I am always looking for new, delicious, healthy, and simple recipes to incorporate into my life. I stumbled across this one recently when I was looking for low calorie, easy muffins to use as a snack during the day.
These simple, healthy, and delicious muffins use very few ingredients, no added sugar, eggs, dairy, or grain flour. They do have a “gummy” texture, which I happen to really like, but I am aware that not everybody feels the same. 🙂 So, I provided another recipe that I know has received great reviews!
3/4 c mashed banana (the browner the sweeter)
Just shy of 1/2 c oat flour
1/2 c shredded zuchini
1/8 c oats
1 Tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
- Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees ( I only have a toaster oven, but it works perfectly!)
- Put all of your ingredients into a bowl and mix well, making sure banana is entirely mashed.
- Grease a 6 count muffin tin with coconut oil and distribute muffin mix evenly.
- Bake for 18-20+ minutes, and allow these babies to cool. They will look a little rough, and they do not rise! This was the time I realized…..I never bake at my house and don’t actually have a cooling rack! lol
HERE is the recipe for you that want something a little bit more like a traditional muffin. 😀
AUTUMN’S BANANA APPLE MUFFINS:
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup mashed banana (about 2 medium bananas)
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 ½ cups almond flour
¾ tsp baking soda
1 dash sea salt
½ cup chopped apple (about ¾ medium apple)
Preheat oven to 350. Combine eggs, banana, and coconut oil in medium bowl, mix well and set aside. Combine almond flour, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl, mix well. Add almond meal mixture to egg mixture, mix until blended. Add apple, and mix until blended. Divide batter evenly between nine muffin cups. Bake 16-18 minutes, or until golden brown and toothpick inserted into the center comes out cleanly.
Transfer to rack and cool.
