Have you ever made muffins in a blender? If not you need to start because it makes gluten and grain-free baking much easier. Gluten is the binding agent that can either make pastries/bread soft or tough when over-mixed. Since we don’t use gluten in this recipe (or any of our recipes) we can easily throw the batter into the food processor and blend away.
This recipe is great any time of the year, but how fun would it be to prepare these muffins on Easter morning? Either way, you and your loved ones are going to devour them. Be sure to pay close attention to the recipe because I'm dropping hacks and modifications throughout! I've also added a bonus recipe at the end that will go great with these gluten-free, sugar-free muffins! Enjoy! Wet Ingredients 1/2 cup Truvia or Monkfruit 1/2 cup melted coconut oil or grass-fed butter (hint-butter gives it a better color, coconut oil gives it a better flavor) 1 cup of bananas (equivalent to 2 medium bananas) 1 large egg 1 teaspoon vanilla Dry Ingredients 2 cups rolled oats 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg Pinch of Himalayan salt Fillers 1 cup shredded carrots 1/2 cup chopped dates 1/2 cup sliced almonds Method 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Set aside. 2. Prepare your FILLERS. Grate the carrots, chop the dates, and chop the almonds. Combine everything into a large bowl and set aside. Now remember, you can save a bit of time by buying the carrots already shredded and the dates and almonds pre-chopped.
3. Place all of the dry ingredients into another bowl. Set aside. 4. Place all of the wet ingredients into a food processor and blend until it forms a batter. Add the dry ingredients to the food processor and blend for at least 2-3 minutes! We want to break up the oats as much as we can.
5. Pour the muffin batter into the FILLER bowl and mix the ingredients until well-combined!
6. Place 1/4 cup servings into each muffin tin. Distribute any leftover batter into each cup. 7. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. Allow muffins to cool to room temperature before you pull them out of the muffin tin otherwise they will fall apart! Enjoy!! Pair this muffin with this delicious low-carb Lemon Curd Recipe!
