Words cannot describe this muffin recipe I am about to share with you. Now you know I am big on the texture of my food, and this muffin is spot on perfect. I love that it also has only 1 cup of flour and produces the same 12 muffins as a standard two cup o flour recipes.
It’s really a banana muffin recipe and while the fineky daughter says they are strong on the banana I was too busy loving the soft, moist, spongy, perfection of the muffin and my crunchy toppings! I mean seriously, I could break out in song and dance right now. I finally understand people’s love of a good baked treat!!!
The secret ingredient for all this texture greatness? APPLE SAUCE!!! Chock full of fiber and water, it is a healthy replacement for butter or oil and makes for moister and fresher baking results. SO let’s get to it.
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg beaten with 1 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 cup apple sauce
1 cup (multigrain) flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
*hemp and chia seeds for sprinkling tops
Lightly oil muffin pan and insert liners and preheat oven.
Mash bananas in a bowl with a fork, add sugar, egg and apple sauce, and stir until mixed.
Combine flour, powder, soda and salt and add to wet ingredients.
Mix until well blended, but remember not to over mix.
Pour into muffin cups and bake at 350 F for 15-20 minutes. It’s important to check on them at 15 minutes because the batter is a light one thanks to the sauce.
Sprinkling with generous shakes of chia and hemp seeds is optional.SOOO YUMMMYY, I almost ate the wrapper. Come on someone, edible muffin liners!
