I decided to make these Banana Muffins because I wanted to try baking.  I would like to preface that I am very unlucky when it comes to baking.  Every time I tried to make cookies in high school they turned out inedible.  One time I baked a cake and it was still liquid after 40 min in the oven.  I don’t know why I stink at baking, but I have developed a fear of it and try to avoid it as much as possible however my chocolate chip cookies have slowly gotten better over time.

I figured my first go around wouldn’t be too great, and I was right.  You know that meme of the package of the oranges?? The label says “NOT THE BEST BUT STILL GOOD”.  That’s what my first batch was like.  A little too dense and a little too dry.  But I knew what I needed to make it better.  I made a few adjustments and tried again and they turned out great!  (Don’t worry, I only made 6 muffins both times, I tripled the recipe below.)  They’re still a little dense, but they taste amazing and are perfectly moist.  (God, I hate that word.) So here’s the final recipe:

What you need:

3 eggs

3 bananas

1/2 cup almond milk

2 teaspoons melted coconut oil

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup water

1 cup almond flour

1/2 cup coconut flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon salt

hand mixer

The process:

Preheat oven to 325.  In a large bowl, mash your bananas with a fork.  (Or however you prefer to mash your bananas.)  Add eggs and beat.  Pour in almond milk,  coconut oil, vanilla extract and beat.  In a separate bowl, mix coconut flour, almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt with a fork.  Pour the dry mixture into the large bowl slowly while mixing.  Grease muffin pan with coconut oil (we buy it in a spray can from Target.)  Use ice cream scoop to scoop the mixture into the pan.  Makes about 18 muffins.  Bake for 35 min.

As I was eating them, I thought about how I had just made these baked goods with completely fresh and whole ingredients.  I actually bought the bananas at the same time I bought these flowers.  Food as fresh as flowers 🙂

Eat your veggies ladies and gents!! TGIF.
