Guilt Free Morning Power Muffins

In an effort to reduce the amount of processed flour and sugars in my daily diet, I created a muffin which is gluten free, dairy free, AND free of refined sugars! (The one thing it’s not missing is flavor!) It takes no time to whip up these moist, nutrient-rich muffins, and they’re easy to customize too. The foundation of the muffin is ground almonds, gluten free oats, bananas, and honey, and after that you can add any of your favorite dried fruits and nuts. Served with a dollop of peanut butter or a drizzle of honey, these muffins will satisfy without you having to sacrifice a thing!

Morning Power Muffins

Yield: 20

Ingredients

  • 4-5 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup of canola oil
  • 5 tbsp of honey, (or agave nectar)
  • 1 cup oatmeal (gluten-free whole oats)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2-3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  • Spray muffin pan with PAM or line with cupcake liners to prevent the muffin from sticking to the pan. Pre-heat the oven to 340.
  • Once bananas are thawed and peeled, place in a stand-mixer bowl fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on low for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add in the Canola oil and honey, continue mixing.
  • Add the baking powered, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Thoroughly mix for 1-2 minutes.
  • Pour in the flour and oats, allow to mix only until barely combined. Over mixing will cause the muffins to dry out.
  • With a rubber spatula fold in the pecans and cranberries until just combined.
  • Fill muffin pan 3/4 of the way to allow room for the muffins to expand.
  • Bake for 20 mins. Muffins will still be slightly gooey when you first take them out of the oven…resist eating while they cool for 5-10 mins.
  • Serve warm with a drizzle of honey..or my favorite, natural peanut butter.
