How to Make Diabetic Friendly, No Sugar Banana-Blueberry Muffins in Your Air Fryer
These muffins are surprisingly good considering that they have no refined sugar added (yes, the bananas do have sugar in them, as do the blueberries), no artificial sweeteners, and are really pretty "healthy." The muffins get their sweetness and considerable moisture from mashed bananas. Greek yogurt provides a good bit of protein, and oat flour gives the muffins texture as well as keeping them "whole grain." If you don't have oat flour, not to worry. You can (and should) make your own. Just grind up some oats--old fashioned or quick oats are both fine--in a food processor. It takes just a few minutes, and you can use the oat flour in multiple baked goods. The oat flour will be a little course after whirring in the food processor--not quite as fine as whole-wheat flour. I use frozen blueberries in the muffins, which works fine and is generally less expensive than using fresh berries (plus, I like to save the fresh ones to eat "as is"). The muffins are great for breakfast, or try them as a snack with Greek yogurt. Enjoy!
Air Fryer No Sugar Banana Blueberry Oat Muffins -- Makes 6 Muffins
1 cup of banana puree (2 smallish bananas)
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 cup of Greek yogurt
1/4 cup of canola oil
1 cup of oat flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 cup of frozen blueberries (don't thaw but do rinse off the ice crystals)
Spritz 6 ramekins with non-stick cooking spray or line the ramekins with cupcake liners. In a medium bowl or measure whisk together well the banana puree, egg, vanilla, Greek yogurt, and canola oil. With a spoon stir in the oat flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon until just combined. Fold in the blueberries. Divide the mixture among the ramekins. Air fry the muffins at 320 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until a deep golden brown and a pick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out with no wet batter attached.
