WHOLEY MOLY BREKKY MUFFINS | super easy & sustaining

If you are what you eat, then I am mostly oat. LOL. I adore them. They are so hearty, filling and sustaining. So I am always looking for new ways to use them. 

These muffins are an adaptation from my yummy brekkie bickies in my second recipes book WHOLE (which you can find here and at all good book stores and boutiques). I think they are best eaten straight from the oven while they are still warm, like all good baking. Most of the time, however, I am nabbing one as I jostle out the door barred by my spatially unaware pooch! 

Pretty dang proud of this one and I've enjoyed these for weeks now while I've worked on refining the recipe. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Makes: 18 mini muffins or 8 medium muffins 
Prep time: 5 minutes 
Cook time: 20-35 minutes 
Difficulty: Easy 
2 ripe frozen bananas 
2 cups organic, whole rolled oats 
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons shredded coconut
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder 
1 teaspoon vanilla (I used powder) 
1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
1 lemon, juice and zest
1 cup frozen blueberries 
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius fan-forced. 

Add all ingredients except for the blueberries to your food processor. Pulse to combine and blend until smooth and evenly combined.
Add blueberries and mix well. 
Fill silicone cup cake moulds with the mixture. 
Place in the oven to bake for 20 minutes for mini muffins and 35 minutes for medium-large. Remove from the oven and leave to rest for 10 minutes or so before releasing muffins from moulds. 
Best served warm for brekkie or on the run, plus makes a sustaining take-to-work snack. 


Some other flavours you can create by substituting the blueberries and coconut: 

Apple Cinnamon - 1 cup chopped apple + 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Double Choc - 1/2 cup organic dark chocolate chips + 2 teaspoons cacao powder

Salted Caramel - 8 medjool dates, chopped + 1/2 teaspoon sea salt flakes, scattered over muffins

Raspberry white chocolate ~ 1 cup frozen raspberries + 1/2 cup plant based white choc chips

    Hi Harry,
    Thank you, I made the muffins; they were perfect! I didn’t have the patience to freeze bananas first, so used ripe once, I replaced the blue berries with black berries (makes them cheaper), and did not use maple syrup. I took them to work and they were gone in a flash. Also made your beetroot, ginger & lime pie from ‘Whole’ – Divine!
    Thanks again for sharing!

      Oh how fabulous Lieve!
      Thank you for sharing this with me. It means the world!
      I have made multiple batches with both frozen and non (bananas) have found they turn out ever so slightly different. Both a perfect!
      Thanks lovely!

        Thank you, Harry! That’s good to know. Do you freeze yours?

          I have not been able to freeze any muffins yet Lieve! They dont hang around long enough.. hahah
          But if you do let me know how you go. I dont think cooked cakes and things ever really as as good as fresh when they have been frozen and thawed. xx

      Hi Ally!

      I have never used an alternative to bananas for these. You could try stewed apple?

    These are divine thanks Harry! My toddler & I both enjoy them. Just wondering how I should store them – in the fridge or not?
    Thanks, Mel
