No Flour Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Original Pin:

Pin Rating: 4.5
Duration: 1 hour

I pinned this because it was a nice healthy alternative breakfast muffin with no flour in it.  It does have sugar but it can be substituted with apple sauce or honey.  This recipe was easy to follow, easy to make and not to mention delicious to eat!  Half of the muffins were gobbled up before I even had the chance to blog about them.  The only reason I gave this a 4.5 was because it does take some time out of your day to prep and bake them.  So if you have the time these are great to make.  Beats making breakfast every morning.  :)

By the way, did anyone notice that I'm no longer posting the original Pintrest pictures in my blog?  I found it a little confusing so from here on out I'll be posting my final product photos at the top of the blog post and then linking the original pin somewhere.  Don't like the new format?  Leave me a comment to let me know. Thanks!~

  • 2 ½ Cup oats (old fashioned, not quick cooking)
  • 1 single serving (or 1 cup) of plain low fat greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sweetener of choice, I used sugar 
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda (not pictured)
  • 2 bananas
  • Muffin baking tin (Note from Keeping up with the Joneses blog: The paper liners don't work well when baking with a base that does not include flour, they always seem to stick to the paper. I sprayed the muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or you can use foil cupcake liners or a silicone muffin pan.)
  • Cooking spray (with flour is a plus!
  • Blender (I only had a food processor and it seemed to work fine)
  • Preheat the oven to 400° (Bake 20-25 minutes)

From the blog's recommendation I blended half the oats.  I also decided to mix in eggs, sugar, baking powder and baking soda.

Mix mix mix!  (Yes, I'm mixing things above the Liquid Max Fill line.  :X)

Next mix in the rest of the oats, greek yogurt and bananas.  Make sure to chop or break the banana into smaller pieces first before throwing them into the blender/food processor to make it easier to chop.  Before you fill your muffin tins make sure you spray them so the muffins don't stick.  My sister happened to have a cooking spray that had flour in it so it helped the muffins pop right out of the tin.

Fill 'em up!  I was actually surprised that the recipe divided up evenly in a 12 muffin tin.

Look at them grow!  Recipe calls for 20-25 minutes but I only put the timer on for 20 minutes.  I've learned that it's better to go with the shorter time so that you don't burn them.  Every oven is different so it doesn't hurt to check on them and add more time if necessary.  Poke a toothpick through them and make sure it comes out clean. (No batter should be sticking to the toothpick).  Once they're out of the oven you should pop them out of the tin so that they don't over bake the muffins. (I made that mistake but they still taste delicious).  And enjoy!!

Couldn't help by share a photo of Patches sleeping while I blog. :) So adorable!

  2. Hi Jan, thanks for commenting! I hope you enjoyed the muffin recipe by now. I'm sorry I didn't post the comments earlier, it was stuck in my SPAM section for some reason.
