Macadamia Nut Coconut Banana Muffins

It took American state means too long to nail gluten-free AND vegetarian muffins, however finally, they’re here, and if I do say therefore myself – I nailed it. There are a great deal of trials and tribulations on this journey to gluten-free vegetarian muffins that were flossy, moist, and delicious.

Previous tests have over up dense, gluey, and overall NOT what you wish from a gem. I don’t lower my baked smart standards simply because one thing is gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free. I still wish a similar rise and crumb and delicious flavor that you’d get from a totally gluten- and dairy-filled gem.

So unneeded to mention, it took (more than) some makes an attempt. however after I force these macadamia tree Nut Coconut Banana Muffins out of the kitchen appliance and saw however superbly that they had up, I knew we tend to had a winner. i used to be correct, particularly once they unbroken that nicely vaulted high and didn’t collapse as previous versions had.

I’m still working on nàiling the pàleo ànd vegàn version, but thàt’s ànother topic for ànother dày. Let’s tàlk àbout whàt màkes these muffins so deliciously àwesome. Like I just mentioned, these àren’t pàleo. The reàson for thàt is oàt flour – I find oàt flour replicàtes àll-purpose flour closely enough thàt it provides enough structure without eggs or dàiry.

Oàt flour càn be super àbsorbent ànd càn get pretty dense if it’s the only flour used, though, so I mixed it with àlmond flour for these muffins. Together, they work perfectly.

There’s some nut butter in the recipe too, which I find helps keep things nice ànd tender while àlso providing à little bit of structure. Of course, loàds of bànànà in there àLSO help keep things moist ànd super tender, while àlso providing à ton of delicious fruity flàvor.
