  • Please note: you can use honey or maple syrup to combine the mixture but I chose not to due to their high sugar content
  • Once the mixture is combined, spread on to a baking tray and cook for 10-15 minutes, breaking up the mixture occasionally to ensure it cooks evenly

Banana oatmeal muffins

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats (or quinoa flakes)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup of hot water
  • 1 tbsp of natvia/stevia (add more for sweetness)
  • Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 mashed banana
  • And sometimes, I’ll add a tablespoon of sugar free maple syrup to sweeten it up a little

Directions:

  1. Make your oatmeal as per normal, so add your oats, sugar, cinnamon, milk and water in a bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes to gain an oatmeal consistency.
  2. Once your oats are cooked in the microwave, add the baking powder, mashed banana and sugar free maple syrup and mix until combined.
  3. Spray your muffin tins with light olive oil and bake for 10-15 minutes.

These ingredients will tend to make 2-3 cupcake size muffins.

FYI – I have made these muffins with both rolled oats and quinoa flakes, and found the muffins turned out ‘fluffier’ using quinoa flakes.
