Healthy Blueberry Muffins

What are the ingredients?

Oat and rice flour: I wanted to mix 2 flours together this time, I think rice flour gives more lightness and airiness, but you can only use oat flour. You can make the oat flour by yourself just blend the oats in a food processor or blender.

Ripe bananas: The perfect ingredient for baking muffins. Ripe bananas giving both the sweet taste and the texture of a muffin you need.

Greek-style or vegan plain yogurt: Try to use yogurt without flavor and sugar to avoid sweetening muffins with unnecessary unhealthy sweeteners.
You can choose any of your favorite yogurts – vegan, lactose-free, greek style, and plain.

Honey: This is one of my favorite healthy and natural sweetener, but you can also replace it with agave or maple syrup.

Baking powder and baking soda: These ingredients will help muffins to rise, stay puffier, and more visually beautiful.

Coconut oil: Helps muffins stay moister and softer.

Blueberries: You can use large blueberries or wild blueberries, as well as any other berries.
