Just Bananas Muffins (C3)

From Forks Over Knives website

These have no sugar, no salt, no oil, no flour, no eggs.

And yes, they DO have flavor!

I made them last night and used large bananas; if you use large bananas, only use 3 of them would be my recommendation.  The reason I suggest this is that the amount of apple juice and applesauce is intended for small to medium size for the sweetness and with large bananas, they do need a bit more sweet to them.

What I plan to do with my batch that I made (I made jumbos) is to split them open and heat them up and put a dollop of applesauce on top of each half.

I have modified this recipe a bit:

  • Added 1 scoop of protein powder (I use banana flavored protein powder)
  • Reduced the ground oats (after grinding) down to 1 1/2 cups
  • I use 1 Tbsp vanilla extract instead of 1/2 Tbsp
  • Add a little Stevia as needed. Depending on the ripeness of the bananas, the sweetness varies a little bit
  • Add a little bit of oil -- this adds moistness to the finished product
  • Bake 15-20 minutes
