My kids can eat muffins for days. They would prefer a muffin for every meal. Last night we all went to dinner at Bean Vegan Cuisine over on the East side of Charlotte. The owner is super sweet and ended up slipping my kids a vegan banana apple muffin with their dinners – which they ate to the exclusion of all else. 🙂 Of course, after having a nibble of theirs I immediately started thinking of how to make them, so today I decided to experiment. This ended up being a pretty thrown together recipe but it turned out so well that I want to write it down for future use!
6 very ripe bananas
2 small peeled and chopped apples
1 cup honey*
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup applesauce
10 pitted dates (I pulsed mine in the food processor for a minute before adding them)
3 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoon baking soda
Mix all of the ingredients together and then in pre-lined muffin tin bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. Yields about 30!
*If you don’t personally use honey you can sub out for sugar or agave.
These muffins are super delicious! Moist, fluffy and dense. Bonus! They are healthy enough for breakfast or sneaky healthy dessert. Enjoy!
