Miranda Kerr is one of Victoria’s Secret’s most recognizable Angels. What, with her beautiful cherub-face and killer body, it’s hard not to notice her. So, how does the supermodel mother of one, look so damn good? Four words. Gluten-free apple banana muffins. OK, so she also does 10-minute planks and seated spinal twists, but, trust us, Miranda (and her little son) absolutely love this 140-calorie muffin. Here’s how you can make your very own:

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups gluten-free oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup goat milk yogurt
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean powder (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 large green organic apples, chopped
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed

DIRECTIONS

  1. It’s time to get nutty: Grind up the oats and walnuts into a flour-like consistency.
  2. Grab a large mixing bowl and add all of the dry ingredients (that would be the oats and walnuts concoction, plus the baking powder, baking soda, and chia seeds.)
  3. Now it’s time to mix in the beaten eggs, applesauce and yogurt.
  4. Next, heat the coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla and honey in a small pot over low heat until it turns into a delicious syrup. Mmm. We’re already drooling over here.
  5. Pour it into a large mixing bowl.
  6. It’s time to bring out the big guns: Fold the chopped apples and mashed bananas into the mixture.
  7. It’s oven time. Heat the oven to 350°F. While that’s warming up, pour the mixture into a lightly-greased muffin tin.
  8. Bake for 40 minutes.
  9. It’ll be difficult, but try to resist eating them for 15 minutes. Hey, they need to cool.
  10. And voila, sprinkle some cinnamon on top and they’re ready to be eaten.
