Nutritious Sugar & Gluten-free Muffins

Makes 6 large muffins or 12 small.


  • 2 cups of oat flour.*
  • Cinnamon to the taste
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda.
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 3 bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut oil.
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla essence.
  • 1/2 cup of raisins and figs,  or dates, soaked beforehand in water, enough to cover.


  1. First mix in a bowl the flour, baking soda and cinnamon.
  2. In a large bowl whip together the eggs, bananas, vanilla and coconut oil.
  3. When fluffy and unctuous, start adding the flour and whisk with a wooden spoon.
  4. Mix in the dried fruits with the water.
  5. Add nuts if desired.
  6. Spoon batter in muffin cups and add the 1/2 nut on the top.
  7. Cook at 350 F for about 35-40 minutes for the large muffins and less for the smaller ones.

*I sometimes use the fibre left from my almond milk. Then I use 1 cup of oat flour and 1 cup of that almond fibre.

I also vary the recipe. For example: 

  • Instead of the dried figs, use 1 cup of walnuts and 1/2 cup of organic raisins. Or substitute the raisins, for a seedless date to top the muffin when ready to cook, or for one cup of blueberries (one of my favourites).
  • Or I make them with 1 large grated apples instead of the blueberries with raisins or some dates cut in small pieces.
  • Or raspberries with coconut and cardamon….
  • Or strawberries with rhubarb 3 for 1….

Have fun with your inspiration and creativity!
