Healthy Oat Flour Blueberry Muffins

Mmm. There’s nothing like a light and fluffy blueberry muffin. Blueberries are one of my favourite berries out there. I love putting them on salads, blueberry pancakes, yogurt bowls and of course in these muffins.

I’ve used blueberries in this recipe because we had some frozen blueberries in the freezer but you can put in other berries or chocolate chips as well.

These muffins are an ideal pre/post workout snack as well. They are great pre-workout because they provide some carbohydrates through the banana, oats and honey. AKA fuel! They are also great post workout to replenish your glycogen stores after all the hard work. They’re super light and airy so you don’t need to worry about any discomfort while you workout either.

For this recipe I have used oat flour by blending old fashion rolled oats in a high speed blender, but regular all purpose flour or gluten-free flour can be used as substitutes as well. To sweeten these muffins up I used two ripe bananas with a little honey to go along with it. You also get some sweetness from the blueberries. An important tip for these muffins is loading them with blueberries, they are definitely the star of the show.

These muffins are super quick to prepare and take around 17 minutes to bake. They make for the perfect sweet snack on their own, or with a little nut butter on top. If you are like me today, with my afternoon iced coffee.
