Super Simple Vegan Oat Chia Breakfast Muffin

Love baking but find you’re short on time? Check out our ultra-tasty vegan oat chia banana muffin recipe. With only 15 minutes of active prep and 30 minutes of baking, you can relish the flavors of healthy homemade gluten-free baked goods without disrupting your schedule.

Hearty ingredients like oats and banana help make these delicious muffins super satiating while chia seeds offer a boost of iron, omegas, and fiber. Healthy fats are represented by coconut oil and plant-based milk. A dash of cinnamon offers anti-inflammatory properties for a deceptively nutritious treat. Add a little maple syrup, and you’ve got a subtle hit of sweetness that will satisfy your sugar cravings without going overboard.

Made from vegan and gluten-free ingredients, these muffins are light and packed with flavor with the perfect amount of crumb. Each muffin boasts 4 grams of protein and can be toasted and smeared with a little nut butter if you’re looking for a little extra protein in your breakfast.

While we love them as part of a healthy, well-balanced breakfast, these vegan oat chia banana muffins are fantastic as a midday snack to help keep the afternoon slump at bay or a lightly sweet treat. Pack these in your kids’ lunchboxes as a healthier alternative to store-bought baked goods.

This quick baking project is something you can do as part of your weekend meal prep. They’re so simple to make, you can even whip up a batch when you’re enjoying a mellow night at home. You can customize them to suit your tastes – add in dried fruit or nuts or a little extra spice to kick up the flavor to the next level.
