  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • ½ tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tablespoon aluminum-free baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sodium-free baking soda

No sugar, no flour, no oil, no salt. No problem!

Make these in a silicone muffin pan so you never have to buy paper liners again.


Preheat oven to 350º F.

Line a muffin pan with 12 cupcake liners.

Grind oats into a flour.

Place in a large bowl and add all the other dry ingredients.

Puree bananas in a food processor fitted with the “S” blade until smooth.

Add the apple juice, applesauce, extract and apple cider vinegar and process again until combined.

Pour over dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

Do not over mix.

Pour into muffin liners filling about 23 full.

Bake for 20-22 minutes until tops are golden brown and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Chef’s Note: Gently stir in 2 cups of frozen blueberries for blueberry banana muffins and increase baking time 8-10 minutes.
