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.

Pro tips to make Chocolate Banana Bread more delicious:

  • Use only very overripe bananas. Bananas are the key ingredient for this banana bread recipe, if the bananas will be riper, sweeter, and creamier, then tastier the banana bread will be.
  • Don’t over-mix the batter if you want to get Banana Bread fluffy and soft. Over-mixing can make it heavy and hard.
  • Don’t mash the bananas fully, leave the banana pieces or chunks in the batter, because they will make the bread juicier and creamier.
  • You can use any plant milk which you want such as oat, almond, coconut, etc. Pay attention to whether it’s sweetened or not to not over-sweeten the batter.
  • You can try to mix oat flour with buckwheat, it could work well.
  • You can add nuts to the mixture if you want or spread over with them The Banana Bread to get more crispiness.
