Wholesomely good, gluten free and without refined sugar, Gingerbread Banana Motivation Muffins are perfect for busy days when you need a jump start.¾½¼³²¹



  • 2 large bananas¹ (the older the better)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ¾ cup pitted whole dates² (about 810 dates depending on the size)
  • 2 cups gluten free oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Grease and flour a muffin or cupcake tin, set aside.
  2. In a blender or food processor add the bananas, almond milk, eggs and dates.  Give it a quick blend (about 10 to 15 seconds) to break of the dates and bananas.
  3. Add the oats, baking soda and spices to the blender.  Blend for a full 1 to 2 minutes until ingredients are incorporated.  The batter should be pourable but thick, you’ll need a spatula to get the remaining batter at the bottom.
  4. Fill muffin tin 3/4 of the way and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.



¹Think ‘Banana Bread’ for the oldness of the bananas.  Dark and spotted or the peels can even be completely turned a different color.  If the bananas are still ripe for the eating, wait a few more days (or add another ¼ cup almond milk)

²If you’re blender or food processor is not so awesome, try soaking the dates in super hot water for about 5 minutes.  Strain before adding to the blender.
