When you think of coffee cake, you don’t typically think “healthy”, but this plant-based recipe proves its possible! First of all, let’s talk about how amazing bananas are. Bananas are high in fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6. They’re also low in fat and cholesterol-free! Plus, their natural sweetness means you don’t need to add any extra sugar to these muffins (except for that crave-worthy cinnamon swirl, but even that uses a refined sugar-free option)!
Now onto my second favorite ingredient – oats! Oats are known for being an excellent source of fiber and protein. They contain beta-glucan which has been shown to reduce cholesterol levels and aid digestion. Oats are also rich in antioxidants which help protect against inflammation and cell damage.
To make these yummy coffee cake muffins, all you need is a blender and a few simple ingredients:
These muffins are perfect for breakfast on-the-go or as an afternoon snack paired with your favorite hot beverage (my suggestion is black coffee!). Additionally, you can even add some chopped nuts to the batter for extra flavor and crunch.
So there you have it – a delicious and healthy coffee cake muffin recipe that will leave you feeling satisfied and fuelled for the day ahead. Give them a try and let me know what you think! If you love these muffins, be sure to check out some of my other plant-based and gluten-free baked goods!
