A healthy breakfast alternative, snack idea, lunch box addition and on-the-go treat. These easy 3 ingredient banana oat muffins are vegan and made with no flour and no sugar. If you're looking for healthy snacks for kids, these are a hit!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and generously grease a mini muffin pan.
In a large bowl, mix together the smashed banana, oats and vanilla.
Add in the mix-ins of your choice; stir to combine.
Spoon the mixture into your muffin pan, filling them up close to the top.
Bake for 15-18 minutes and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Bananas vary in size, but here is an idea of what your banana mixture should look like. Not too dry but not too banana-ie:
Chocolate chips, chopped nuts, peanut butter, raisins, coconut, chia seeds, cinnamon, dried cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, sea salt, and more.
Instead of stirring your mix-ins into the banana oat mixture, fill your muffin cups up about half way, add in a few mix-ins, top with more banana oat mixture, and then top with more mix-ins.
I've found this recipe to be the perfect sweetness when using chocolate chips or raisins, but a little more bland with berries-- perfect for breakfast! However, if you like things on the sweeter side, feel free to add a 1/4 cup brown sugar, maple syrup or honey.
