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! 🙂

  • Our little guy’s nursery is almost ready, just a few more finishing touches to the other side of the room and we will be done. It’s surreal to walk in this room and imagine him here. We decided to go a little more minimalistic this time around and this convertible crib from @deltachildren was the perfect addition. We also got a dual sided crib and toddler mattress to go along with it from them. Both are super affordable and I’ll be sharing more in my stories including links on where you can purchase. Only about 6 more weeks and you’ll be here sweet boy 💙 #33weekspregnant #sponsored #deltachildren
  • Holy moly 7 more weeks until our due date! The second half of this pregnancy has been flying by and I’ve never been so content to be so extremely achy and tired! Pregnancy after miscarriage definitely gives you this heightened appreciation for each passing day. I have this enormous amount of gratitude that God entrusted me with this perfect rainbow baby! 💙🌈 #33weekspregnant #rainbowbaby #pregnancyafterloss
  • I see so many littles heading back to school and it’s making me realize Teagan starts pre-school in just a few weeks and I have to make sure she’s equipped with all the essentials to keep her healthy. But first, tonight I’ll be going live at 9pm EST to talk all about the essential oils I’ve been using for pregnancy, preparing for labor and ones that will be imperative postpartum. I’ve already gotten so many amazing questions but feel free to leave more below! Essential oils can be super confusing at first but I hope I make it easier through these lives to see that they are actually the easiest thing to add into your toolkit! 💕 #32weekspregnant
  • Where are my pregnant moms at? I know you guys can relate! 🤣 Besides that, I can’t complain too much! I’m still dealing with nausea but overall so much better and I have a lot of energy since starting my new prenatals. I’m up 16 pounds and still working out just not everyday anymore. The countdown is on! Less than 2 months until this little guys arrival! 💙 #32weekspregnant #secondbaby

  • Did you know that your sense of smell is the only sense that stimulates your limbic system? It’s the sense that is most closely connected to memory and smell is highly emotive. It’s doesn’t matter what emotion I’m going through, there is an oil to help. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Be sure to check my highlights for a fun sign up promo! 💕🌈
