Clean Banana Muffin Recipe

Last week I realized I only had about 8 weeks until our family vacation to the Outer Banks and the thought of being in a bikini almost made me feel sick. Yes, I have lost all my baby weight. Yes, I weigh less than I did prior to having a baby. Yes, that’s great. But no, I don’t feel confident enough to be in a bikini or any bathing suit for that matter so we decided it was crunch time. We are both working out again but I’m a firm believer that abs are made in the kitchen and well, I hate working out hardcore so I have to eat cleaner.

I’ve had this recipe for a while and I honestly don’t remember where it came from otherwise I would give credit where credit is due. You can obviously tweak this to whatever fits your dietary needs or wants but this is how I make them.

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium)
  • ½ cup skim milk or unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 large egg
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup oat flour
  • ½ cup quick cooking oats
  • ¼ cup truvia baking blend (sugar)
  • 1 ¾ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Handful of walnuts for topping (optional)
  • Handful of dark chocolate chips for topping (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the bananas, milk, oil, egg and vanilla; mix well, and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and remaining ingredients.
  4. Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture until they are just combined.
  5. Spray 12 muffin cups with cooking spray (or use paper liners/silicone cups) and divide the batter evenly among the nine cups.
  6. Bake 16 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

 

I love walnuts in these but Cary doesn’t like walnuts so I topped mine with them and his with chocolate prior to putting them in the oven. Teagan also loved these muffins and I feel good about giving them to her because I know exactly what is in them. Also I highly recommend getting some silicone baking cups if you don’t have them, they make life so much easier! These are my favorite ones. Happy Clean Eating! 🙂

This gown and hat set and matching lovey is from @themotherbabybond is literally the softest piece of clothing Beau has. The best part is it has magnetic closures; talk about easy 3am diaper changes! Their shop has sooo many options and prints! Go support the sweetest mother/daughter duo 💕
  • While I love precious posed photos, these are the kinds of photos I cherish the most. The ones that capture us just being us. Real life...Teagan wanted nothing to do with pictures that day and of course, Beau, the milk monster wanted to eat but all of that ended up resulting in this moment. I’m so grateful for @celticgrayphotography always being kind and patient with us and capturing the best of us!
  • Oh Beau, you’ve completely stolen our hearts 💙 #gerberphotosearch2018 #beaumontgomeryg
  • One of Teagan’s school pictures. I cannot take this. Yes, I’m crying 😭 she’s so beautiful and growing up right before my very eyes! 😍
  • Currently in the newborn haze. I won’t lie, a lot of days I miss lunch or find myself right here eating lunch on the floor keeping a newborn content while trying to entertain a toddler. Luckily, @ReadyPacFoods makes it super easy for me to eat while on the go and also get a healthy option in with these Bistro Single-Serve Salads. #WePackedYouLunch #sponsored
  • Sometimes I just stare at him and want to cry because I know this season of life is going to go so fast. Stay little my sweet Beau 💙 #beaumontgomeryg
  • I promise she really does love him! Lots of adjustments happening over here but we are all surviving one meltdown at a time 💕💙 #gaskellrascals
  • One week as a family of 4 and nothing has ever felt so right ☺️ #gaskellrascals 📷: @celticgrayphotography
