I’ve always loved banana bread, and I’ve been obsessed with muffins recently. So I’ve been testing out our user’s gluten free banana bread recipes and decided to turn one into a healthy muffin recipe. After testing 4 different recipes, I finally got the recipe right! This recipe is SO fluffy and moist and easy to make. I also added in chia seeds, walnuts, and gluten-free steel cut oatmeal to up the protein and fiber!
Further Food Commentary:
Making muffins during the weekend is an easy way to prep on-the-go breakfast components or snack choices. Homemade muffins usually stay good for the week, so they can be a great addition if you do weekly meal prep.
These muffins are full of great nutrient dense whole foods. The higher healthy fat content from the walnuts and chia seeds will help keep you full longer. Bananas are a good source of potassium, an essential mineral for managing healthy blood pressure levels and heart function. They are also an excellent source of vitamin B6, which plays major roles in metabolism, nervous system health, and red blood cell production.
Having it for breakfast? Pair with some peanut butter or a hard-boiled egg for more protein. These are great for those who are gluten intolerant or have celiac disease and for those following a low FODMAP diet.
