Cinnamon and Spice Blender Muffins. Vegan. GF.
Cinnamon & spice… & yes everything nice! These muffins are so delectable. Nutritionally dense, grain & refined sugar free. I make these muffins for my clients who don’t like sweets. Each & every time I get a call/text exclaiming joy for these. They are so stupid easy… it’s insane. If you have 5 minutes to spare – you can totally whip these up for a heart healthy snack for you & your family.
Also, consider making more to freeze or for a foodie gift for a teacher/friend or family member.
3 cups of rolled oats (oats are naturally gluten free)
2 cups water
3/4 c of walnuts (one of the best heart healthy nuts)
1/2 of a very ripe banana, peeled
1/4 c of maple syrup
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of ground ginger or 1 inch nub of fresh ginger, peeled
1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1 or 2 pinches of salt, (1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt)
1.5 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Spray your muffin tin with coconut oil & set that aside.
Into a Vitamix or high speed blender, add the ingredients in order as listed. Blend on level 6-8 for at least 45 seconds to ensure that the nuts & ginger have blended down. Fill each muffin tin with 3/4 of the way filled. Repeat. Bake for 20-22 minutes and remove. Let cool completely prior to serving.
I just received Native’s new vegan hazelnut spread & teamed it up with these muffins. HEAVENLY!
