These healthy gluten-free blueberry banana muffins are great in the morning for breakfast or afternoon treat. They’re made with wholesome oat flour, which is naturally gluten free, mashed banana, greek yogurt, and coconut sugar for just a touch for sweetness.
Anyone else like me and prefer a savory breakfast over sweet? I much rather have a few pieces of sausage, veggies, and eggs for breakfast over a sweet pastry. But, there are some days when I’m craving something sweet and carb-y like a muffin for breakfast. On those days, I still want to keep my first meal of the day healthy. I don’t feel my best when I start the day off with a super sugary breakfast, so if I’m going to do a sweet breakfast, it’s important for me to keep the sugar low and the nutritional value high.
These easy gluten-free blueberry banana muffins are packed with mashed bananas, fresh blueberries, and lightly sweetened with coconut sugar. They’re sweet, but not too sweet, which makes them the perfect little muffin to serve at breakfast or even as an afternoon snack.
These healthy muffins are made in one bowl which means it won’t take you any time at all to whip them up. To make these muffins you’ll need:
gluten-free oat flour (you can make your own by blending gluten-free rolled oats in your blender or food processor until they turn into flour)
plain greek yogurt
The plain greek yogurt keeps these muffins tender and moist, while also packing a punch of protein. If you would like to keep these muffins dairy-free, you could also use a plain dairy-free almond or coconut milk greek yogurt.
I like to make a batch of these muffins Sunday afternoon and store them in the freezer for the week ahead. Just make a batch, let them come to a cool, and then place in a freezer bag to store in the freezer. When you’re ready to eat a muffin, just heat one in a warm oven. I usually put my muffin in an oven while I let the it preheat to 350 degrees. A few minutes after the oven has preheated, the muffin is usually warmed through and ready to eat.
