  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed

  • 3 tbsp water

  • 1/4 cup almond butter

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 3 small over-ripe bananas (about 1 cup, mashed)

  • 2 small zucchinis (2 cups, grated)

  • 1/2 cup almond milk

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3 cups old-fashioned gluten-free oats

  • 1 tbsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray muffin tin (or two) with cooking spray or line with silicone muffin liners.

  2. In a small bowl, add flax and water. Stir and set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, mash bananas with a fork. Add grated zucchini, almond milk, vanilla extract, almond butter, maple syrup, and flax mixture. Stir until combine.

  4. Add oats, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and add-in's of your choice (see below). Stir until combined.

  5. Spoon mixture into muffin cups (fill to top).

  6. Bake for 23-28 minutes (or until fork comes out clean). Cool on a wire rack.

  7. Once cooled, serve or store in an air-tight container in refrigerator or freezer.


  1. Don't squeeze water out of zucchini.

  2. You will have extra batter if you only use one muffin tin - make an oatmeal bake!

  3. Want less sugar? leave out the maple syrup & add extra ripe bananas for natural sweetness!
