Healthy gluten free muffins are my jam! Honestly, I think I'm getting a little obsessed.
I've been making no sugar, no fat, no flour oatmeal muffins for several years and love experimenting with different flavors and sweeteners. It all started with my classic Healthy Oatmeal Muffins which lead to chocolate muffins then pumpkin muffin, zucchini muffins, and more!
Healthy Banana Oatmeal Muffins Love
Honestly, it's gluten free, sugar free heaven around here!
My kids love all the different muffin flavors, I love having healthy baked goods on hand for a lunch box treat, a easy breakfast, or a quick snack.
There are so many things to love about this banana muffin recipe! My 3 favorite things:
- The recipe uses oatmeal in place of flour… no need to buy any special gluten free flour or baking mix!
- The muffins are sweetened with honey instead of processed white sugar or artificial sweetener. (I know, I know honey contains sugar… but it is my belief that a healthy balanced diet can contain naturally occurring sugars. I prefer to consume those instead of artificial sweeteners.)
- Blending the muffins make them easy to prepare and easy to clean up. Plus it gives the oatmeal muffins the smooth texture of classic banana bread.

- 3 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup banana, mashed (about 2–3 medium)
- 2 large eggs
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 cup skim milk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2/3 cup walnuts (chopped)
- 1/3 cup walnuts (for tops)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place all ingredients in blender. Puree until smooth.
- Stir nuts into batter if desired, do not blend.
- Allow batter to rest for 10 minutes.
- Line muffin tin with parchment muffin liners and fill ¾ full with batter (about 1/3 cup).
- Top muffins with nuts, if desired.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. (A toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin should come out clean.)
Use parchment baking cups. Healthy muffins have a habit of sticking to the baking cups and muffin tins. Parchment baking cups will prevent them from sticking, no greasing needed.
Let the muffin batter rest. Allow the batter to rest for 10 to 20 minutes before scooping it into the baking cups. This allows the oats to soften for more fluffy muffin.
Overfill the baking cups. Want your muffins to look as fluffy as mine? Fill the baking cups 3/4 full. Gluten-free muffins do not rise as much as traditional muffins so overfilling the tins will make them look taller.

Easy Blender Recipe
I make these muffins in the blender because it is less messy than the traditional bowl method. The blender grinds the oatmeal into flour as it mixes so the muffins have a smooth, flour-like texture.
Another bonus? Using whole oats in the blender means you don't have to mess with any unusual gluten free flours or additives such a xanthan gum. You probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now!
I hope you try this easy muffin recipe. You'll love how simple it is to make, your family will love the baked treats!
