Morning Glory Muffins
Here is a recipe for my favourite muffins... Morning Glory Muffins! They are flourless, gluten free, dairy free annnnnd sugar free!
What you'll need:
1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
2 tbsp ground flaxseed (I use Manitoba Milling Co Smooth Whole-Milled Flaxseed)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup creamy almond butter or sun butter
1 medium-size ripe banana
1 large egg
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup carrots or about 2 large carrots (peeled and grated)
1 medium apple (peeled and grated)
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup walnuts or pecans
-Preheat oven to 375 F
-Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray (I use a 12 muffin pan, but you can use a 9 muffin pan to have bigger muffins)
-Add all ingredients except for raisins, walnuts, carrots and apple to a high-speed blender. Blend until oats are broken down and the batter becomes smooth and creamy. You can definitely mix all the ingredients by hand, a blender just helps make the batter more smooth and creamy
-Add raisins, walnuts, carrots and apple to the blender
-Pour batter into muffin pan! Sometimes I push a pitted date into the middle of each muffin after pouring the batter into the muffin pan, but this is optional!
-Bake for 15 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out clean
-Allow muffins to cool before removing from the muffin pan!
-Store in the fridge to keep the muffins fresh!
