Magic Muffin

This is a muffin that does not have flour, sugar, milk, or regular butter. Now you are thinking, "How can this be possible, is it magic?". Well to me it's kinda magic, really, and that's why I call it Magic Muffin.



The muffins are fluffy and light. They are not very moist and that is why you might want to eat them with honey or maple syrup. I like mune with honey and berries but sometimes I eat them plain. I usually feel bloated after eating cakes and regular muffins but that doesn't happen when I eat magic muffins. Cause they are magic of course : )

I will show you the basic recipe and then some variations. 


Yields 12 regular muffins or 24 mini muffins. However the size of the bananas ans eggs might make a difference in the amount of muffins.

The muffins are better eaten the same day but if you have to store them use an air tight container so they don't loose moisture.  

Remember to heat them in the microwave for a few seconds before eating them.

What You Need:



  • 1 cup peanut butter ( or any nut butter)
  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar 




FYI: You can make your own nut butter. Just place 12 oz of your chosen roated nut in a food processor and let it process until the nuts become butter. It's that simple and you can see the step bu step on the post Homemade Peanut Butter.

What To Do:




Preheat oven to 400F.
Grease a muffin pan with butter.



 




Process banana and peanut butter in a food processor. A blender also works.




Add the eggs and process/blend some more.


Add the baking soda and apple cider vinegar and process/blend untill well mixed.
The batter will be runny.









Put batter in the muffin pan.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. If you insert a toothpick in the center of the muffin it should come out clean with no batter sticking to it.

If you use a mini muffin pan then the baking time is 5-8 minutes.





Before serving heat in the microwave for 10 seconds.
Then drizzle with honey or maple syrup on top.





Or cut the muffin in the middle and drizzle honey or maple syrup.
Add some berries.
Bon Appétit!
