Greek yogurt adds moisture and tanginess to banana oatmeal muffin batter, complementing ripe bananas' sweetness. Yogurt makes muffins soft and moist by producing a creamy texture and binding the components. Try plain Greek yogurt for a clean taste or honey or vanilla for a sweeter taste.

Nut butter—almond or peanut—adds decadence and depth to banana oatmeal muffins. Nut butter gives the batter richness, creaminess, and healthful fats and protein. For a pure taste, choose natural nut butters without sugar or oils. Swirl or spoon nut butter into the batter or on top before baking for a decadent treat.

Chia seeds add nourishment to banana oatmeal muffins. The omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants in these small seeds make them a strong ingredient for healthy baking. Chia seeds help bind the dough and make a soft crumb. 

Ground cinnamon adds warmth and flavor to banana oatmeal muffins. Bananas' natural sweetness is enhanced by cinnamon's gentle spice. The warm, soothing fragrance of cinnamon enters your home while the muffins bake, tempting you.

Add dark chocolate chips to banana oatmeal muffins for rich, melty pockets. Dark chocolate complements ripe bananas' sweetness with its richness and bitterness. Find high-quality dark chocolate chips with 70% cocoa or more for ultimate deliciousness.

Orange zest freshens banana oatmeal muffins. Orange zest's zesty oils boost banana sweetness and improve muffin flavor. Avoid the bitter white pith beneath the skin while zesting an orange with a microplane grater. For a sunny bite, gently add orange zest into muffin batter.
