Ripe Bananas

We had three very very ripe bananas that needed to be eaten ASAP! I used one in a smoothie & the other two went into Eden Organic Food's Banana Nut Muffins - minus the nuts. These were not sweet at all & tasted very much like a simple & plain bread to me. Carob/chocolate chips may have a been a nice addition for some extra texture & flavor.
Banana Bread Muffins
2 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

2 tblspns coconut oil
2 tblspns apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup malt barley syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 medium ripe bananas, smashed

1 cup raisins
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Oil/grease muffin pan.
  • Smash ripe bananas & set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, soda, powder, cinnamon & salt.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, syrup, vanilla & bananas.
  • Add the dry ingredient into the wet & stir to combine.
  • Fold in raisins . Do not overwork the batter.
  • Divide evenly among muffin tins, filling about 3/4 full.
