Gluten Free Banana Muffins

I found this recipe the other day browsing the internet for healthy yummies to make for the family.  I tweaked it just a bit to suit my tastes and it was amazing, so here I am sharing it with you!



Here's what you'll need:

  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 maple syrup (or honey)
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking soda

Optional things to include:
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 chocolate chips
  • 1/2 crushed walnuts or pecans

Pick one!


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line muffin tin with muffin papers, OR grease muffin tins with coconut oil.
  2. Mix bananas, applesauce, and syrup in a bowl. 
  3. When mixture is smooth, add dry ingredients.
  4. Fold in any of the optional ingredients you choose, and then fill muffin tins 3/4's the way full.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes.

The nutrition facts were based off this recipe making 20 muffins.  I love how it rated it a C+ in nutrition, crazy nutritionists!  Anyway,  enjoy!
