How to make these vegan strawberry oat muffins
First, before anything else, grab your ingredients.
This is important. Because if you don’t have any oat flour, you’ll need to grind up some oats, and depending on what you have to grind them in, it might take a few minutes.
I feel so fortunate that my husband bought me this for our anniversary this year. The last time I made oat flour, it literally took 10 seconds to make!
Once you have all your ingredients ready to go; preheat your oven to 400°F and set up your favorite baking cups (or line a muffin tray).
Now it’s Time to Make the Batter for Your Strawberry Muffins!
Then mash your ripe bananas and add to a mixing bowl. You can mash them with a fork, use a blender, or any other way you can think of. Seriously, it doesn’t matter.
If you don’t have ripe bananas, fear not!
Simply squeeze your bananas gently, while they are still inside their peel. This will help make them mushy before even opening them up. You can also do this with ripe bananas to make them easier to mash. Just be careful doing this if you bananas are super ripe, as they may start to open by themselves!
Next, add in all your wet ingredients and stir well.
If you’re trying to keep this as plant based as possible, or simple don’t like using oil in your baked goods, just replace it with applesauce. I always keep a couple of the individual sized applesauce cups on hand for baking, especially when my kids are toddlers!
After the wet, comes the dry ingredients.
Be sure to add everything in and then mix well. I always start by stirring the top layer (aka the dry ingredients) together, before mixing in the wet ingredients.
You may see other muffin recipes, or other baked good recipes, use two bowls, one for wet and one for dry ingredients. Well, I don’t do that, I have three kids and I don’t have the time to wash any extra dishes. So, if you’re like me, just do what I do; it doesn’t make a difference with the final outcome of the muffins!
Add in the strawberries and apples
Finally, dice up the apple, small or medium chunks depending on how you like them, and slice up the strawberries.
Gently add and stir them into the batter.
Then scoop the batter into the muffin cups or muffin tray.
Bake for about 20 minutes, then let cool and enjoy!
When done, they shouldn’t be dark on top. My kids and I enjoy them lightly golden. Just be sure they aren’t mushy on the inside, but moist.
You can test this by poking them in the middle with a toothpick and making sure it comes out clean. If it doesn’t come out clean, put them back in the oven for a couple more minutes.
