Banana Oat Muffin

I am always looking for new, delicious, healthy, and simple recipes to incorporate into my life. I stumbled across this one recently when I was looking for low calorie, easy muffins to use as a snack during the day.

These simple, healthy, and delicious muffins use very few ingredients, no added sugar, eggs, dairy, or grain flour. They do have a “gummy” texture, which I happen to really like, but I am aware that not everybody feels the same. 🙂 So, I provided another recipe that I know has received great reviews!

Recipe #1:

Ingredients: 
3/4 c mashed banana (the browner the sweeter)
Just shy of 1/2 c oat flour
1/2 c shredded zuchini
1/8 c oats
1 Tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon

The process:

  • Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees ( I only have a toaster oven, but it works perfectly!)IMG_6964
  • Put all of your ingredients into a bowl and mix well, making sure banana is entirely mashed. IMG_6923
  • Grease a 6 count muffin tin with coconut oil and distribute muffin mix evenly.

  • Bake for 18-20+ minutes, and allow these babies to cool. They will look a little rough, and they do not rise! This was the time I realized…..I never bake at my house and don’t actually have a cooling rack! lol
