Healthy banana breakfast muffins

For 10-12 muffins, you’ll need:

  • 3 medium/large overripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup oat flour (you can also make this yourself by grinding oats in a food processor)
  • ½ cup buckwheat flour
  • ½ cup spelt flour
  • handful of chopped dates
  • handful of chopped walnuts
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tspn baking powder
  • ½ tspn baking soda
  • A food processor or blender
  • A muffin tray

It is important that you use overripe bananas; that means really spotty, almost completely brown bananas. This way you don’t need to add sugar as the bananas will give a nice sweet flavour. These muffins are also a great way to use up overripe bananas and not throw them out.

Now what?

1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
2. Put the bananas, eggs and vanilla extract in the food processor. Next, add the oat flour, the buckwheat flour, spelt flour, and blend until smooth.
3. Add the chopped dates, the chopped walnuts, the baking powder and the baking soda to the mixture.
4. Divide the batter among the muffin tray.
5. Put the tray in the oven for about 25-30 minutes; they are ready when they are golden brown colour in colour.

    Kun je deze muffins ook maken met alleen maar speltmeel? Of speltmeel in combinatie met amandelmeel?

    • Lisa

      Ik zou niet alleen speltmeel gebruiken; dan wordt de muffin waarschijnlijk een harde droge hap. Ik denk dat het wel in combinatie met amandelmeel zou moeten kunnen, alleen weet ik dan helaas niet welke verhouding het lekkerst is! Amandelmeel heeft ook de neiging om soms een wat droog resultaat te geven, dus als je aan de slag wilt met speltmeel en amandelmeel denk ik dat het een idee is om nog een halve banaan toe te voegen 🙂

    This is just meant to be – I have all the ingredients at home! That almost never happens. I’m so trying this tonight for some late evening baking. Can’t already wait for breakfast tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe.
