Gluten/Sugar Free Banana Date Muffins

I had every intention of coming to work on time this morning, but decided to bake muffins instead.  I was in the kitchen finishing up the last of my breakfast when I noticed that the bananas were going ripe, and when I mean ripe, I mean that there are brown spots everywhere and no one likes the soft banana.  I had a feeling that if I left those there that they would just end up in the trash.  So rather than wasting perfectly good bananas, I preheated the oven and got to baking.

This recipe is from the site:  http://paleomg.com and they’re originally supposed to be donuts, but I don’t have a donut pan.  So I made them muffins and omitted a few things.  The original “Chocolate Banana Coffee Donuts” recipe can be found HERE.  Below is an adaptation from that recipe.

 

GLUTEN/SUGAR FREE BANANA DATE MUFFINS

Ingredients:

4 Bananas

4 Medjool Dates, Pitted

3 Eggs

1/4 cup coconut flour

2 tblsp of melted coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp of baking soda

1/4 tsp of baking powder

*Optional – 1/8 cup honey.  To be honest, the ripe bananas and dates are sweet enough.  Try a batch without the honey and if you think it’s not sweet enough then for your next one, add the honey.

 

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 375 F.

2.  In a food processor, puree the bananas.

8.  Pop in oven for 20-25 minutes.  They are done when you stab them in the middle with a toothpick and it comes out clean.

9.  Take them out of pan and let cook on a bakers rack for a couple of minutes.

10.  ENJOY!!  If you want to save them, store in an airtight container.  They’ll last about a week.
