When life gives you bananas, make muffins! That’s how the saying goes right? One of the biggest challenges my clients have when they are navigating foods that may trigger acne is figuring out what snacks they can eat that won’t cause a breakout. These gluten-free, vegan banana muffins are an excellent morning or afternoon snack option as they have no dairy, no gluten and no-refined sugar, yet they are full of healthy fats and lots of fibre.
From start to finish, these muffins take less than 30 minutes to make and will please even the toughest critic. (They are officially husband approved!)
These muffins are also a pretty good base recipe that you can build upon and customize to suit your own personal preferences. If you want to mix up the flavours, then I encourage you to play and experiment!
Here are some suggestions to try adding:
¾ cup of shredded carrot or zucchini for extra fibre
¾ cup of frozen blueberries
½ cup of dark, dairy-free chocolate chips
Adding a chopped nut and seed crumble to the top of the muffin
Different spices, such as ginger or cardamom
Also, if you’re new to gluten-free flour, I recommend using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour for these muffins. This flour alternative is cost-effective and readily available in most grocery stores and online, so you’ll have no problem finding it.
I just want to warn you, once you start making these muffins, you may not want to stop. I’ve made these twice this week so far! So if you have some ripe bananas begging to be eaten, why not try making these tasty, healthy, skin-friendly muffins!
