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!

 

 

Enjoy!
