When the weather starts to cool off, I want to start baking. But if you have an unhealthy gut, either diagnosed with IBS, Chron's, Colitis or any other gut disease, baking can cause quite a challenge. It almost feels like you can't enjoy foods you used to because they have become the enemy.

Now, back to cold weather and baking muffins. Normally, I eat overnight oatmeal for breakfast most days of the week. Overnight oatmeal is easy to make and it can be eaten hot or cold. Plus, oatmeal is very good for the gut. Oatmeal contains beta-glucan which forms a gel-like substance when it mixes with water. This solution coats the stomach and digestive tract. The coating feeds good bacteria in the gut, which increases their growth rate and can contribute to a healthy gut. (Source: Medical News Today)
While I love oatmeal, it can get boring having oatmeal everyday. Muffins are a great break! It satisfies my carb-loving side while still being healthy. You don't need to use eggs, you can use flax eggs instead, if eggs are a food allergy for you. There are also endless amounts of flour substitutes for gut healthy options, if gluten is an issue.
I personally don't have an issue with gluten but I am cutting back on it. Especially because gluten does not provide essential nutrients. Our bodies have enough to contend with on a daily basis to keep us healthy. Why eat ingredients that aren't beneficial?
