Gluten-Free‌ ‌Banana‌ ‌Oat‌ ‌Muffins‌ ‌ ‌

Made with a few simple ingredients, these banana oat muffins are extremely delicious. Featuring my special gluten-free all-purpose flour blend, pea protein powder, and whole grain oats, no one will ever know the difference between these muffins and wheat banana oat muffins.

Sweetened with stevia, these banana oat muffins are just as sweet as muffins made with refined sugar, which means you don’t have to worry about the calories or negative side effects of traditional sugar. Of course, these banana oat muffins would not be complete without a dash of spices. Cinnamon and nutmeg add a dose of warm, delicious flavor to these muffins.

These banana oat muffins can also be frozen if you do not have time to defrost them on your countertop; pop a muffin in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute just until they are warmed through. 

The Health Benefits Of Bananas 

Bananas are grown all over the world. In fact, bananas are the fifth most important food crop in the world.

In ancient times they were used to treat several medical conditions, such as decreasing the risk of many chronic degenerative disorders. Furthermore, bananas are an excellent source of potassium. One banana gives you 23% of the recommended daily amount of potassium.

Potassium maintains the muscles and inhibits muscle spasms. Moreover, studies also suggest that potassium may also decrease blood pressure in potassium deficient persons. Potassium may also decrease your risk of developing a stroke. 

In addition to this, bananas are also a rich source of vitamins. Bananas contain vitamin A which is responsible for healthy teeth, bones, soft tissue, and so much more functions.

Vitamin B6 supports the body’s immune system and boosts brain and heart health, while vitamin C supports healing and the growth of tissue and ligaments. Vitamin D is also found in bananas and helps the body absorb calcium.

The Health Benefits Of Oats 

Oats are an underrated whole grain. Not only are they naturally gluten-free, and most studies that evaluated oats showed that consuming oats for a short time can decrease the total plasma cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol levels.

Both of these factors contribute to the development of coronary heart disease. The reduction of cholesterol is mainly due to the soluble fiber β-glucan. This component interacts with the reabsorption of bile acid in the stomach and decreases cholesterol levels. 

Furthermore, oats contain more than 20 unique polyphenols and avenanthramides. These compounds contain strong antioxidant abilities in vitro and in vivo.

Moreover, the polyphenols in oats possess anti-inflammatory, antiproliferative, and anti-itching capabilities. These polyphenols provide a level of extra protection against conditions such as coronary heart disease, colon cancer, and skin irritation.

The Health Benefits Of Pea Protein Powder 

These banana oat muffins also contain pea protein powder. Pea protein powder is a supplement produced by extricating protein from yellow peas.

Pea protein is a popular ingredient that’s used to increase the amount of protein in smoothies or shakes. Recently it is becoming a common ingredient in baked goods. Pea protein powder is naturally gluten-free, vegan, and hypoallergenic.

Pea protein powder is rich in iron and may even stimulate weight loss and promote muscle mass and heart health. In addition to this, pea protein also contains other health benefits such as anabolic properties, reducing blood pressure, and hypolipidemic effects.

Pea protein can also help you feel satiated for longer periods. In addition to this, pea protein, as well as its hydrolysates, also have antioxidant, antihypertensive, and modulating intestinal bacteria properties. However, more research has to be conducted in order to understand the effect of pea protein on the body.
