Cinnamon and Spice Blender Muffins. Vegan. GF.

img_4040

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.


Ingredients:

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

Method:

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.

  1. These look so simple and delicious, like I could actually make them in the morning, and I’m not a morning person. I may try to add some protein powder though…can’t help myself from trying. Thanks for the beautiful photos too 🙂

  2. Came to leave a comment for the Instagram giveaway but stumbling on this awesome recipe seems like a win either way 🙂
