I’ve been just waiting and waiting to have some extra bananas go brown on me! This has to the one and only fruit that I actually get excited when it goes “bad”. I even bought a bunch of extra bananas lately just so I could have some for baking!
I give you: The Everything (banana) Muffin
Basically I couldn’t decide what to put in, so I added it all:
Banana, coconut, blueberries, and chocolate chips!
preheat oven to 375
The Dry Ingredients:
- 1 1/2 cups White Whole Wheat Flour
- 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
- 1/4 cup quick oats
- 1/4 cup Oat Bran
- 2 tsp Baking powder
- 1.5 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 (heaping) tsp nutmeg
- 2 Tbsp sucanant (or any other sugar)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
The Wet Ingredients:
- 3.5 very ripe bananas mashed
- 1 T canola oil
- 1-2 tsp coconut oil (I used a heaping tsp…it was still more in solid form)
- 1 egg white
- 2 T Agave (I actually used TJ’s Agave/Maple Syrup blend)
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 small pint blueberries
- 1/4 cup choc. chips
Combine wet and dry ingredients and mix until combined, but don’t over mix!
Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray, I use canola oil spray. Divide batter evenly among the 12 cups. My muffin tin was pretty full, but I like a “fuller” muffin.
optional: sprinkle tops with raw sugar before baking.
375 for 18 min
These came out AWESOME!!! Sometimes when I make a muffin like this I always wish I added just a little more sweetener, so this time I did and it was the perfect amount!
Sweeteners should be adjusted for bananas…if you only have 2 banana’s you might want to add a little more sugar to make up for it.
The 1+ tsp of coconut oil was very subtle, if you want more of a coconut flavor use more/all coconut oil in place of the canola. This is another great way to add flavor without adding more sugar.
Nicely browned tops and very moist!
(mmm gotta love the melty chocolate chips)
Make These :)
