Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups quick oats
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk, dairy or non-dairy
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt

optional mix-ins: 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup coconut, 1/2 cup chopped almonds, pecans, or walnuts

    Instructions

    • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line muffin tins with paper cups or grease with cooking spray. Set aside.
    • Place all ingredients except optional mix-ins in a blender, food processor, or large bowl, if using immersion blender. Blend until thoroughly mixed and smooth. NO BLENDER METHOD: Mash bananas in a large bowl. Add slightly beaten eggs and remaining ingredients. Mix well.
    • Stir in any optional mix-ins. Pour batter into prepared muffin tins to about 3/4 full. If there are no mix-ins, you should have about 12 muffins. Using mix-ins yields about 14-18 muffin cups. Sprinkle shredded coconut on muffin tops, if desired.
    • Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes clean. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire rack and cool completely.
