It looks as though my adoration for coconut flour has gone on vacation this week. 

Besides the paleo option in this recipe, my past few recipes have NOT contained my most used flour- Case in point? This healthy no bake giant monster cookie for one and these 3 ingredient paleo banana bread cookies. Let’s add today’s one to the list too.

For the longest of times, I’ve been wanting to experiment with a single serve muffin or cake recipe which didn’t need coconut flour. The trouble with this is the potential risk for a cake/muffin to be flat and firm- Something I personally don’t enjoy in my recipes.

Let’s add Greek yogurt to the mix.

Last week, when Amanda suggested the theme for this week’s Sweet and Savory Saturday foodie party, it made me realize just how FEW recipes I had using it! Don’t get me wrong- I LOVE Greek yogurt and often snack on it. In fact, Fage Total is one of my favorite foods and is perhaps the ONLY plain yogurt I truly enjoy on its own.

Greek yogurt and no coconut flour = A challenge.

A challenge I’d willingly accept; unless it failed. In that case, I would hide it in the vault, along with my attempt at making a vegan omelet.

Yeah, don’t ask.

When I first moved into my apartment in New York, one of my roommates told me she enjoyed a particular muffin recipe using Greek yogurt. This recipe happened to be that of Chelsea from Chelsea’s Messy Apron– Her Flourless Greek Yogurt Banana Oat Muffins! He often made it during his food prep and I often scoffed a couple fresh from the oven (In full disclosure, she often added a FULL package of baking chips so that made it extra epic)! They were moist, fluffy and didn’t taste healthy at all! I knew that the combination obviously tasted well, but I didn’t know if it could be transformed into a single serve muffin recipe. 

Sans coconut flour.

I used similar ingredients to what Chelsea did but in smaller proportions and making them suitable for those who follow various dietary lifestyles out there. After 2 attempts (a first!), I managed to get the ingredients just right and was thrilled with the result- As such, here is a delicious healthy 1 minute Greek Yogurt Banana Oat muffin!

This healthy Greek Yogurt banana oat muffin is light and fluffy on the inside (check out those pictures!) while being tender on the outside and is ready in just one minute (if you use the microwave option). For such a delicious single serve muffin, you’d be thrilled to know there is no butter, oil, flour or sugar in the entire recipe! Thanks to the nature of the ingredients, it’s naturally gluten free and sugar free, and has a tested vegan and dairy free option! For those who have a small blender, you can easily whip this all up in there- Simple add, blend, pour and bake/microwave! 

HACK! I don’t want my vegan and dairy free friends to miss out on this deliciousness so I trialled one of them using a vegan Greek yogurt (I used So Delicious Vanilla Greek Cultured Yogurt). It definitely worked well, however, it does come out a little more flat and less moist- Take note of the changes I made using that option!

Make this delicious healthy flourless Greek Yogurt Banana Oat Muffin made in 1 minute and if you don’t mind, I’ll need to go do some apologizing.

….to the coconut flour.

Servings: 1

Ingredients  

Instructions 

Microwave option

  • Add all ingredients into a small blender/food processor until fully processed. If mixture is too thick, add a dash more dairy free milk until a thick batter is formed.
  • Transfer to a greased microwave safe bowl or mug and top with optional chocolate chips. Microwave for 1 minute, or until fully cooked and fluffy on the inside.

Oven option

  • Follow as above but bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until tender on the outside and a toothpick comes out clean.

Notes

* If you want to whisk it all by hand, grind the oats into a flour before hand and mix well before microwaving/baking.
If you use dairy free yogurt, add an extra tablespoon and decrease dairy free milk by 1 tablespoon. It would result in a much better texture.

Are you a fan of Greek yogurt (dairy or non-dairy)? 

Total, 2% or fat free?

Have you ever baked with yogurt or cream? My friend makes cupcakes with ICE CREAM in it.

  1. i used to eat greek yogurt every day and then one day stopped buying it and gave it up! it happened after I was sick over the summer but then Amanda’s reminder yesterday with her banana oat greek yogurt muffins which she is turning into a mug cake or something tomorrow made me think I need to take up greek yogurt again and now you confirmed I should. I gotta get some in the house!

    1. You should try it out- I’m so glad I shared this recipe, it’s like my sweet potato brownies- In my archives but finally seeing light for all to enjoy!

  2. I’ve never tried dairy free greek yogurt but I’ll have to look out for that! I’d go full fat of course 🙂

  3. I would have never thought to bake with greek yoghurt, but it makes sense! And can you please ask your friend to send me some of those ice cream cupcakes? Kthx

  4. So Delicious has a pretty goo Greek yogurt. It’s not as tart as the regular kind so I like it more. I’ve never used cream or ice cream in baking but that cannot be wrong. Have a great weekend Arman

  5. Another hit, Arman! I’m house/cat sitting for my parents and had to use “regular” yogurt and chocolate chips, but it was still delicious. 🙂

  6. Since my digestion and Greek yogurt got in a fight, I’ve had to take a vacation from Greek yogurt for a while! I don’t know when I’ll be incorporating it back into my diet or if I will at all, but I’ll probably start off by putting it in something else, like this muffin!

  7. Funny story – and surprisingly, I don’t consider it a fail.
    I had planned on making this for breakfast this morning however forgot to plan to have some ground flax ready. I didn’t want to wake my boyfriend by flipping on the Vitamix this early so I figured I’d see what happened if I omitted the egg part. I had already started making it so I was like, “what the heck, why not. Worst thing that can happen is I throw it out.” Plus, there’s a whole tsp of baking powder. So I measured out everything using 40 g oat flour and then realized I accidentally used cayenne pepper instead of cinnamon! This is not my morning. Needless to say, I kept going. I ended up microwaving for like 3.5 mins or something but this thing was darn good. I’m usually not able to get much success using your recipes because I usually use rice/pea protein instead of whey and flax instead of eggs – but I’d definitely have to use this one again, possibly the right way? Lol!
    I took a picture of it, I wish I could post that in the comments…

    1. Oh my gee hahahhaha that is totally something I would do! Glad it worked out in the end?!

    1. Oh awesome- Hope you enjoy them! As for the carbs, if you add the ingredients to a calorie calculator, it will provide it for you! Enjoy!

  8. I love overnight oats with Greek yogurt and love this idea as a nice change! But what is the measurement for the sweetener? It says 1-2…?

    1. Hello Stephanie! Apologies- It should be 1 -2 tablespoons- Adjust accordingly 🙂
