Updated with WW Personal Points on 11/18/21.
Here is THE BEST Weight Watchers inspired breakfast muffin ever made. These Flourless Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins are da bomb.
On the WW Personal Points Plan, each muffin is 1 Personal Point if you chose Eggs and Oatmeal as your Zero Point Foods, each muffin is 2 Personal Points if you chose just Oatmeal (not Eggs) as your Zero Point Food. Each muffin is 3 Personal Points if you chose just Eggs (not Oatmeal) as a Zero Point Food. A muffin will be 3 Personal Points if you did not chose Eggs or Oatmeal as your Zero Point Foods.
And if you follow the myWW Purple Plan, they are 0 SmartPoints! If you follow the myWW Blue Plan, one muffin is only 1 SmartPoint and if you are a Green Plan follower, they are still only 2 SmartPoints per muffin.
If you have a gluten sensitivity OR have celiac disease, you can still enjoy these fantastic flourless muffins because you are using oatmeal instead of all purpose flour. Simply process the rolled oats in your handy dandy food processor or blender. Since I do not have a sensitivity to gluten, I use regular rolled oats and just process them. However if you DO have any issues with gluten, I’d be safe and buy oats that are specifically labeled “gluten free”. Below I will link gluten free oatmeal flour if your local grocery store doesn’t carry this type.
