Ever since my girls started school I have been making these Breakfast Muffins several times already. I have tried to come up with a refined sugar free recipe and I am happy with how these breakfast muffins turned out. The muffins are soft and fluffy, sweetened with ripe bananas and honey, and packed with berries and oats.
The recipe is very easy and very quick to prepare, using just one large bowl as ingredients are added one at a time. To make these muffins, you’ll need a few simple ingredients. You will need all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, eggs, buttermilk, honey, mashed bananas, oats, vegetable or coconut oil.
You can make variations to these breakfast muffins, add different fruits or replace fruits with some bittersweet chocolate or nuts. These muffins are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth without the use of refined sugar.
These Refined Sugar Free Breakfast Muffins with bananas and honey are a healthy and tasty way to start your day. Enjoy them warm from the oven, or wrap them up and take them with you for a quick and convenient breakfast on the go.
Hope you will try these out and let me know how these muffins turned out for you. Tag me on Instagram if you do and enjoy!
