22 Jan 2013
Happy January everyone! I am excited to share recipes with you in 2013. It is so fun developing new recipes using my favorite Attune Foods cereals, I have many great ideas lined up for the new year.Whether or not you keep new years resolutions these muffins will fit into a healthy, great tasting strategy for 2013 and beyond. These Banana Bread Muffins use my all-time favorite Uncle Sam cereal.
Typically banana bread and anything associated with it is filled with all kinds of refined flours and excess sugars. These muffins will suit you, my friends, and will help you stick to those skinny New Year’s resolutions, you hear me?!
A little bit of yogurt, mashed bananas and coconut oil keep these soft and moist. Heaping handfuls of nuts and raisins add great flavor and a little more fun to each bite. I love to slather my Banana Bread Muffins with peanut butter or almond butter too.
Banana Bread Muffins
1 1/4 cup (170 g) Oat Flour
1 cup (65 g) Uncle Sam Cereal, ground into a flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon fine Sea Salt
1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
2 large Eggs, whisked
2 very ripe Bananas (1 cup, 250 g) mashed
1/3 cup (80 ml) fat free, plain Greek Yogurt
1/4 cup (80 ml) unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
4 droppers full Vanilla Stevia Drops
2 tablespoons melted Coconut Oil, Butter or Ghee
2/3 cup (100 g) Raisins
2/3 cup (75 g) chopped nuts (I love Pecans and Walnuts)
Any dried fruit: cranberries, apricots, blueberries
Pre heat oven to 350 F with the rack in the middle. Prepare a muffin pan with muffin
liners. In a food processor or blender pulse Uncle Sam cereal until it forms a fine crumb/
flour. Whisk together dry ingredients in a bowl (excluding raisins and nuts) Combine the
wet ingredients. Make a batter, well combining the wet & dry ingredients. Fold in raisins
and nuts. Fill muffin pans with the batter and bake until a toothpick comes out crumb
free about 20 minutes.
