Time to Bake!

with just 4 simple ingredients :-)










3 cups old-fashioned oats
¼ cup almond or coconut milk
5 average-sized bananas
1 cup blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease a tray of muffin tins.
  3. Combine the oats, milk, and bananas in a food processor.
  4. Mix on medium speed until thick and creamy.
  5. Do not over-mix!
  6. Fold the blueberries into the batter.
  7. Fill the muffin tins near the rim (if dome-sculpting*, now is the time).
  8. Bake for 18-20 minutes.
  9. If a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean… done!
  10. If the toothpick comes out with residue, bake for another minute or two.
  11. Remove from the oven and let stand until cool enough to handle… fin :-)

Nutrition Preservation:
These are healthy muffins, made without the use of commercial leavening agents (like baking soda/powder, etc.) with the intent to preserve the nutritional value. Therefore, these muffins are heavy and very filling (unlike the more traditional varieties). Subsequently, these muffins will not rise much. *So in order to get the “round tops” as seen in the featured image, you will have to add the dome yourself before it goes into the oven.
Hint: get ready to sharpen your sculpting skills!

Need for Sweet:
These muffins are only as sweet as the ripe fruit used. So if you’re looking for something sweeter, and maybe more importantly something that provides additional B-vitamins, you may adjust the recipe ingredients to include maple syrup. How? Instead of a whole quarter cup of almond/coconut milk, use 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and 2 tablespoons of almond/coconut milk.

Flavor Dominance:
The banana taste will overpower the blueberries. I mean, after all, we are using 5 bananas lol If you would like to alter this flavor-dominance, just replace bananas with blueberries in the blended batter mixture using a 1:1 (one to one) ratio. For example: before the bananas are added, replace 1 cup of bananas with 1 cup of blueberries, or half a cup with a half a cup, etc.

Add-ins and Alternatives:
After the batter is blended, mix in one cup of chopped walnuts or pecans to add texture and greatly enhance the nutritional value! If you want a banana-oatmeal muffin, possibly with nuts but maybe without the berries, simply leave the blueberries out of the batter and proceed as normal. And here’s something you can give a go: instead of pouring the batter in muffin tins, try using it in a skillet or waffle-iron to make pancakes and waffles!
