Today’s magic words: FLOURLESS. BLENDER. MUFFINS with no added sugar! This is the healthy breakfast muffin you didn’t know you needed.
As much as I looooove perfectly soft, beautiful bakery muffins, a lot of them are really cupcakes without frosting. Nothing wrong with that… but not for every day. These muffins are true good-for-you with fruit, eggs, and oats. They puff up with a nice dome top but aren’t terribly sugary, perfect alongside your morning coffee or tea.
We’re using whole-grain oats instead of flour and bananas instead of refined sugar. This is a hearty muffin on the dense side that isn’t too sweet and isn’t overwhelmingly banana-y, with a little taste of peanut butter and cinnamon swirling around too.
Pack up a few and take them to the office – boom, breakfasts & mid-morning snacks are ready for the week. These muffins will last up to a week in a well-sealed container.
I used chunky peanut butter because chunky >>> creamy and it’s what we have in the pantry, but you can use creamy if that’s your thing.
I haven’t tested this recipe with natural peanut butter – if you try it, let me know how they turn out! You’ll need to stir natural peanut butter very well before adding and your muffins will be oilier & denser.
