Healthy Oat Breakfast Muffins

Updated post.

I adore these delicious muffins (which are not just for breakfast obviously). With slow releasing carbs in the oats and some honey for taste, they are my go-to when I’m rushing on the school-run!

We love baking big batches on a weekend to fill us up through the week! They can be freezed too and my favourite way to eat them is with a layer of butter. Alexander is dairy-free so has a bit of jam on his or some free-from spread. They are gluten-free so work for all.

halved oat muffins with butter

Ingredients: 

  • 75g gluten free rice flour (we like Doves Farm)
  • 200g gluten free rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 250ml milk
  • 125g chopped apple or anything you fancy-chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, raisins…

Method:

Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix the rice flour, oats, honey, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Make a well in the middle and add the bananas, egg yolks, milk, olive oil and apple and anything else you are adding. Mix together well.

In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites until you have created soft peaks. Then folk into the mixture. Divide evenly into 12 muffin cases and place into the oven and bake for 25 minutes until golden brown.

Serve with butter, jam or as they are. Can keep in the fridge for 5 days and can be frozen.

    Yum! Made these this morning after seeing your recipe last night. I didn’t have any rice flour so used Doves Farm spelt flour instead & added some raisins too. They were delicious straight out of the oven. I had one before my gym class and didn’t end up coming out feeling hungry like I usually do! Thanks for the recipe x

    Really like the look of these – love muffins in the morning but not a fan of wheat so these are a great alternative!

    I really enjoyed batch baking when Gwenn was younger but then we moved into a fixer upper and all of that seems to have gone out of the window!

    I think I could give these a go though, especially as they freeze well.

    Hurrah! Great to see a gluten-free recipe from you…we would need to use gluten-free oats for our little Roo, but apart from that I can just take your recipe and do it! I love it. Thank you. I am pleased that you are off gluten (purely selfish reasons!!!).

      Ha thanks Vicki, yes should have added gluten free oats! Will amend! There will still be recipes with gluten from the restaurants as my father and Aunt share their posts but lots more gluten free ones too, there are others in the Food Category as well! Thanks

    Splendid healthy muffins! Aren’t bananas amazing as they provide all that natural sweetness, are low fat (I hadn’t realised until the other day) and heaps of yummy flavour to bakes like this – I love one for my breakfast:-)

      They really are Camilla, I eat them in moderation as my body is awful with sugar (I have insulin resistance) but a little goes a long way and love them in baking x

      Same, really limited it for the kids with great results (eldest’s rashes have totally disappeared despite specialist saying non food related) and these are a really healthy start to the morning (or any time) x

        That’s amazing about his rashes. I’ve been reading a lot lately about healing through food and it’s quite incredible what people have been able to achieve just through diet alone.
