Pumpkin Banana Muffins
I was looking for something different eat that is quick, healthy, hypoallergenic and has all the nutrients my body needs to be healthy.
So I pulled out my famous pumpkin banana muffins. This is delicious with a spoon of pumpkin seed butter and a glass of coconut water.
Full of potassium, zinc, protein omega-3 fats, you really can’t go wrong with these delicious muffins.
Side note- I have reintroduced eggs in my diet and see to tolerate them well! But if you do not tolerate eggs, you can always swap out for egg substitute powder as well!
Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 30 minutes
Bake Temperature: 350F
3/4c flaxseed meal
2 eggs, beaten
2 bananas, mashed
1 scoop pumpkin seed poweder
2 tbsp pumpkin seed butter
1/2c unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 nondairy milk
Instructions: First mix the wet ingredients. Typically, I take the bananas, vanilla extract, milk, and eggs and throw it in my Blendtech blender.
The I also mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. I fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. You can use an electric mixer if you wish, but it really is not necessary. The batter may appear a bit dry , but that is OK. You do not want it to be too moist, it will fall apart.
You can spoon the mixture into a 12 muffin tin (using paper or greasing it with a light spray of grapeseed or avocado oil), and then form then with your hands to make then shape you desire.
Bake it for 30 minutes or until you can remove a toothpick from the center clean.
Allow to cool. Store in refrigerator.
I usually eat one for breakfast with 1 tbsp of pumpkin seed butter. High in minerals, protein, fiber and omega-3 fats, this is a delicious superfood and a quick breakfast or mid-day snack. And with the protein and fiber, this will not only provide satiety, but also help manage your blood sugar.
