Healthy Oat Banana Coconut Muffins

The other day, one of my friends said she is trying to bake healthy sweets for her son. I’ve gotten interested in healthy sweets lately so I’ve been trying to use healthy ingredients such as oats, coconut oil, whole wheat, things like that.

I love unhealthy sweets so I indulge myself (pretty often), but recently I also like enjoying healthy and tasty sweets! These wholesome oat banana coconut muffins are very easy, you can make them in one-bowl and just so good.

I baked these in muffin cups because it takes less baking time than baking in a loaf pan. If you prefer, you can bake in a loaf pan. It may need to be baked longer depending on the size.
