Low-fat banana blueberry muffins are soon to be a favorite. A tender muffin with rich banana flavor and blueberries in every bite. I have found fresh blueberries are best but not required for these muffins.
I am sure you have heard how healthy blueberries are for our bodies.
Here are a few reasons why you should include this sweet, nutritious fruit in your diet:
- It may help reduce the risk of heart disease
- Help in strengthening bones
- They are nutrient dense
- High antioxidant levels
- Protect against aging
- Aid in maintaining brain function and memory
To Make Low-Fat Banana Blueberry Muffins, You Will Need These Ingredients:
- Oat flour ~ certified gluten-free if needed
- Baking soda
- Baking powder ~ corn-free if needed
- Chopped Walnuts ~ optional; omit for nut-free
- Bananas ~ no spots for Low FODMAP
- Vanilla yogurt ~ I used Yami Lactose Free, sub dairy-free if needed
- Pure maple syrup
- Any milk or non-dairy milk ~ I used Macadamia Milk
- Pure vanilla extract
- Fresh blueberries ~ frozen are ok, but I prefer fresh for these muffins
Like many muffin recipes, this banana blueberry muffin can also be made into delicious baked donuts. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
I like to make 12 muffins and use the rest of the batter for pancakes. For the best and fastest pancakes, I use my Dash Mini Maker. The pancakes are delicious and a fun handheld snack for kids too.
Freeze leftovers or store them in an air-tight container for 2-3 days.
