How To Make Yummy And Healthy Muffins At Home!

My recipe for oat banana blueberry muffins rocks!

I’m going to admit something here — I’m not a great baker. Cooking is my forte, but baking has always presented a challenge. You see, in cooking, you are free to experiment and do things “off the cuff,” but baking is the opposite. In baking, you need to be very precise and follow directions to the tee. Since I’m a bit of a rebel (hehe), I have screwed up baked goods on occasion. However, not this time. I have finally come up with the perfect recipe, and today I’m happy to share with you how to make yummy and healthy muffins at home.

1 cup sugar (I used monk fruit sugar)

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp sea salt

A handful of chopped walnuts

Wet

3 ripe bananas

    I am not a big baker either. But I love that these muffins are healthy and you can substitute different ingredients.

    1. thesavvydreamer says:

      Oh, I hear you, that’s why I love that this recipe is super simple, healthy and delicious.

  6. Katie says:

    Does your oat flour have xanthum in it? Or just plain flour? I should make these for my Mamma. 🙂

    1. thesavvydreamer says:

      Hi Katie, the brand of oat flour I used Purity Protocol Only Oats has just one ingredient gluten-free oat flour. So no, there isn’t any xanthum gum in it. I’m not a fan of gums as they can give people stomach issues.

  7. Heather says:

    We make muffins pretty often in our home. Our current favorite is banana nut.

    1. thesavvydreamer says:

      Oh yes, I added walnuts to this recipe too.

  8. Alexandra says:

    I happen to have all the ingredients here!!!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Two questions: do you use the same amount of Monkfruit that you would use of sugar? And can I use almond flour?

    1. thesavvydreamer says:

      Hi Alexandra, yes I used the same amount of monk fruit sugar as regular sugar. I haven’t tried this particular recipe with almond flour but I don’t see how it wouldn’t work. I love it with the oat flour because I think it adds a nice flavor but I think almond flour should work similarly. Let me know how it turned out.
