Ingredients: 
  • 1 cup wholewheat flour   
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil melted or vegetable oil like rice bran or virgin light olive oil, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 large ripe bananas mashed with a fork, use the one with black spot on the skin
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey or apple syrup for a lower carb recipe
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon optional
Directions: 
  1.  Preheat oven to 180C (355F)
       
  2.  Grease a 12-holes mini muffins tray with coconut oil. Set aside.

  4. Blend until combine and smooth. It is ok if you still have bites of bananas it is actually better as it adds lots of moisture to those muffins.

  5. Spoon the batter into the muffin tray and bake for 10-15 minutes max or until a chopstick inserted of the centre of the muffins comes out clean.
       
  6. Flip over the tray onto a cooling rack and cool at room temperature before eating.
