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