Finding myself with an entire bunch of over ripe bananas I decided to find a new recipe to use some of the up. This recipe from Sugarfreemom caught my eye. A recipe for refined sugar free muffins perfect!
Here is the link to the recipe Banana Bread Muffins
Firstly I put all the wet ingredients in a bowl
3 ripe bananas
2 large free range eggs
1/2 cup milk ( I used almond milk )
1/2 cup apple sauce homemade
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp honey
I pre heated the oven to 170c fan
I used a hand blender to mix and mash all the wet ingredients together.
In a separate bowl I put
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
2 cups of gluten free SR flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
I stirred the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and added 1/4 cup water
the mixture starts to react to the bicarb and baking powder and expands
to this mixture I quickly added 1/2 cup of gluten free dark chocolate chips
I spooned the mixture into 11 large muffin cases which I had greased well
These went into the oven for 25 mins
They came out golden brown and once cooled came easily out of the muffin trays
I was very impressed with the texture of these muffins. Not heavy, but airy with a bouncy springy texture
these I would say are low sweetness which I prefer and the dark chocolate drops melted inside do help with the sweetness. You could add more honey or stevia as in the original recipe.
Well worth giving these a try, I was very impressed
I think they would be delicious with a hot chocolate for a treat or make a good breakfast alternative.
