Dry Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups oat flour (250g) (alternatively, 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats, pulsed in a food processor or blender into a fine flour)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 4 SMALL, ripe, organic bananas, mashed (around 340g) (Or 3 LARGE bananas)
  • 3 SMALL organic banana peels (around 150g) (Or 2 LARGE peels)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp honey (omit if making pancakes)
  • 1 tsp vanilla


Prep the banana peels

  • Trim the ends off of the bananas. Peel the bananas and set the fruit aside. Chop the peels into large pieces.
  • Boil the peels in water for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool a bit.

Prep your oat flour

  • If you don't have oat flour on hand, make some! Measure 2.5 cups of old fashioned oats (about 250g) and pulse in a blender or food processor until it's a fine flour consistency.

Make your muffins

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • When the banana peels are cool (enough so that they don't cook the eggs when you mix them), add them to a blender with the rest of the wet ingredients. Blend until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients and whisk until fully combined.
  • Measure batter into 12 muffin cups lined with muffin liners (or not!)
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean.


This recipe would be great with walnuts, chocolate, blueberries, or other addition. Just add your ingredients to the batter after mixing the wet and dry ingredients together. Let me know what you have tried!
You can also make pancakes with the same recipe. Just omit the honey and cook over medium heat to avoid burning the pancakes.
