Banana Almond Meal Muffins | Healthy Breakfast Muffins(Butterless,No Oil)

I had been looking out for healthy muffins for quite sometime now and my search ended in this post.It has all the healthy and yummy flavors,perfect for a filling breakfast or after school snack.These muffins uses almond meal and oats flour.They are soft muffins but lack fat content may that be of oil or butter.The original recipe calls for two bananas but I reduced as kids don't like banana flavors in bakes these days.But you can always add two or add in more milk like I did and so are slightly dry.They taste mild sweet but alter as per sweet tooth.These are perfect for all age groups unless you are allergic to almonds and can be served with a cup of hot coffee/tea/milk.My family loved this healthy muffins and is good for a change from the loads of sugar packed  muffins.They can be enjoyed guilt free and almonds can be sneaked easily in this recipe.Do try and enjoy !!



Preparation time~15 minutes
Baking time~ 25-30 mins
Serves ~8 muffins
Ingredients
almond meal 1 cup + 2tbsp
oats flour 1/2 cup
baking powder 1 tsp
eggs 2
*dark brown sugar 1/4 cup
banana 1
vanilla extract 1tsp
whole milk/almond milk 3tbsp or less


Method
  • If you don't have ready made oats flour like me,then grind the quick oats in blender to get oats flour.Sift the flour,add in almond meal(I used blanched almond meal) and add in baking powder.Mix well.

  • Mash the banana in a a bowl using a fork and add the eggs,whisk and add in vanilla extract.
  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F/180 degrees C and line a muffin tray with paper liners.
  • Now,start mixing the dry ingredients in the wet,mix to incorporate in batches.Add milk to make the batter in ribbon consistency.
  • Add spoonful of batter in the paper liners until 3/4 th full.Place in  oven and bake for 25 -30 mins or tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
  • Cool on wire rack and enjoy with a cup of milk or tea !!



NOTES
* The original recipe calls for agave nectar or honey but I used dark brown sugar.The amount of sugar used in this recipe yields mild sweet muffins so increase as per sweet tooth.
* For making almond meal,refer this link.
* You can add almond milk instead of regular whole milk.
* The original recipe calls for two bananas but I was apprehensive about dominant banana flavors so just reduced to one and increased the milk instead.You can use two but then alter the quantity of milk accordingly.
* The recipe is adapted from here but slightly modified.
* You can top it up with some nuts or rolled oats.
