Banana-Nut Muffins (vegan & gluten-free)


Good afternoon on this very rainy Tuesday!


I'm not really enjoying this weather very much, but at least it means that I am much more content being sat at my desk inside!


On a dreary day like today, I always find myself wanting to snack on something comforting, sweet and filling (and that's exactly what I'll do). Meet - the banana-nut muffin!


These super simple, yet pretty darn tasty banana nut muffins are vegan and gluten-free, simple to make, using only 8 ingredients and really help settle those sweet cravings (that I often have on a daily basis). My favourite part about them is definitely the peanut butter (but that's no surprise)- but feel free to use any nut or seed butter that takes your fancy!


What's NUT to like? You're bananas if you don't like these muffins...


Happy baking! :)



PREP TIME: 10 MINS

COOK TIME: 18 MINS

SERVINGS: 6

VEGAN & GLUTEN-FREE


INGREDIENTS:


2 medium ripe bananas

60 ml maple syrup

60 ml peanut butter (free from added sugar & salt)

60 g gluten-free all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

Pinch of salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

Flaked almonds (optional)


INSTRUCTIONS:

1.Pre-heat the oven to 180 C and line a muffin tray with 6 muffin cases.


2.Mash the bananas with a fork until fairly smooth.


3.Once mashed, add them to a mixing bowl with the vanilla extract, maple syrup and peanut butter, mixing together well until combined.


4.Then add in the flour, bicarb of soda, baking powder and salt. Make sure all the ingredients are well combined and there is no dry flour left.


5. Next, transfer the mixture into the prepared muffin cases using a spoon. To decorate, sprinkle a few flaked almonds on top (optional).


6. Bake in the oven for around 18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.


7. Once cooled, tuck in!


RECIPE NOTES:

These muffins are great as a handy snack, a quick & nutritious breakfast or (in my opinion) a nice cuppa & a good book!

Remember: If you are gluten-free, makes sure that you choose a brand of GF flour that has been certified as gluten-free, otherwise there may be traces of gluten in it due to cross contamination.
