Baking Gone Good

I swear I have no intention of turning this into a food blog but can’t resist sharing ANOTHER fabulous recipe from the cookbook Primal Cravings.

I am pretty sure I will slowly cook my way through this book…happily might I add.

I whipped up a batch of muffins and thought for sure my kids would turn their noses up at them.

Guess what?

THEY DIDN’T!!!

They actually declared these to be the BEST muffins I have ever made and I had to stop them when they reached for a third.

AMAZING!!!

Who said baked goods have to be BAD?

What you will need:

½ cup coconut flour

½ cup tapioca flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ cup butter, melted

½ cup coconut sugar 1

cup bananas, mashed (this is about 2 medium sized bananas)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 eggs

½ cup chocolate chips

½ cup walnuts, chopped (I omitted this since I KNEW the kids wouldn’t be happy if I kept them)

Preheat your oven to 350 ° F and line your muffin tin with paper liners.

Sadly I did not have any of the really cute ones so I had to go with plain white.

Boo.

 In a medium bowl, whisk together coconut flour, tapioca flour, and baking soda.

In a large bowl, whisk together butter, sugar, bananas, vanilla extract, and eggs.

I sort of got distracted with the chaos that IS my house and ended up having to mix the bananas in at the end.

Ooops! 

Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients then gently fold in the chocolate chips (and nuts if you like).

Divide batter among the lined muffin cups.

Bake until they have puffed and the edges have slightly browned, about 20 minutes (or 25 in my ancient oven).

Now pour yourself a glass of milk (almond if you are eating clean) and ENJOY!!!
