Best Banana Muffins (Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, etc)
Oh my. These are so good. I’ve eaten way too many. Best of all? These are free from any grains at all….gluten-free or otherwise. And? They involved very little work, contain only one flour, and taste just like “whole-wheat” or regular muffins. Tested by my room mates even, and they approve!
This recipe came to be because I’ve been testing coconut flour and trying agave. Mmmm….good!
Best Banana Muffins
- 3 bananas (mine were just ripe-no brown spots—but I’m sure these would be even more delicious with riper bananas)
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 c. agave
- 4 T. oil (I used sunflower seed oil)
- 15 drops stevia (I used vanilla stevia)***
- 3/4 c. coconut flour
- 1 t. baking soda
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1.5 t. cinnamon
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin tins with paper liners or grease well. Mash bananas with a fork, or with my prefered method, a potato masher. Crack eggs and stir them in. Add agave. Stir. Add oil. Mix. Add stevia. Mix. Add coconut flour, salt, and cinnamon. Stir. Add in baking soda. Stir again. Using an ice-cream scoop (or spoon—the scoop just tends to be able give out the right amount of batter per muffin tin), pour batter into individual cups. Smooth tops of muffins with slightly wet fingers, if desired. Slide muffin tins in the oven. Let cook for 20 minutes or until your toothpick comes out clean. Mine were perfect right at 20, but every oven is different.
Yields: 12 beautiful, soft, super moist, just sweet enough, perfectly satisfying tasty muffins great warm or cold
Enjoy! Let me know how you like them!
***Update: I made them again. They were so good. I used speckled bananas this time…they yielded an even more moist sweet muffin. I think in this case you could use less or no stevia and be fine…especially if you are weary of the stevia after taste you sometimes get. I’ve never eaten a more moist muffin!!! It’s almost like a cupcake or something of a dessert it feels like because it is so moist, you would think there would be cups and cups of oil in it–but it’s so healthy and yummy! I want to try these next time with half oil and have applesauce. If you try that or any other variations, let me know.
