Healthy Berry Banana Muffins

February 8, 2016

I’ve always had a sweet tooth, and since I stopped eating sugar and processed foods I am constantly looking for sweet alternatives!

Today was my last day of my Christmas break and it was pretty stormy outside so of course I was craving something warm, sweet and delicious.

 

I got onto google in search for a healthy muffin recipe that suited my eating style: wheat free and sugar free without cutting out butter/dairy products and eggs. Most of the recipes I found were egg and butter free (which are healthy fats) and had so called “healthy” fructose filled sweeteners like coconut sugar, raw sugar, brown sugar and agave syrup.

 

So I decided to make my own. Here’s what I came up with, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised!!

 

 

Healthy Berry Banana Muffins (gluten free and sugar free)

Serves: 6 large muffins

Ingredients
  • 3 small or 2 big bananas

  • 1.5 cups of almond flour (not almond meal)

  • 3 eggs

  • 50g melted butter

  • 2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract

  • 1 heaped teaspoon cinnamon

  • Pinch Himalayan salt

  • 1 tablespoon stevia (or any sweetener you want, you can also leave it out if you prefer)

  • 0.5 cups of berries – any kind you like (or you can use walnuts or dark choc chunks for a treat).

Method
  1. Mash bananas with a fork in a bowl until super mushy

  2. Mix in almond flour

  3. Crack eggs into a separate bowl and mix together with a fork; add to the mixture.

  4. Add melted butter, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and stevia and mix together.

  5. Add berries and stir together.

  6. Place mixture evenly in a greased muffin tin. Note that the muffins will rise a tiny bit.

  7. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes or until golden on top.

  8. Serve warm with some natural yoghurt and enjoy!

Tip: if you use muffin cases they will be easier to get out of the muffin tin

 

Yummy alternatives: add chopped walnuts or dark chocolate chunks.
