Banana Apple Muffins

I found this recipe when I was searching through Pinterest for some blender muffins. I had bananas that needed to be used and a girlfriend at work had made blender muffins and I thought what the heck I’ll give it a try. I stumbled upon Jessie Perry’s blog,  JPerryFitness.com. She had posted the recipe from Autumn Calabrese’s new cookbook Fixate. It’s so simple (which I love) and even better totally delicious with no added sugar.

This is the modified recipe below, I took a few things out and you can see the note by the flour. I’ve tried both Almond Flour and Whole Wheat, and I find that we do like the consistency of the WW better. However the almond flour version is very yummy too if you have a gluten concern.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe bananas mashed
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour -> Tip, you can sub this for Whole Wheat, or Regular All Purpose flour. My little’s school is a “nut free zone” so we sub out for WW Flour.
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 apple chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees
  2. Spray muffin tin – or use silicone muffin cups these work great and are way less mess! (I use these by Zaza Kitchen affiliate link)
  3. Combine eggs, banana, into bowl and mix well
  4. Combine flour, baking soda in a medium bowl, mix well.
  5. Combine both bowls of ingredients together and mix until blended
  6. Add chopped apple and mix
  7. Divide batter evenly into muffin tins (mine made 9 muffins)
  8. Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden brown
  9. Cool and Enjoy!

*This muffin recipe is modified from the new Fixate cookbook by Autumn Calabrese (creator of 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme). They count as 1 purple (fruit) and 1 blue container (almond flour) or yellow (whole wheat/all purpose flour).

Thanks to both Jessie Perry for this great post, and Autumn Calabrese for this great recipe!
