B-A-N-A-N-A-S

So the third post wound up not happening but that’s alright because now I am posting from an Air Conditioned house, and it’s wonderful because I didn’t realize how much I need air conditioning until I didn’t have it anymore.

Now for the recipe, I actually made these muffins this past Saturday morning as a surprise for Joe. I had two missions with these muffins: find a nut free banana muffin recipe and make them vegan. I couldn’t find anything that fit both of them so I decided to adapt my mom’s cinnamon apple recipe, which is vegan, and substitute the apples for bananas. The result was amazing! Nut free vegan banana muffins in under 30minutes.

Banana Cinnamon Muffins
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter substitute (smart balance)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup applesauce (cinnamon or regular)
4 overripe bananas
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl cream together butter and borwn sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blened. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten.
3. Pour batter into a lightly greased muffin pan. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the muffin comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10minutes, then serve.
