Delicious Guilt Free Muffins


I love muffins... SO much. They usually have a lot of sugar in them or processed wheat, neither of which sit good in my gut. I also wanted something that Norah could have as well, because who wants to be left out of a fresh batch of warm muffins?! I divided the batter in half and made half the batch with vegan chocolate chips and the other half with mixed berries (you can guess which were for my husband and which were for Norah). They turned out delicious!! A little note though; they are a bit crumbly when they're hot, so don't try to take them out of the pan too soon, let them sit and cool a bit. Enjoy!!!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oat flour (very finely grind oats)
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 2.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 flax egg (1 Tbsp ground flax + 3 Tbsp water mixed and let sit 5 minutes)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh or frozen mixed berries OR vegan mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Combine oat flour, oats and baking powder. 

    In a larger separate bowl, mash banana in with the coconut oil until combined. Then add apple sauce, maple syrup, flax egg and vanilla.

    Pour dry mixture into wet mixture and combine. Then stir in berries or chocolate chips.

    Spoon into muffin tins and bake 350 degrees for about 18 minutes. 

    Let cool 10 minutes in muffin tins and then carefully transfer to a wire rack.

    Enjoy!
