Just a Few Tips
- Make sure that your bananas are overly ripe. The skin should be almost all brown to the point that you would throw them away. These bananas make the best muffins and bread because of their texture and sweetness.
- Many natural nut and seed butter have oil separation. You want to be sure to strain the excess oil before adding it to the blender, otherwise, your batter may become too runny.
- If your batter becomes too runny, you can add 1-2 Tbsp of grain-free flour to help thicken it. We use cassava or blanched almond flour.
- Our family limits sugar intake, so we omit the honey. The bananas add just enough sweetness for us but feel free to bake them according to your personal preference.
- Bake times will vary depending on the pan that you use. To check for doneness, insert a toothpick into the muffin. If it comes out clean, they’re done.
- If you are using sun butter, don’t be alarmed if your muffins turn a mossy green color. It is not mold and will not affect the flavor, I promise. I threw out a perfectly good batch of muffins before I learned about this. Oops… Sunflower seeds contain chlorophyll, also known as chlorogenic acid. While baking, the acid reacts with baking soda or baking powder. Once it has been heated and cooled, it will turn green. It’s a neat natural phenomenon and a fun learning experiment to try with your kids.
