Morning Glory Muffins
These healthy oat protein muffins are like morning glory muffins. They’re full of a little bit of everything!
While there’s no oatmeal, there is oat protein cereal. This cereal is made from upcycled oatmeal. After the oat milk is made from oatmeal, then the waste, which used to be discarded, is now upcycled and made into a healthy protein packed cereal!
These oat muffins aren’t really overly sweet and definitely not sugary.
Erring on the healthy side, they’re sweetened only slightly by date sugar.
If you do your research on date sugar here’s what you’ll consistently discover:
“Date sugar is healthier than refined white cane sugar. It has a lower GI value than honey, coconut palm sugar, and many other alternatives. It’s the highest antioxidant sweetener. Date sugar is also a rich source of minerals and fiber.” Source.

If you want to make these muffins gluten free, then no problem. I’d suggest using a one-to-one GF flour and swap it for the same amount that the recipe calls for. Yes, this is self-rising baking flour used, but there’s also additional baking powder and baking soda that can be used with the GF flour.
Banana Oat Breakfast Muffin
Another thing about these muffins is that you’ve got two fruits included, banana and pineapple. You could also throw in a vegetable. Yes, finely shredded carrots, one-half cup, for extra nutrition and flicks of color.
