The Secret to the Perfect Banana Nut Muffin
Somehow muffins seem to be really hard to get right – am I alone in that? Maybe it is just me. But if you agree, here is one of the best tips I have learned – do not over stir. Can it really be that easy? Yep! Over stirring your ingredients make the muffins denser, and we all want that fluffiness when we bite into one! So don’t worry about getting every last lump out.
Also be careful with flours – they are not all created equal. Coconut flour in particular tends to make very dense baked goods if you don’t make other tweaks to the recipe. So stick to the recommendations I give below if you want yours to look like mine! If you really want to make these with coconut flour – feel free to message me and ask how!
Do you have any secrets to your perfect muffin??
Other than that this recipe is pretty straightforward. We take advantage of the sweetness in our bananas (the riper the sweeter!) and add a little maple syrup for good measure. You could always make it without a sweetener at all if that is more your jam! These will still have a nice hint of sweetness without it. Especially if you make it with the gluten free all purpose flour (whole wheat flour tends to have a more distinctive taste in my opinion)
Then the only question becomes what nut butter to slather all of them! I recommend pecan 😉
