier are consistently two of the top ten New Years resolutions made every year… and statistics suggest that over 40% of people who make these resolutions will break them before February!

The pictured muffins are frosted with Healthy Cream Cheese Frosting.

Oatmeal Muffins - Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups rolled oats, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 2 tsp vanilla, 1/4 cup... Full recipe: @choccoveredkt 


Oatmeal Banana Bread Muffins

  • 1 cup milk of choice (240g)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp white or apple cider vinegar (21g)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup applesauce (120g)
  • 1 cup mashed banana, measured after mashing (240g)
  • 3 tbsp vegetable or coconut oil (30g)
  • 1 cup rolled oats (90g)
  • 1 1/2 cup spelt flour (200g) (Bob’s gf also works here)
  • 1/2 cup sugar of choice or xylitol (100g)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, optional

Oatmeal Muffins Recipe: Preheat oven to 400 F. Add liners to 15 muffin tins, and set aside. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the first 6 ingredients. In a separate large bowl, stir the remaining ingredients together. Pour wet into dry, and stir until just evenly combined (don’t overmix). Portion evenly into the muffin liners and bake 18 minutes. They will be a bit undercooked when you take them out… allow to cool uncovered for at least 20 minutes. Then, if possible, loosely cover and wait a day – water absorbs and texture is much firmer next day.

    Hi Katie,

    I absolutely adore your blog. Thank you for sharing such yummy recipes. Where, oh where, can I find a spiralizer? I have searched high and low to no avail!! I need a spiralizer in my life!!

  2. Justine says

    I would have a week of pancakes! However, that could be the enormous plate of pancakes that I just made talking here…….How about sweet potato week? It may seem borning, but there are so many things one can do with a sweet potato…….

    Happy Saturday, Katie 🙂

  3. susan says

    So glad this week will continue haha! I’ve been reslly enjoying all of the recipes! If I chose a theme week I think it would be bean week. Or sweet potato week!

  4. Kiersten says

    I don’t know what my week would be. At first I was going to say either nut butter or oatmeal week, but every week is nut butter/oatmeal week. I should have a chickpea week since I like cooking with them so much.

  5. Caitlin says

    I’m excited for that cookie recipe!

    I would probably have an “ice cream” theme week, immediately followed by an “oh my gosh I need vegetables right now please no more sugar” theme week.

  6. Jess from Midwest Vegan says

    I found Artisana raw coconut butter at my local grocery store the other day!!

    I scooped that baby right up. I adore coconut and I was definitely not disappointed! It was love at first bite! I had it today with a sliced banana, some raw almond butter, some coconut flakes, and a hefty sprinking of Grape Nuts (high in iron). It was awesome… 🙂

  7. Stefanie says

    I would say grain week would be a fun theme. That and sweet potato would be interesting. One day I will make that cheesecake. 🙂

  8. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) says

    Theme week? how to work full time, parent full time, and buy ZERO prepared/convenience foods while staying true to a GF high raw vegan path.

    When you figure out the answers to that one, LMK. It’s the theme of my life…haha! And most of the time I do well, but it’s not always easy, and it keeps me BUSY, but I wouldnt have it any other way.

    Enjoy your Weekend Katie!

  9. Shelby says

    OMG! Your blog makes me hate that I stopped blogging! I missed out on all your delicious recipes! Oh well, guess I’m taking a couple hours to look though your posts and get some ideas (:

  10. Erika says

    If I could choose a theme week for my blog I would choose between nut butter, chocolate, smoothies, oatmeal, and baked goods. All of the things that I would be able to eat everyday for months! 🙂

  11. spoonfulofsugarfree says

    Thanks for Artisana week, Katie!!! I love, love, loved it 🙂 I can’t wait to see the coconut butter cookies-to see what you came up with! I am actually planning on going to the store to get some zuchinni…

    I’ve been wanting (and planning) to do a “Travel Week” with tips on eating healthy on the road (or in the air), and a Smoothie Week.
