Fluffy vegan and gluten free breakfast muffins. They are also free from refined sugar, getting all the sweetness they need from dates!


  • 250 g banana weight without skins
  • 150 g dates soaked in hot water for 15 mins
  • 100 g walnuts save 12 whole for tops and finely chop the rest
  • 100 g porridge/fine oats
  • 100 g gram flour
  • 2 t cinnamon powder
  • 1 t bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 T apple cider vinegar
  • 150 ml water from soaking the dates


  • Heat your oven to 170c/325f/GM3.
  • Cut 6 pieces of baking paper, line the muffin pan with the paper.
  • Put the banana and dates (removed from the water) in a jug. Blend with a hand blender until smooth (you can also use a food processor or smoothie blender for this).
  • Put the finely chopped walnuts, oats, gram flour, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda into a mixing bowl. Mix well, add the banana/date mixture to the bowl, plus vinegar and water. Mix well, pour into the muffin pan quickly (the bicarbonate will start reacting to the vinegar immediately).
  • Put the remaining walnuts on top of the muffins. Bake the muffins for around 30 minutes until they are completely cooked through.
  • Serve either on their own or with a dollop of smooth peanut butter.
