These muffins make for the perfect breakfast on the run. You can make a batch of these on the weekend and then have them as a quick and easy breakfast option during the week.

These muffins have a good balance of protein, healthy fats and carbohydrates. I haven’t added any sugar or other sweetener as they are sweet enough from the bananas and dried sultanas.

Makes: 12 muffins




  • Dry Ingredients
  • 125g blanched almond meal
  • 100g brown rice flour
  • 50g tapioca flour
  • 60g gluten-free rolled oats
  • 100g sultanas
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Wet Ingredients
  • 220g ripe bananas (approx. 3 bananas)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 eggs
  1. Preheat oven to 200˚C and line a 12-hole muffin tin with muffin papers.
  2. Add all the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix well until combined.
  3. Add the bananas, olive oil and eggs to a blender and blend into a thick creamy consistency. Pour into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix together until combined.
  4. Divide the mixture between each of the 12 muffin holes and top each muffin with a sprinkle of rolled oats.
  5. Bake for 30 mins until golden brown and cooked through.
