How to make roasted strawberry banana oat muffins without gluten, dairy or refined sugar

These wholesome muffins come in at 152 calories each and taste like they’re good for you. Most of the sweetness comes from the ripe bananas (the riper the banana, the sweeter the muffin).

I like blitzing bananas in a blender whenever I make a banana bread or muffin as it gives a less lumpy and creamier texture. But you can skip the blender and just mash the banana with a fork.

The same goes with the roasted strawberries. I love the taste – roasting strawberries intensifies the flavour and holds a bit better in baked goods. But you can just skip the roasting and add fresh chopped pieces into the muffins.
