Mindful Gluten-Free Muffins

I’m on a mission to eat a little more mindfully. I tend to get myself distracted by things to be done or things I want to do, and eating is low on that list. I made these muffins yesterday which is some thing I used to do all the time. Some how my life priorities became shifted but I am realizing that I need to move the lends back to eating better. For years I was a big time foodie and creating amazing meals was my jam, but then that season ended and I busied myself with other interest. Thing is though, I miss eating good food! I tend to grab something fast at the deli and move on to the next thing with little thought about nutrition.

As I am mentally and physically preparing for my fourth hip surgery in just two months I know I need to bump up the nutrients and get my body in prime condition for recovery. These little muffins are my first step at walking back towards a more mindful eating pattern.

They’re super easy, super healthy, and delicious.

As you may recall, I’m not the best at exact measurements as I tend to eyeball everything.

Here’s how I did it.

Healthy Baked Oatmeal

A cold and blustery morning is perfect for baked oatmeal. Snow is swirling all around this Sunday morning like I am inside a snow globe. It is so pretty and it makes me want to bake something. I am not a huge breakfast girl but the idea of something warm and cinnamony sounded so good. An added bonus– this has no flour, no eggs and is simple to put together.

This is SO easy and so delicious.


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 scoop vital proteins collagen (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups oat milk (or whatever milk you like)
  • dash of cinnamon
  • handful of blueberries


In a shallow baking dish (I used 8 x 11), mash the bananas. Add the oats, collagen and chia seeds. Pour the milk over. Add the cinnamon and blueberries. Bake in a 350 degree over for 30 minutes. Drizzle with honey if desired!

For an easy afternoon treat or dessert you could easily swap out blueberries for chocolate chips!
