funny story about this sunday’s muffins- alara and i were cooking a bunch of food for the lockdown weekend and i decided we would “try out” this recipe i had come up with.
but truth be told, i really was not concentrating on the muffins and so the whole thing turned into a bit of a joke!!!
i added extra ingredients, put in a bit too much baking powder, and completely forgot to preheat the oven 😅
oh well! the results were still delicious, and we tried out the recipe again today for a loaf of banana bread and so now the recipe is tried and true and ready to be shared…
covid and lockdown have been really stressful for us all and a bit of baking and laughing this week did us all a lot of good…
my wish for you is to have the (maybe unexpected) chance to enjoy the baking process with one of your children too; and be sure to get some laughs in too!!!
these muffins are perfect for breakfast- serve with a large dollop of nut butter, a sprinkling of chia seeds and a cup of coffee for a perfect winter treat.
oh! and i forgot, this is a blender recipe, so you only need one mixing bowl- or a blender- and you are set…
- 2 ripe bananas
- ¼ cup coconut sugar
- 3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- ½ cup nut mylk
- ¼ cup nut butter
- 1 cup gluten free oats
- 1 cup almond meal
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- preheat oven to 180 degrees
- line a muffin tin with muffin liners
- use a bread pan lined with parchment paper if you would rather make banana bread
- blend bananas, sugar, cinnamon, salt, vanilla extract, apple cider vinegar, nut mylk, nut butter in blender or with hand mixer
- add in oats, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda and chia seeds
- for muffins bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean
- for full loaf of banana bread bake for 25-30 minute
the whole load turned out amazing too… perfect for breakfast in the snowy winter weather we have these days here in istanbul ❄️
