Banana Hazelnut Muffins

Dry Ingredients:

1/3 C EACH – millet, quinoa, spelt & whole wheat pastry flours
1/2 C ground oats
1/4 C ground flax 
1/2 C ground roasted hazelnuts (filberts) OR hazelnut butter
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt

“Wet” Ingredients:

2 large bananas, mashed
*1/4 C evaporated cane juice (granulated vegan sugar)
**1/3 C unsweetened applesauce (3 cubes – see note)
1/3 C non-dairy milk
1 T organic canola oil 
2 t hazelnut extract

Coarse chopped hazelnuts
Raw vegan sugar

Combine the dry and wet ingredients.  Spoon into 12 muffin liners.  Sprinkle 1/8 t each, coarse chopped hazelnuts and raw sugar on top.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 22 minutes.

* These are not too sweet.  Increase sugar to 1/3 cup if you desire more sweetness.

** This equates to 3 frozen ice cubes of applesauce.  I freeze applesauce in ice cube trays so that I always have small amounts of applesauce on hand.  Thaw.

Coffee Cake Muffins

“Wet” Ingredients:

2 mashed bananas
1 C non dairy milk
1 T white vinegar
1/3 C applesauce
1/3 C canola oil
1/2 C evaporated cane juice

Dry Ingredients:

*2 C mixed grain flours (Use 1/3 C of each:  quinoa flour, millet flour, spelt flour, garbanzo bean flour, whole wheat pastry flour & ground oats)
2 T ground flax
1/3 C unsweetened coconut shreds
1/3 C ground walnuts
2 t baking powder
2 t baking soda
1/2 t sea salt
2 t cinnamon
1/2 t ginger

1 C blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 C raspberries (fresh or frozen)

Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and then fold in the berries.

*Depending on the moisture level of the berries (i.e. if using thawed frozen berries) and the size of the bananas, add another 1/4 – 1/3 C flour (wheat or oat) if the batter seems too thin.

Bake in muffin liners for about 22 minutes at 350 degrees.  Makes about 18.

>>NOTES:  To make this recipe gluten-free (GF), reduced fat, and reduced sugar…

  1. For the 2 C flour, use 1/2 each quinoa flour, millet flour, brown rice flour, and oat flour (GF)
  2. Instead of the flax, use garbanzo bean flour
  3. Instead of the walnuts, use rolled oats (GF)
  4. Reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup
  5. Reduce the milk and the vinegar by half
  6. Instead of 1/3 C oil, use about a tablespoon of oil and then the rest more applesauce.
