Start your day off right with these delicious Blender Banana Oatmeal Muffins! They are gluten and oil free, but they are very moisture because of the Greek Yogurt. Also They are naturally sweetened and easy to make!
These months that I have spent in Brazil visiting my family, I have been cooking some North American recipes because my family has asked. They want to try more recipes that it is not common in Brazil and are traditional in the north. The first few days my sister asked me to make my famous Peanut Butter Oatmeal Waffles for the whole family. I made it and as I was expecting they all loved it. First because it is really delicious (You should try to make it today!) and second because it is something new for them. In the northeast of Brazil we like to eat cooked plantain, cassava, couscous, bread, eggs, cheese and lots of fruits for breakfast. Waffles are definitely something that you don’t find here easily for breakfast.
Then, they asked me to make cookies for them. Oh Gosh… I made my Peanut Butter Gluten-free Cookie recipe and it was a big hit. They ate all the cookies in less than a hour. I am not kidding… hahahahah! My nephew who is one year and 7 months went crazy. My mom and my sister had about 3 or 4 cookies at once. And finally few days ago my sister asked me to make muffins. As I didn’t have any muffins recipes on my blog I was browsing some recipes on Pinterest and I found this Banana Oatmeal muffins from the blog Running with a spoon and it was recreated by my friend Erin from Well Plated. I immediately loved this recipe because it uses a blender to combine all the ingredients and make the batter smooth. I love to use my blender when I can because I think it is very convenient.
Another reason why I made this recipe is because it is very healthy. You will use banana and oatmeal as a base instead of white flour, which makes this recipe gluten-free. These breakfast muffins are also very filling because of all the bananas and the oat that are loaded with fiber. We also will use Greek yogurt to replace the oil and make this muffins very moisture. It is also refined sugar free and if your bananas are very sweet you can even reduce the amount of honey. Isn’t that great?! And yes this recipe calls for chocolate chips but if you want you can replace them for chopped nuts, dried fruits or even some fresh blueberries.
As you can see, what you need to make this recipe are very simple ingredients that I bet we all have at home such as oats, bananas, honey, eggs and Greek yogurt. These muffins are very delicious and perfect to have for breakfast or your snack time at your busy day of work. Enjoy!
