These soft and fluffy blender banana oat muffins make for a quick toddler-friendly snack free of any refined flours and refined sugars. If you’re wondering why they’re known as “blender” muffins, it’s because the batter is smoothly blitzed together in just minutes using a blender! The best part? The recipe calls for just a handful of healthy pantry staples that pack in a nutritious punch for you and your little ones.
Key Ingredients In These Blender Banana Oat Muffins
- Rolled Oats: Instead of all-purpose flour, we are using old-fashioned rolled oats – finely blitzed into a flour-like consistency – as a fibre-rich and nutrient-dense alternative.
- Leaving Agents: Both baking powder and baking soda are required to give a lift to these muffins.
- Maple Syrup: You could use any liquid sweetener of your choice; we are partial to unrefined maple syrup which is vegan-friendly.
- Banana: A ripe banana adds natural sweetness to these blender oat muffins.
- Mylk of choice: you could use a plant-based Mylk or regular milk for this recipe.
- Almond butter: To be honest, any nut butter of your choice would work here to add a nuttiness as well as stand in as the “good fat” in this recipe!
