There’s been a little bit of a craze or trend in the instagram world lately, it seems like every other post I see is sugar or flour free muffins or mini-loaves. These are conceptually similar to Banana Oat Breakfast Rounds or “Oaties” Pancakes or Waffles except they are baked in muffin tins or loaves. We have so many ways to combine bananas, oats, and eggs! Unfortunately I haven’t discovered a plant-based version of these yet that works well. If somebody has one, send it my way!

I’ve curated a little collection of these gems from instagram, for your breakfast enjoyment and experimentation, and to showcase our wonderful community. These are perfect to make ahead for a busy week, on-the-go, or for travel. Enjoy!

Note: All of these recipes are compliant with the BLE female weight loss food plan and make one complete breakfast.

Let me say that again – YES you eat an ENTIRE batch for ONE breakfast. 🙂 And yes, you could easily multiply the recipes and batch cook.

Blackberry Muffins

  • 3 oz mashed banana
  • 1 oz nut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 oz quick oats
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract

Mix all together. Pour into 5 muffin tins. Add 3 oz blackberries to batter (I do this separately so it turns out evenly.) Bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes.

Combine the banana, milk, egg, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices. Fill greased muffin tins and add nuts on top. Bake 25-30 min at 350. I like them chilled and set before trying to remove them from the pan.
