Why these banana bread muffins will start your day right
For those of you who don’t tolerate grains particularly well these Gluten Free Vegan Banana Bread Muffins are a great way to start your day. They use a combination of almond flour and buckwheat (a pseudo grain). If you prefer them to be totally grain free you can experiment with just almond flour, but I haven’t tried this yet. The mix of flours helps with the consistency.
I added warming spices of cinnamon and some chopped walnuts (or you can use pecans) for the ultimate fluffy yet crunchy surprise in every bite. You could even add some sugar free dark chocolate chips or chunks of chopped dark chocolate too if you like.
What is the healthiest sweetener to use?
These muffins are refined sugar free. I chose to use maple syrup as maple lends itself taste wise to banana bread but you could try coconut sugar (1/4 cup of maple for roughly one cup of coconut sugar) or honey if you’re not vegan (same ratio as maple.)
They’re not overly sweet, so feel free to adjust to your tastebuds. You can also omit the maple altogether if you prefer. The banana adds a gentle sweetness but they will feel a touch more hearty than a treat, if you know what I mean!
EQUIPMENT NEEDED TO MAKE THESE VEGAN BANANA BREAD MUFFINS
These Gluten Free Vegan Banana Bread Muffins are quick and easy to make. All you need is a mixing bowl, measuring cups, spoon, fork, electric whisk, muffin tin and cases, the oven, a toothpick or skewer for testing and a wire rack for cooling.
I hope you enjoy them guys, Jo x
