Gluten Free Vegan Banana Oats Spinach Muffins

Gluten Free Vegan Dairy Free Green Muffins


I just baked a batch of these green healthy beauties (banana oats spinach muffins) for the upcoming school week. These are very healthy and I am using them for delicious and healthy snacks for my daughters in their lunch boxes. After a long summer break, I am enjoying coming up with fun ideas for great homemade snacks to entice my children to want to eat their lunches. As a busy mom it helps me to know my girls are eating well at school to ensure optimal learning experiences.

If you ever had to let go of tasty muffins or cakes due to egg or gluten, this recipe is also for you. These banana oats spinach muffins are made from oats flour as a base, with banana and spinach to enhance the nutritional value and taste of the muffins. Oats flour is considered safe to consume for those with gluten allergies or gluten intolerance. Due to its high fiber content, oats flour reduces the heart disease risk, lowers cholesterol, helps diabetics and decreases blood pressure (Reference: https://draxe.com/oat-flour/).  Lastly, Oats are rich in wide variety of minerals and vitamins. They make you feel full for longer.

All my friends and family who tasted it absolutely loved the moist and tender muffins. They could not believe that these were gluten free and vegan.

  1. Do you steam the spinach before adding it to the rest of the wet ingredients and blending it? Also would you recommend using bagged small leaf baby spinach for this or would this even work with regular fresh bunch of spinach? Thanks


  2. Tried them today morning. Amazing texture and taste. Subbed Maple syrup for Honey and eyeballed the Spinach as I only had frozen (put in 1 cup plus a handful).
    I am a silent member of Bento moms as well. It’s amazing how your recipes toe the line between healthy and tasty. As a full time working outside mom, incredibly helpful to have such recipes on hand!!!!

    1. Thank you for trying and leaving a positive comment ? I am so glad that you loved the recipe. Being a mom always experimenting to add some healthy factors in my recipes. If you happen to try more recipes, would love to hear your feedback. Keep cooking ?

  3. Hi Rupali, Love your presentation and recipes that were made in a healthier way. Wanted to try this recipe, but when I check baking soda link it takes me to baking powder, could you update the link. And can I switch maple syrup with organic or brown sugar. Please post more baking recipes as wanted to try them for my son who loves cakes and cupcakes.

    1. Hello Indu,
      First of all thank you so much for visiting my blog and liking it. Second yes you can substitute brown sugar in the recipe. First try substituting little more than half of the maple syrup quantity and see if muffins come out enough sweet. Lastly thank you for bringing the glitch regarding baking soda in my notice. I’ll fix it.

      Thank you ?
      Rupali

  4. Hi Rupali,
