  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions
 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with muffin liners.
  • Add peeled bananas to a large mixing bowl. Using a sturdy whisk or fork, mash bananas until smooth. Add remaining wet ingredients: oil, cashew milk, sugar, chia egg, and vanilla. Whisk until well incorporated.
  • Sift your flours for lighter and more fluffy muffins.
    Add all dry ingredients: S.M.A.R.T. Blend, oat flour, almond meal*, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk together well, until incorporated, making sure no flour patches remain. Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts, if using.
  • Using a large scoop, scoop and drop batter evenly into muffin cups. I use this ice cream scoop for easy scooping and a beautiful domed top**. If needed, smooth batter into an even layer, with a domed top (rise) in the center. Optional: sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the muffins.
  • Bake for 18-25 minutes. Mine took 24 minutes. Allow to cool on a cooling rack for about 1 hour. Lift out and enjoy!

Notes

NOTES
– *To substitute almond meal with oat flour: use a TOTAL of 1 + 2 tablespoons of S.M.A.R.T.  ¾ cups oat flour. Sift your flours for lighter and more fluffy muffins.
**I like to use this ice cream scoop to scoop and drop one scoop of batter into each muffin liner. This scoop helps control the batter, prevent messes and gives you a nice rounded top. Tip: after dropping scoops, lightly tap the pan to even out the batter.
– Storage notes: Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
– Freezing instructions: These muffins freeze well. Store in an airtight, freezer-friendly container for up to 1-2 months. Allow to thaw at room temperature for 15 minutes before enjoying. Or, heat in 15-second increments in the microwave until warm.
