Healthy Macrobiotic-Style Banana Muffins

Healthy Macrobiotic-Style Banana Muffins

Here's a macrobiotic muffin that doesn't use eggs or dairy products! Although the use of bananas is not really macrobiotic.

Ingredients: 6 muffins

Banana (preferably ripe)
2 (about 250 g)
●Flour
90 g
●Whole wheat flour
50 g
●Beet sugar
2 tablespoons
●Salt
a pinch
●Cinnamon
1 teaspoon
●Aluminum-free baking powder
1 and 1/2 teaspoon
Canola oil
50 g
Oatmeal (optional)
1 handful
Additive-free soy milk
100 ml

Steps

1. Preheat your oven to 180 ℃. Use a masher to mash 200 g of the bananas. Cut the remaining banana into slices to be used as topping.
2. Combine all of the ● ingredients and the canola oil in a blender and mix until crumbly.
3. Put the mixture from Step 2 into a bowl and mix in the oatmeal. Then, add the soy milk and mashed banana and mix.
4. Pour the batter into a muffin pan filled with muffin cups, and top with the banana slices. Bake in an oven for about 30 minutes.
5. I tried making a variation using cocoa powder. Macrobiotic Cocoa Muffins (Recipe ID: 2504433). These are also delicious.

Story Behind this Recipe

I received a lot of fruits as a gift, so I came up with this recipe to use up the bananas I'd bought! The sweetness of the muffin will change depending on the ripeness of the banana, so adjust the amount of beet sugar to desired taste. If you've got a sweet tooth, then maybe 3 tablespoons of beet sugar will work for you.
