Healthy gluten free banana nut blender muffins made with oats and greek yogurt are so easy to make in the blender and a delicious make ahead breakfast or snack! (gluten-free, vegetarian)


  • 2 medium bananas
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp ground flax
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 c walnuts, roughly chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Lightly grease or line a muffin tin with liners.
  2. Place all muffin ingredients except for walnuts in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth and well combined.
  3. Stir in nuts. Scoop batter into cupcake pan using a large scoop or small measuring cup (about 1/4 cup per muffin). Top with additional walnuts if desired.
  4. Bake muffins at 375° F for 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before removing muffins to a cooling rack.


  • Storage: Because these muffins don't have a lot of sugar, they won't keep at room temperature for more than a couple of days. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator, or freeze them to take out and thaw as needed.
  • I like to line my muffin tin with paper or silicone liners and spray the liners. Because these muffins have no added oil, they need a little bit of help not sticking to the paper.
  • Blend up the dry ingredients, then add the wet. Stop to scrape down the edges as needed to get a smooth batter.
  • The muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Try not to over bake them so that they stay moist and tender.
  • Extra-ripe (read: brown) bananas will give you the best texture and flavor.

Ingredient Substitutions

  • You can use coconut sugar in place of the brown sugar if you'd like.
  • The flaxseed can be omitted if you don't have it.
  • Make sure to use certified gluten-free oats if necessary.
  • Feel free to switch the walnuts for pecans or another favorite nut.
