Banana Oatmeal Muffins (Gluten-Free)

bananaoatmealmuffins

Looking for a quick snack to grab on the go? Try making my banana oatmeal walnut and cacao muffins! They are even gluten free! Keep in mind that gluten-free recipes tend to be more dense and these muffins include ingredients with a high satiety value (leave you feeling full). For example, almond meal/flour (ground almonds) is higher in protein versus regular flour and tends to be more dense. Spoilage may be faster in this type of muffin…if you won’t be eating them within 2 days I recommend storing them in the freezer or refrigerator.

What you will need (serves 12):

  • 3 small bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups oats
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt (0% m.f. plain)
  • 3 tbsp almond meal
  • 1 tbsp flax meal
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp walnuts, crushed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • optional: add in raw cacao nibs
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Mash 3 small bananas
  3. Combine the rest of the ingredients and mix
  4. Bake at 350F for ~20 minutes
  5. Remove from oven and sprinkle the tops with coconut sugar
  6. Enjoy 🙂
