Oat Flour Muffins with Berries and Pistachios


I reach for these Oat Flour Muffins with Berries and Pistachios because I love to pack my muffins with berries and nuts so they become nutritional wonders; a balanced source of good carbs as well as proteins. I tend to keep the sugars low, so if you like your life sweet, just add more. As always, this is yet another gluten-free, egg-free muffin recipe.

See, there is [good] life after gluten.

  1. The instructions say to mix the flax meal with water but there isn’t a water amount given

    • Hi Raelyn Noel,

      2 tbsp flaxseed meal + 3 tbsp of water (this will replace the eggs). Thank you for pointing this out 🙂

    • Hi Jennell Houts,

      2 tbsp flaxseed meal + 3 tbsp of water (this will replace the eggs). Please let us know how you like them 🙂

  2. What is flaxseed meal? I usually put ground flaxseed in my smoothies every morning…
    thank you!

  3. Sorry – so do the berries and pistachios get added in steps 3 and/or 4 or step 5?

    • Hi Laura, you can add in the berries and pistachios in between step 4 and 5. Be sure to mix them in well before transferring to the baking dish. ~HB Support

  4. Does it make any difference the type of pistachios you use? Are they supposed to be raw, roasted, salted?
