    1. Hi Sheila! Yes, they can definitely be gluten free. Just be sure to purchase oats that are certified gluten free. Gluten-free oats are not processed in facilities that also process wheat. Enjoy!

  1. Hi, I don’t have a mini muffin pan but already got the ingredients. Can I make these in a regular cupcake/muffin pan? Thanks

    1. Hi Kaitlyn! I’d try baking at 350 for 13-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean of batter (melted chocolate will still bean the toothpick even when they’re fully cooked so make sure you’re just seeing batter). Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before moving to a cooling rack. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Jenna! They store great at room temperature for up to 2 days and then I recommend in the refrigerator any longer than that. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Lori! I don’t provide nutritional information at this time because everyone uses different brands of ingredients which often have differing nutritional values. I would recommend plugging the ingredients you used into a free online nutrition calculator like: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/recipe/calculator Hope this helps. Enjoy!

  2. Delicious!! I added half of the choco chips and was more than enough for me. I used normal banana, not riped, turned out so good, a recipe to repeat 🙂 Thank you!






    1. Hi Zee! I haven’t tried the recipe with Nutella, so I couldn’t say for sure, but you could definitely try swirling Nutella throughout the batter before scooping it into the mini muffin pan. I would start with 1/2 cup and then add from there until you get nice swirls throughout. They’re bound to be delicious. Enjoy!

  3. I tried this, tweaking a bit (4 banana, no chocolate chip) and these were a realy treat! Will def do again!

  4. This recipe is fantastic. Thank you for sharing. I added a small handful of crushed walnuts to the top of the muffins. It turned out amazing. To be honest I am eating them right now.

  5. Hello, can you blend up the oats first before mixing the rest of the ingredients? Or could you even blend everything but the CC?

    1. Hi CJ! Yes, you can blend up everything except the chocolate chips and then just stir them in. I have several flourless banana bread recipes here on the blog that are made this way and they turn out great. The texture will be smoother, but will still taste great! Enjoy!

    1. Hi Liz! You could bake them in a regular muffin pan or you could press the batter into a square baking pan and then cut into bars. Hope this helps! Enjoy!

    1. Hi MaryEllen! They should freeze great Just let them cool completely and store in an airtight, freezer-safe container or plastic bag for 2-3 months. Hope this helps. Enjoy!
