Easy vegan gluten-free banana oat muffins that are equal parts healthy and mouthwatering! Make them in minutes with a minimal number of ingredients.


  • 3 cups rolled oats (certified  GF, as needed), divided
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 and 1/4 cups VERY ripe bananas, peeled
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used avocado oil)
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • Optional: finely chopped seeds, nuts or additional oats for sprinkling on top


  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Line 12 cups of a standard size muffin tin with liners.
  2. In a food processor, process 1 and 3/4 cups of the oats into a very fine flour; transfer to a large bowl. Stir in the remaining oats,  as well as the cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the bananas, water,  coconut sugar, oil, and flaxseed meal until blended. Add to the oat mixture, stirring until combined.
  4. Divide batter evenly among prepared cups. If desired, sprinkle tops with chopped seeds, nuts, or additional oats.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 28 to 33 minutes until golden brown and the centers spring back when lightly touched with fingertips.
  6. Cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes and then remove from muffin tin.


Storage: Store the cooled muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 days, refrigerator for 1 week, or freezer for up to 6 months.
