Ingredients

flour substitute 1 cup (I used tapioca flour)
ground cinnamon 2 teaspoon
pinch of salt
oats 1 ¼ cups
nuts & seeds 1/4 cup (I used sunflower & pumpkin seeds & walnuts) 
honey 2 teaspoons
melted coconut oil 2 tablespoons
banana 2 large, mashed
vanilla essence 1 teaspoon
free-range eggs 2
natural yoghurt 1/4 cup
baking soda 1 teaspoon (make sure there are no lumps - if there are, sift it)


Method

Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Line a 12-hole muffin pan with paper cases.

Add flour & cinnamon into a large mixing bowl. Stir in salt & oats.

In a separate bowl, honey, melted oil, mashed banana, vanilla, eggs, yoghurt & baking soda together until creamy.

Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture & pour in the wet mixture. Stir gently until just combined – be careful not to over-mix to avoid the muffins becoming tough.

Spoon mixture into paper cases, dividing equally. Option to sprinkle with more cinnamon and/or add a walnut to the top.

Bake for 20 minutes or until they have risen & the tops are golden & spring back when lightly pressed. Remove from the oven, leave to cool before removing them from tin.
