These VEGAN Banana Muffins (Gluten-free) made with oats flour & flaxseed ‘egg’ make an excellent fiber-rich breakfast to kick-start your day!
This year, I resolved to eat breakfasts (everyday) and get a bit more healthy by cutting down sugar and refined foods. And you know what, healthy CAN be delicious! What d’ya know! Like these VEGAN Banana Muffins that also happen to be gluten-free! That’s right! NO egg, NO ‘flour’ and absolutely NO Dairy!
I almost half expected it to taste like mud, but you know what? It was delicious! Really soft, really spongy and really delicious! I am a sucker for Banana muffins and as these VEGAN + Gluten-Free version came out of the oven, smelling all heavenly, I was tickled to know that I don’t have to give up my taste buds to get a little healthy!
While eating these, it’s so easy to forget that it’s made with oats flour and flaxseed ‘egg’. Then there’s cinnamon and vanilla to tease your senses and maple syrup and coconut sugar to augment the sweetness from the bananas. Toss in a little coconut oil and cashew (or any other non-dairy milk) to mix things up and you are all set to a healthy, fibre-rich breakfast on the go!
Just be sure to fill the batter to the brim of your cupcake liner – I filled them 3/4th of the way and they rose just up to the rim – personally, I like muffin-tops that peek out of the liner threshold.
Aren’t they pretty! Honestly, it was pretty kick-ass! This recipe makes 12, and in case you’re baking just for yourself, freeze the excess and every morning, pop them in the microwave to warm them up. To reduce microwaving time, you can also thaw them in the fridge the night before.
See! Soft, spongy and delicious! Just like a regular Banana muffin! But you and I know, this one is so much healthier, yet tastes just as great!
Notes: Make your own oats flour by processing Rolled oats in your dry spice blender. I used Quaker quick cooking rolled oats.
When you make these (which I really think you SHOULD!), be sure to SHARE YOUR PHOTOS with me through Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. I’d love to see what you cook from here and will share it with pride on my social media feeds.
If you don’t care so much about being Gluten-free/Vegan, then here’s a regular person Banana muffin recipe that I absolutely LOVE!
