Do you ever need a quick breakfast or snack that you can grab on your way out the door?

When you have food allergies or intolerances eating out can be a trial and finding snacks is nigh on impossible. So, we allergy sufferers have to get clever (a perk of the allergy lifestyle). We bake, cook, research all in advance but sometimes, like everyone, we forget about breakfast…

In my case, it’s either 15 more minutes in bed, or get up and make breakfast…I usually choose 15 more minutes in bed. I can hear your gasp now, “Skipping out breakfast?! But it’s the most important meal of the day.” Yeah, yeah. I’m pretty sure you all do the same thing.

So to have my sleep and eat too, I decided to get clever, get in control of my hunger and keep allergy safe by baking up a batch of Banana Breakfast Muffins.

This Banana Breakfast Muffins recipe is gluten free, wheat free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, peanut free and suitable for vegans too!

What’s more it takes 15 minutes to prepare and 25 minutes to bake. Whip up a batch on a Sunday and you have breakfast for a week!

In a mixing bowl add in your gluten free self raising flour or flour mix, sugar and ground spices. Mix until evenly incorporated.

Add in the banana and stir until evenly mixed. Now add in the gluten free oats and mix.

Once golden brown, take out and place on a cooling rack until warm to touch.
