Like I mentioned earlier..I bought a bunch of bananas very cheap. Ok...what can I do besides freeze them..bake, bake, and freeze more! So I came up with this little recipe some time ago. Seems a little time consuming...just a tad, but worth it if you can spare a few extra minutes. This recipes goes in steps..
Banana Foster Muffins
Makes 10 muffins
2 over ripe medium bananas, peeled and smashed..should equal about 1 cup
1/4 c. turbinado sugar (can use brown sugar)
1/4 c. vanilla coconut milk (can use regular)
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. extra fine sea salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. cloves
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ginger
1/2 c. vanilla coconut milk. (can use regular)
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar or regular vinegar
Preheat oven to 350. Spray oil in a regular size muffin tin. (I like canola spray).
Step 1: Banana Mixture
-Heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Add bananas, sugar, and coconut milk. Bring to a slow simmer. Stir occasionally for 5 minutes. It will be fragrant. Turn off heat and add vanilla.
Step 2: Dry Ingredients
-In a large bowl, whisk all dry ingredients.
Step 3: Wet Ingredients
-In a small bowl or cup, mix wet ingredients.
-Add the banana mixture and the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Gently stir until incorporated. (don't get crazy and stir too hard or fast. You will end up with tough muffins!)
-Evenly distribute in the muffin tin. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Cool slightly and enjoy!
