  • Oil of choice for greasing the muffin tin
  • ¾ cup rolled oats (not instant)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 bananas medium to large in size
  • zest from one lemon optional
  • 1 tsp  vanilla extract  preferably with no added sugar
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries rinsed and well-drained (you can substitute frozen)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Grease a 12-muffin pan with an oil of choice, or use paper liners
  • Put the oats, salt, and baking soda in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Process them into an even-textured flour.
  •  Add in the eggs, bananas, lemon zest if using, and vanilla and process until smooth.
  • Add the almond flour and process until well-combined.
  • Pour or spoon some batter into each muffin cup, filling them halfway. Sprinkle a few blueberries in each cup, then distribute the rest of the batter. Top the muffins with the remaining blueberries, gently pressing them into the batter to anchor them.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before removing from the pan.


Gluten-free muffins: Use gluten-free rolled oats. 
Nut-free muffins: Substitute the 2 cups of almond flour for ½ cup coconut flour. (You need much less coconut flour, as it absorbs moisture.) 
Grain-free muffins: Omit the oats and increase the almond flour to 2½ cups. 
Other berry muffins: Replace the blueberries with other berries of choice, such as strawberries or raspberries. 
Banana-nut muffins: Omit the blueberries and add ½ cup chopped nuts like walnuts or pecans in their place along with ¼ teaspoon of a warm spice like cardamom or nutmeg.
