  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk or any other milk
  • 2 large eggs (or use flax eggs for vegan) (For each flax egg - 1 tablespoon flax seed + 3 tablespoons water)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup OR honey
  • 4 teaspoons melted coconut oil OR canola oil *coconut oil will harden with any cold liquids - this is totally normal and will melt down once baked
  • 1/4 cup creamy almond butter or your favorite nut or seed butter
  • 1 medium-sized ripe banana mashed
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats gluten free as needed
  • 1/2 banana sliced for garnish
  • chopped walnuts , optional for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or line baking sheet with silicone liners. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flax seeds and water to make the flax egg. Set aside until thickened (about 2 minutes) (Skip if using regular egg). After 2 minutes, whisk in milk, maple syrup, coconut oil, mashed banana, almond butter, vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Fold in the oats.
  3. Divide batter evenly into prepared muffin tin or silicone muffin liners. Top each serving with sliced bananas and chopped walnuts, if desired.

  4. Bake in preheated oven for 18-25 minutes, or until set.
  5. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing from tin. Enjoy immediately or freeze in a freezer-safe bag or container for up to 3 months. Reheat in the microwave when ready to enjoy.
