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! 🙂

  • What a blessing this girl has been to my life. We randomly got connected through Young Living a year ago and have been so close ever since. She has inspired me to spend time with the Lord daily, to be honest in the struggles I deal with and genuinely builds me up. When you find someone you 100% vibe with, cherish that friendship. Support each other through the highs and lows. @dontmesswithmama forever grateful to you for connecting me with this little Oklahoma gem 💎

  • Seeing the farm, the plants and everything that goes into making these oils and products is mind blowing. I feel so confident that God put Young Living in my life for a reason and I feel so grateful to see all of this first hand! My heart is forever changed. 💕

  • This weekend went by so fast 💨 I leave on Tuesday to head to Young Living’s annual convention in Utah and I’ll be gone for 5 days! I’ve never left Beau over night and the longest I’ve been away from Teagan in her whole life is a single night. I’m really sad about it 😭 I’m so excited to meet so many of my besties in person (finally) and I know this trip will bless me in so many ways but my mama heart is sad. So I’m just living in this picture of my sweet T making pizza this weekend 🍕 .

  • This little sweet pea finished up her first week of camp today! I just love seeing that sweet face light up when she’s having so much fun with her new friends. I try to remind myself that she is just like me. I need interaction and adult conversation. And she needs interaction and conversation with kids her age. There is so much value in these kiddos getting to regularly interact with other kids. I’m so grateful we were able to get her into camp this summer despite the move and looking forward to another one soon! 💕
  • It’s #internationalessentialoilsday so you know I am here.for.it! This whole rack of plant based goodness fueling our bodies daily. I love having something to go to for all the things before I reach for medicines that really aren’t so great for our bodies. Don’t get me wrong, medications are still used in this house as needed but a whole lot less than they were 2 years ago and it’s because we have better tools now. Starting on this little oily journey has completely changed our lives. Physically. Emotionally. Financially. I mean it still kind of blows my mind how much I simply didn’t know about doing better before. I find it really difficult to pick a favorite oil anymore but I’ll give ya my current favorite diffuser blend.
-White Angelica and Stress Away
What’s your favorite blend?
  • This might be one of my favorite stages with my kids. Pure joy. Pure laughter. Pure love. 💙 my sweet Beau, please always stay so happy at heart.
