Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Banana Oat Muffins

Gluten Free and Dairy Free Banana Oat muffins

One of my favorite ways to develop healthy recipes is with bananas. With the heavy holiday season food around the corner, I love having lighter banana muffins for a yummy and semi-sweet balanced snack or breakfast. I have three banana bread recipes on my website and if you follow me on social, you know that I bake my Refined Sugar Free Banana Bread and Refined Sugar-Free Double Chocolate Chip Banana Bread ALL the time. But the third banana bread recipe is more decadent, Gluten-free Cinnamon Sugar Banana Bread, this recipe is honestly my favorite winter recipe treat with a cup of coffee.

Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Banana Oat Muffins – hearty and delicious

I took one of my all-time favorite recipes, Refined Sugar-Free Banana Bread and added oats and more internal seasoning to fit with the holiday season. The oatmeal not only adds texture but a nutty flavor to the muffin. I am a huge oatmeal fan, but I find that I would reach for a banana bread muffin 9/10 times, and that was the inspiration behind these classic, easy muffins.

Ingredients for Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Banana Oat Muffins

The key to baking is having core ingredients on hand for the ability to whip something up when you crave it. I find that I immediately lose motivation if I have to run to the grocery store for three ingredients. I started my blog on the principle of easy baking but gluten-free, and this recipe relies on boring pantry staples, like those old bananas you said you were going to eat and the old tub of oatmeal in the back of the pantry.

What kind of oats are best for this recipe?

I think that old-fashioned oats are far superior to quick oats because they hold their integrity more when they bake in a batter. I chose the old-fashioned style oats because of the size and texture they add to each bite. When you choose your gluten-free oats make sure they are marked gluten-free. Although, oats are naturally gluten-free, they can come across cross-contamination in the harvesting process.

Look at that soft texture!
