Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 ripe medium (138g) banana
  • 3/4 cup Lifeway whole fat plain Kefir
  • 1/2 cup (110g) unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup (100g) fresh or frozen blueberries, see note

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In the blender or food processor, add the oats first and then the rest of the ingredients except the blueberries. Blend until smooth. Stir in half the blueberries.
  • Pour batter evenly into a greased or lined 12-cup muffin pan (see note). Top with remaining blueberries.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool completely (wait at least 10 minutes) before taking them out of the pan.

Notes

  • I recommend using fresh if possible. If using frozen, add them directly to the batter without thawing them. You can also toss them with a tablespoon or so of flour.
  • No kefir? Plain Greek yogurt (use the same amount or a bit less) will be the best alternative.
  • No dairy? Any plant-based alternative will work. Look for plain and unsweetened though as many contain added sugars. Several readers have told me that coconut yogurt worked really well!
  • No egg? Use a flax egg!
  • No applesauce? You can puree fresh apples or pears. Can also try using mashed banana or sweet potatoes (add a little bit of water so it's similar in consistency to applesauce).
  • No banana? Use 3 medjool dates (soaked in warm water for at least 30 minutes to make them easier to blend. Will also result in a smoother consistency.
  • I like to use a silicone baking mat as there's no need to grease and is easy to clean!
  • If you find that the muffins are too moist, put them in the fridge to help firm up.
  • Store in an airtight container for 3-5 days in the fridge or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
