Blueberry Banana Quinoa Oatmeal Muffins (gluten free)

I hope you had a wonderful Mother Day weekend. There are lots of wonderful ways to be mothers to children. I am so grateful to have a wonderful Mother that teaches me so very much.  I am grateful to be a Mother. It is what I always wanted to be when I grew up and I have not been disappointed with my choice. My husband and children made a terrific meal yesterday. I felt their love for me. 

These muffins got the thumbs up from those who ate them today. My grandson Jacob was going for 2nds or 3rds and he said "These are delicious." So that is a winner in my book. 


2 ripe banana mashed equal to 1 C 
 3/4  plain yogurt
1/2 C honey
2/3 C coconut oil
4 tsp vanilla
2 C quinoa flour or  oat, kamut, wheat, or spelt flour
1 1/2 C old fashioned oatmeal
4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon (heaping)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 C Blueberries

1. Heat oven to 375 bakes in 8-9 min

2. Mix banana, yogurt, honey, oil and vanilla together.

3. In a separate bowl mix all the dry ingredients together. Then combine with the wet ingredients. Fold in the blueberries gently.

4. Scoop into greased muffin pans. Place muffin pans in preheated oven. 

5. Remove from muffin pan and cool on cooling rack. Enjoy! 

6. Store leftovers in airtight container in the fridge. You could also make extras and freeze them.

  2. Absolutely love this recipe! I made them every week for my kids to have for breakfast. I didn't have quinoa flour the first time I made them so I just used the Namaste baking blend GF flour and it worked great as well. I have tried other variations as well (added pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice along with the cinnamon, chocolate chips, etc) Thanks so much for a keeper!

    1. Thank you so much! That is wonderful to hear that they have worked out so well for you. That makes us very happy.

  3. A healthy oatmeal muffin is right up my ally. I would devour this!
