Blueberry Banana Muffins

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 cup mashed ripe banana (about 2 medium bananas)

  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons  unsweetened rice milk

  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

  • 2 cups white spelt flour (or substitute a gluten free flour blend)

  • 4 to 6 tablespoons coconut sugar or natural cane sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 1/4 cups  frozen or fresh blueberries

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a muffin tin.

  2. In a medium bowl, mash bananas.

  3. Place mashed banana into medium bowl along with the milk, vinegar, maple syrup, and vanilla. No need to stir it yet.

  4. Melt the coconut oil in a small pot over low heat. Set aside.

  5. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda).

  6. Stir coconut oil into the wet mixture. Pour wet ingredients onto the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not overmix as spelt is a fragile little flour.

  7. Gently fold in the blueberries, being sure not to overmix as this can result in dense muffins.

  8. Spoon a heaping 1/4 cup of batter into each muffin tin, filling each tin about 3/4 full (they will be almost full, but this is normal). 

  9. Bake at 350°F for 23 to 27 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

  10. Cool in pan for 5 to 8 minutes and then transfer muffins to a cooling rack.
