Gluten-Free Banana Chai Spice Muffins

Banana Chai Spice Muffins
These healthy Banana Chai Spice Breakfast Muffins are made from a blend of oat + almond flour for a tender muffin full of chai spices. They are vegan, gluten free and free of refined sugars so you can be sure to start of your day on a healthy note! I love making a big batch of these so I can keep them in the freezer. Then when I want one, I pop it in the toaster oven or microwave for a quick and healthy breakfast. Are you looking for more quick and healthy breakfast recipes? Check out some of my favorites!

Servings 12 muffins


  • 1 egg (or 1 flax egg = 1 tbsp flaxseed meal + 3 tbsp water)
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

  • Heat the oven to 350ºF. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin and set aside.
  • Combine flax and water and set aside to gel while you prepare the remaining ingredients if not using regular egg.

  • Fill each muffin cup ¾ of the way.
  • Top each muffin with a sprinkle of sugar in the raw.
