HI! Holy, yet again I have not posted in almost a week. Someone come kick my ass. I’ve made a lot of repeat recipes lately actually, like the other day I did the yummy Sweet Potato Curry and have been having that almost repeatedly because of leftovers. It almost tastes better left over because I’m assuming that maybe all the flavour does like a little dance when sitting in the fridge. That’s just my theory though. What do you guys think?
But now I can’t remember what else I’ve been gnawing on. Green smoothies in the morning, that’s for sure! Oh, and lately I’ve been adding in berries so they’re more to the purple side sometimes. Kinda like this..
Clearly that glass hasn’t brought us any puck luck on the ice.. Hoping and praying for a big W on Wednesday!! I still believe in my babes :D
Okay so the point of this post is that I’ve been on a muffin baking binge! I just get the urge to make muffins! These banana coconut muffins I’m about to share with you were literally gone within a couple of hours. They are to die for and guess what? They’re vegan! Woo hoo! Go team :)
What You Need In The Kitch:
- 2 cups spelt flour (brown rice, almond flour, etc if you want completely GF)
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 cup raw sugar
- 1/3 cup EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
- 4 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup coconut flakes
- 1 tbsp ground flax (optional)
Get your oven hot and ready at 350°.
These make 12 medium sized muffins. So you’ll most likely only need one muffin tin.. unless you have a teeny tiny muffin tin. Make sure you line your muffin tin with liners or save paper and use oil to coat your tin. I used liners this time but I think from now on I’m going to go liner free.
Next, mash up your bananas in a bowl. In another bowl mix together sugar and EVOO and then add in the banaynays you just mashed. Now add in coconut milk and vanilla extract and mix together. This is now known as your “wet mixture.”
In ANOTHER bowl mix together all your dry ingredients – flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and coconut flakes. Also if you’re adding in ground flax, do so now :) Okay, okay so now you can add your dry mixture into your wet and mix it all up! Make sure not to over mix though, this may cause the muffins to peak when they are baking. You can also top the muffins with coconut flakes like I did as well if you would like.
Now you are ready to pour the batter into your muffin tin friends! and lick the spatula, spoon, bowl, etc…
Pop in the oven and bake for 20-30 mins :)
Okay, so I have yet to perfect equal muffin shapes. But let’s just accept that each of these muffins is unique in shape in their own special way. I wish I had these right now.. I have blueberry ones sitting downstairs but I’m just such a lover of anything banana. Oh and yes, if you would like to substitute blueberries for bananas go right ahead! It works fabulously.
So now that I’ve shared this yummy treat with you all I have to figure out what the F is going on with my RSS feed. I’m so challenged when it comes to this stuff :( Still a newbie!
One other update! I’ve committed to the Tone It Up Bikini Challenge again this year! Woo hoo! This is such a fun way to get in shape and keep motivated. If you have not checked Karena & Katrina out yet you must do so NOW! I heart these girls so much and the community of wonderful ladies.
Here’s my road to abs thus far! I’m getting there!! Get fit or die trying, is kind of how I’ve been feeling lately. I did a great tabata workout this afternoon. Wow I am now in love with tabata! Such an amaze workout in such little time. Never use the excuse you don’t have time, because girlfriend you DO have time!
I’m delivering you all pizza tomorrow! Stay tuned ;)
