These are some of our favorite muffins! If you have celiac disease, you will need to be careful to use totally gluten free oats. We just buy them by the 50 lb bag, since our sensitivities can handle some cross-contamination. This recipe makes 36 muffins. We like to freeze some for later!
- 5 cups already ground organic oats (We grind ours in the blender. You can use oat flour, but we like the heavier texture.)
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 6 Tbl canola oil
- 2/3 cup rice milk
- 4 Tbl ground organic golden flax mixed with 8 Tbl hot water (mix and allow to form a gel)
- 6 – 8 very ripe bananas
- 1 cup mini vegan chocolate chips (totally optional, but we consider these to be dessert!)
The kids can measure everything into one bowl and peel the bananas. (It helps to cut the tops for them. Really ripe bananas can get super messy!) Wait to add the chocolate chips until everything else is blended.
Spray the muffin tins with oil, spoon mixture evenly into 36 tins. Bake 16-20 minutes until lightly browned and a toothpick can be inserted and come out clean.
