These easy and healthy low fodmap banana nut muffins are definitely my go to muffin recipe! These banana muffins come out perfect: they’re incredibly moist, soft and filled with banana, oat and walnut flavours. Yum for breakfast, yum on the go! When and anywhere you like!!
As the days start to get colder, I tend to make these banana nut muffins more often. I suppose I haven’t shared this basic low fodmap muffins recipe before because I kept saying to myself that you would prefer more elaborated recipes like these vegan Low Fodmap Pumpkin Muffins.
Actually, what we need is a quick, safe and easy treat to satisfy our delicate tummies, so this recipe is just perfect! And because we can’t easily go out and buy a regular muffin, these portable Low Fodmap Banana Nut Muffins are a great way to fulfil our sugar cravings anywhere.
And last but not least, these muffins are quite healthy too! Ideal for breakfast, they are packed full of goodness: banana, oats, walnuts and extra virgin olive oil – the secret for their lightness and fluffiness. Once you start baking with olive oil, you’ll never look back!
