Vegan Banana Oat Flour Muffins

Vegan Banana Oat Flour Muffins

I think my favourite part of transitioning into colder weather is all the delicious baking I get to do! 

Banana Oat Flour Muffins

I have a serious muffin addiction, so naturally, I love making healthy muffins. These muffins are the best because they are packed with nourishing ingredients like protein-rich oats and potassium-rich bananas. They are the best snack to help manage stress or to fuel after a workout. Plus they taste like banana bread, so that’s a huge plus.

These muffins are:

  • fluffy and moist
  • gluten-free and vegan
  • easy to snack on or take with you on-the-go

Banana Oat Flour Muffins


  • 2 tbsp. flaxseed meal (ground up flax seeds, I use a coffee grinder for mine)
  • 4 tbsp. filtered water
  • 2.5 medium-sized mashed bananas
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil 
  • 1/4 cup almond milk – homemade is best
  • 1/4 tsp. pure organic vanilla extract
  • 2 cups oat flour (ground up oats in a food processor until it forms a flour)
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 4 tsp. aluminium-free baking powder
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom
  • Pinch of salt


  • Preheat the oven to 375F.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the flaxseeds with the water and set aside for 10 mins.
  • In a bowl, mix together the mashed bananas with the melted coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla and flax seed mixture. Mix well until nicely combined.
  • Next, mix together the oat flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, shredded coconut and the spices.
  • Coat the muffin tin holes with a bit of coconut oil. Make sure everything is nicely combined before filling the muffin tin with the muffin mixture.
  • Bake for 25 minutes. Stick one muffin with a fork or toothpick and bake until it comes out clean – that’s when you know they’re done!

I topped my muffins with a crumble mixture of coconut sugar and almond pulp, but that’s totally optional. I recommend eating these muffins with a dollop of coconut yoghurt and almond butter – SOOOOO good.

  • Sisley! Love your posts and I’m excited to try your vegan banana muffins. I don’t see a way to print this recipe to fit nicely onto half or even one page. Old people like me like to print recipes!
    Lotsa love!

    • Hi, Sharron! Ah, shoot – I am actually trying to figure out a way to sort that out. Maybe try copying and pasting it into a Word Document and printing it there? I apologize! All my love!
