I had a bunch of sad looking bananas from the weekend just sitting around in the fruit bowl. I’ve made more smoothies and nice cream than I can count. So I decided to experiment a little! These banana muffins are refined sugar, refined flour and oil free. Each muffin is also only 100 calories (this may vary slightly depending on what plant milk you choose to use) which is pretty awesome!
4 ripe bananas
1 1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1/4 cup vegan milk of your choice
6 tablespoons aquafaba
1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon rum extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven 180c and line a 12 muffin tray with patty pans.
In a large bowl mash the bananas until there are almost no lumps left. Add the vegan milk, aquafaba, flaxmeal and the two extracts. Mix well.
Sift the flour, stevia, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in the bowl with the wet mix. Since you are using wholemeal flour, the husks will remain in the sieve. Just add this back into the mixture. Mix until just combined making sure not to over mix the batter.
Fill each patty pan approximately 3/4 of the full.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until the tops are golden brown and a skewer comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
You can add nuts/chocolate chips/blueberries/spices, whatever you like! Of course this will add to the calories but if that’s not something you are concerned about, go nuts!
