This Flourless Banana Oatmeal Muffins recipe is simple to follow, gluten free and all natural. The muffins are made with a banana, peanut butter, honey and oatmeal. Being full of fiber, healthy fats and protein makes them a great option for a snack too!
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 large overly ripened banana (or 2 small bananas)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3 tbsp milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
- 1/4 cup honey (can you maple syrup or agave if vegan)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (dairy free chocolate chips may be substituted)
- Preheat oven to 350F and prepare muffin tin with liners.
- Pour rolled oats into a food processor or blender until oats break down. (see picture)
- In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix until combined.
- In another bowl, mash banana until no chunks are present. Whisk in eggs and add remaining wet ingredients (peanut butter, milk, honey and vanilla extract).
- Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix. Once combined, add in chocolate chips.
- Fill muffin cups about 1/2 the way full. If you have batter left over, evenly pour the remaining into muffin cups.
- Bake at 350 for about 15-18 minutes or until toothpick runs clear.
I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but any milk should be fine.
After adding in the chocolate chips, pour the batter into the muffin tin right away. If you let the batter sit, the oat flour will absorb more liquid and the muffins won't be as soft.
You can store them in an airtight container on the counter for up to 5-6 days. After 5-6 days, I recommend putting them in the refrigerator.
Every oven is different, be sure to test doneness by sticking a toothpick in the middle of a muffin.
I have not tested these using a flax egg. If you do, comment below!
