Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 egg room temp
  • 1/3 cup cane sugar
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 5 tablespoons organic butter melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoon non-dairy or regular milk

Toppings

  • 1/4 cup raspberry
  • Touch honey
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon blueberries
  • 3/4 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon walnuts chopped
  • 4 slices banana

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 12-14 muffin cavities with liners.
  2. In a medium sized bow, combine all of the dry ingredients (oat flour to baking soda). Set aside.
  3. In your stand mixer or with a hand mixer/whisk, mash the bananas. Add in the sugar and remaining wet ingredients and mix until smooth.
  4. Pour in dry ingredients and mix until well-combined. Be careful not to over-mix.
  5. Divide batter between the muffin cavities - it should make 12-14 muffins.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the raspberries and touch of honey. For 3 of the muffins, add a teaspoon of peanut butter and raspberry mixture and swirl.
  7. In 3 of the muffins, add dark chocolate chips and mix so they incorporate into the muffin. Add a few more of top.
  8. In 3 of the muffins, add blueberries and a 1/4 teaspoon chia seeds and swirl into the muffin. I added a few more blueberries on top.
  9. Finally, in the final 3 muffins, add in walnuts and swirl into the muffin. Top with a fresh slice of muffin.
  10. Bake the muffins for 15-18 minutes.**

Recipe Notes

**If you are feeling fancy and what a more bakery style muffin, then try this cooking method: For the first 5 minutes of baking time, increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees. The hotter air will help the muffin rise more quickly and create a beautiful dome like shape for the muffin top. Lower the temperature back to 350 and bake for remaining time.
