Hearty & Healthy Banana Muffins

These banana muffins are hearty and moist, thanks to the pureed banana. They’re sweetened by the bananas, Stevia  and a little goji berry powder…no processed sugar. A healthy treat you can enjoy guilt-free.

The muesli gives them a little crunch on top and they are just the right amount of sweet.

I moved out of my bright apartment with my nice kitchen into a basement apartment with one window. This is the first article I have written since the move. Having little natural light makes it challenging to take pictures, but it made me get a little creative.

For me, life rarely goes as planned, and that’s OK. I can still take nice pictures with my one window. Also, my Mom, sister and boyfriend have bright kitchens. I can always “borrow” their kitchen to do an article, and I’ll pay them with food 🙂

Let’s get started.

Preheat the oven to 375° F (191° C), and spray muffin pans with cooking spray.

Add all the dry ingredients to a bowl.

Next, microwave the coconut oil for about 1 minute until it’s completely liquified and add to the bowl. Then, add the egg whites, vanilla extract and vanilla almond milk. Stir until evenly mixed.

Blend the bananas until it’s the consistency of a smoothie.  Add this mixture to the bowl and mix everything together. It already smells good.

Pour the batter into the muffin pan, and top with muesli. It will get nice and crispy in the oven.

Put in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

I took these on a hike, and they kept me fueled til the end.

Enjoy 🙂
