Yes, I said Banana Blueberry Muffins. A couple weeks ago I decided to experiment because I could never get MDA's banana fritter to "flip". I know I am a prefectionist. So in a fit of genius, I decided to put the batter in muffin tins and have been evolving from there.
You can expand / contract your recipe using a 1-1-1 ratio
1 banana to 1/3 cup almond meal /to 1 egg
Into your mixer or food processor
3 ripe bananas
1 cup amond meal
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 tsp arrow root or baking soda (yeah I know)
1 cup of dried blueberries (they get really juicy when cooked so try it)
Grease muffin tin with butter. Get it really good and in all the cracks
pre-heat the oven to 375 deg
Distribute batter evenly over the muffin tins. Cook 25-30 minutes
use a toothpick to check that they are solid & cooked and can come out.
Voila!!! Enjoy with coffee and some yogurt.
I finally broke down and bought a food saver vaccumn sealer. I package mine up in units of 2-3. perfect for on the go.
Even my husband loves it!!!
Thanks for sharing banana blueberry muffins recipe. As these both are my favorite fruits so I will definitely try this.
I have checked and founs all the ingredients in stock so I will try muffins on this weekend and will share my reviews later.
Well, I didn't get my almond flour today, so I went and bought an expensive 1 lb. bag at the health food store, lol Anyway, I can tell these muffins are amazing, but I think I'm gonna make them a bread next time...the texture just didn't work out for me. I did the 2 ratio, with the coconut flour & arrowroot being a little off bc I didn't have a 1/3 Tbsp. I don't think it made that much of a difference, though.
First I checked them and they weren't done all the way. Then I burned them, lol BUT I pulled off the top and bottom (lol) and scooped out the middle part that was perfect and put it in a little container in the fridge...it was about one muffin's worth. LOL
I ate it cold this morning and it was DELICIOUSSS! I really wish I hadn't messed them up. Especially since I used my expensive dried blueberries. :/
Do you think this is better as a bread or should I try it as muffins again? I think next time I'll fold in the blueberries to keep the muffin a more normal color, haha
Btw, this was the first time I've ever not gone EXACTLY by the recipe, so next time I'll stick with the original amounts.

Yeah !!! Cook Success. In my book anything that you can still eat is success. You just have to monkey with your cook times/ove times to make it work for you.
I am going to try bread next time. I try to grease the pan really well, but I still get some left in the bottom. pain to clean the muffin tin.
Hubby went shopping today, so tonight is cook night.
