blueberry banana muffins

I’m getting really into oat flour. It’s SO easy and makes everything you put it in instantly moist. Thanks to the oat flour, these healthy blueberry banana muffins are impossible to resist. They’re also made with no refined sugar—I used honey as a sweetener, and only a 1/4 cup at that. But they still end up tasting sweet thanks to the ripened bananas. 

Of course, what is a true muffin without blueberries? I’m halfway convinced that any muffin sans bluebs should be outlawed.

But like, look at how moist they are. The most moistest. The combination of oat flour and bananas make it nearly impossible to over-bake these babies.

How to make oat flour at home

For those of you thinking no, Sarah, I’m not going to buy another flour at the grocery store, well, you don’t have to.

Do you have old-fashioned oats? Do you have a blender or food processor? Cool, you’re all set to make your own oat flour.

To make homemade oat flour, all you do is pulse oats in a blender until completely pulverized, and you’re good to go. You don’t want big chunks in the oat flour, so pulse it until it’s finely ground. Just make sure you’re using old-fashioned oats and not steel cut or instant, because I’m not sure how that would affect these muffins!

You can keep oat flour in an air-tight bag for weeks at a time, or you can make a smaller amount for a single recipe.

Easy. As. Pie. Or muffins. Blueberry Banana Muffins.

How to freeze muffins for later

Because these oat flour muffins are so healthy, they’re perfect to have on hand for a filling breakfast. This blueberry banana muffin recipe makes 12 muffins, but you can easily double the recipe to last you for a few weeks. To freeze these muffins, let them cool completely to room temperature before throwing them into a freezer-safe baggie. (Freezer bags are best, as they’re thicker and help prevent freezer burn).

When you’re ready to eat one of these healthy oat flour muffins, simply heat it up in the microwave or toaster oven. You can also set a muffin out on the counter overnight and grab it on your way out the door in the morning! If you have time, slather some nut butter onto your muffin for an extra burst of flavor and healthy fats.

And in news around the interwebs:

I just bought this baby at Nordstrom. Can’t wait to wear it with nude heels and a black choker necklace.

Macarons forever have my heart.

Laughing at this David Guetta parody. About lost it at “Money! Money!”

I finally invested in a new point and shoot camera. It’s mirrorless, which means high-quality images without the bulk of a dSLR. I can’t wait to take it on my next travel adventure!

Currently designing my office space, but I can’t figure out what reading chair to get. What do you like better, this or this? Oh but also this in dusty blush is gorggggg.

It’s popsicle season, people.

I love blueberry muffins. I recently made a batch of them. But I didn’t use banana or oats. Instead I had lemon zest in it. It tasted fresh and yum as well. https://flyingkittyadventures.com/2016/06/03/blueberry-and-lemon-zest-muffins/

This recipe is great and it’s an amazing base for other types of muffins. While making these I realized I didn’t have enough blueberries so I added lemon zest of two lemons and lemon juice of one lemon along with some poppyseed. Omg!!! They were so delicious and flavorful. I got to eat one but my family immediately gobbled down the rest of them, I barely managed to save two for the toddler’s breakfast the next morning!!

I’m on my second batch in one week because the first dozen were gone in 1/2 day. For my second batch, I added a touch of pure maple syrup used strawberries instead of blueberries. I also made them mini-muffins so I could throw them into my son’s lunch! Thank you for this wonderful gluten free option!
