These Almond Butter Banana Oat Muffins are moist, satisfying, and have a delicious almond butter banana flavor. There is just enough chocolate in every bite to satisfy a sweet tooth. Flourless and gluten free.
Muffins have been on the top of my list lately. With a wild and crazy 4 month old, running a business from home all while trying to get dinner on the table… life is moving at warp speed. Do you guys feel that way too? Why can’t time just slow down?
Enter these Almond Butter Banana Oat Muffins. They save the day because I can make a batch and freeze half of them to munch on later when I need a breakfast STAT but don’t have time to make anything or a snack attack hits but I’ve got to run out the door for a meeting.
When I bake a batch of muffins I like to pack them with wholesome foods that are nutrient dense and have lots of fiber.
For this recipe I used honey and bananas for sweetness and ground raw old fashioned oats in the Vitamix to make the oat flour–
or sugar here.
It makes me feel good eating these dessert-like but healthy muffins anytime of day, plus my gluten free husband can enjoy them too!
