We have been trapped or maybe I should say gratefully warm in our home most of the week, due to the snowstorm. So we baked…a lot! And stayed in our pajamas a lot! We watched movies in the tent, listened to music, colored, painted, worked out, played with snow inside (that was fun), cleaned, made messes. It was a nice change of pace, but I was so ready to get out of the house and back into a routine! What do you do when you are stuck inside because of the snow? Or for those who live in warmer climates, what do you think you would do?
One of the things we baked this week were these yummy banana nuts muffins for our neighbors. I have a good friend that created a FB page called 52 Weeks of Giving. This week was to bake something for a neighbor…perfect timing I think! On the 52 Weeks of Giving FB page activities will be posted each week, that you can do with your child(ren) to give back to others and teach gratitude. I love this idea! If you do too, and want to join us, check out her FB page and like it for weekly ideas.
- 2 medium ripe bananas (the riper they are the sweeter they will be)
- ½ cup of coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- dash of salt
- 4 eggs
- 2 Tbs of melted coconut oil
- 1 Tbs of melted raw honey or pure maple syrup
- 1 Tbs pure vanilla extract (optional)
- ½ cup of chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Blend the bananas in a food processor or blender and blend until creamy.
- Add all the remaining ingredients except for the walnuts and blend well.
- Stir in the walnuts.
- Put the muffin cups in if desired and scoop mixture into the cups. I was able to make 24 mini muffins with this recipe.
- Bake 17-20 minutes or until the center is set and a toothpick comes out clean.
If you like muffins like I do, try these delicious pumpkin muffins. Quadruple the recipe if you want to make around 24 mini muffins.
