Monkey Muffins (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Low-Fat and Sugar Free Banana Muffins)

This is probably the healthiest banana muffin recipe you'll find, but they are also super-duper delicious.  I guarantee it. But don`t just take my word for it.  Adam loved them.  Little A and Big A loved them, but so did Little A's good friend F, and his mom who were over for playdate - folks who are not necessarily used to all the crazy healthy stuff we eat in our house.  Within a very short period of time, two-thirds of the batch had been devoured.  The next morning, the remaining ones disappeared.  Sweet, moist and delish.  I'm definitely going to be making these again!

Monkey Muffins

4 large, ripe bananas
2 chia eggs, or flax eggs (2 ground chia or flax + 6 tbls hot water)
1/2 cup xylitol or stevia baking blend (or coconut sugar, if you prefer)
2 droppers full of liquid stevia, or adjust to taste
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon juice
2 cups gluten-free oat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Whisk together wet ingredients in a large bowl.  Stir together dry ingredients in a small bowl.  Add dry to wet and stir until well mixed.  Divide between greased muffin cups and bake at 375F for 14 minutes.  Let cool and then remove from pan.  Makes 12 muffins.  Extras can be frozen, but they may disappear quickly if you too have a few monkeys in your house!

I have entered this recipe into Vegetarian Mamma's Gluten-Free Friday and Diet, Dessert & Dogs' Wellness Weekend.
