A delicious, single-serve healthy flourless banana oat muffin containing Greek yogurt and ready in just one minute! This healthy flourless 1 minute Greek yogurt banana oat muffin has no butter, flour, oil or sugar but you’d never tell- It’s also gluten free and refined sugar free and comes with a tested dairy free and vegan option!
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.
Healthy 1 Minute Flourless Greek Yogurt Banana Oat Muffin
- 1/2 cup rolled oats*
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1-2 granulated sweetener of choice I used norbu sweetener
- pinch cinnamon
- 2 tablespoon mashed banana approximately 1/4 medium
- 2 tablespoon Greek yogurt see notes for using dairy free yogurt
- 1 large egg OR egg white to keep it vegan, sub for 1 flax egg
- 2 tablespoon + dairy free milk of choice
- Dairy free chocolate chips optional
- 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.
- Follow as above but bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until tender on the outside and a toothpick comes out clean.
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.

Just stumbled on this and had to try it! I substituted whole dairy milk and Oikos fat free Greek vanilla yogurt. Added vanilla and a pinch of salt. Also added some peanut butter. I ran out of chocolate chips so I used cacao nibs. It was fantastic!
Oh yay- I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Taylor!
You say to use “1-2 sweetener”…1-2 what? Teaspoons? Tablespoons? Pinches?
Apologies for the oversight, Tom- It’s tablespoons
Can I use honey as a sweetener…?
Hi there- You can definitely add that instead of the granulated sweetener, although you’d need to adjust it to taste or even leave it out and top the muffin with it 🙂
p.s. Vegan omlettes are very popular in India! Search for Besan Chilla/Cheela on pintrest….they will not disappoint! 🙂
oooooo That looks delicious, Sharon!
These are fabulous! Kids approved them! Thank you for sharing!
Hi Nikky! Thanks so much for the feedback, STOKED they are kid approved too 🙂
1-2 Tablespoons of sweetener? In my opinion, that would make it way too sweet.
No worries, it depends on everyone’s tastebuds 🙂
If I wanted to make multiple muffins and bake them how would I increase this recipe? Say a 12 muffin count!
Hmm I haven’t tried it, I’d just add it up by the number of muffins but feel free to experiment and see!
In the ingredients list you don’t specify how much sweetener 1-2?
So I assumed TB. It turned out delicious but took 90 seconds. I used a 6 oz ramekin & it really rose high above the rim. What size dish do you use? I loved the flavor w/o chocolate chips. I cut in half and spread peanut butter on it. Yum!
Oh yes!! Amending it now 🙂
Delicious!! Doesn’t need the choc chips. My husband wants me to makes them again and serve them with whipped cream, lol! (Defeats the object of being healthy but oh well!:) )
Hahaha extra whipped cream for him!
