The recipe needs the most simplest ingredients
3 medium eggs
3 very ripe bananas
3/4 cup Almond flour
Topping – 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries.
I love to use fresh blueberries, but you can also use frozen or dry blueberries or other berry of your choice. I found that fresh blueberries is what add the great moisture and perfect sweetness/sourness balance to the muffin.
Optional ingredients: 1tsp Vanilla extract.
1tsp baking soda with 1tsp white vinegar to help the muffins rise
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 Celsius)
Mush very ripe bananas with fork. They will be very easy to mush. Add eggs, almond flour and mix together with fork or you can mix using a hand mixer until the smooth batter. There could be few banana lumps in your batter – no problem!
Spoon the batter into the muffin pan holes about 3/4 full and add blueberries. (About 3-5 blueberries per muffin. The more blueberries the merrier! The more fresh blueberries you add the juicier your muffin will be)
Tip. Experiment with one muffin and add lots of blueberries and see if you like this one.
Bake on the middle rack for 20 minutes. Let cool and start enjoying immediately. They can be stored at room temp. for 3 days. You can also refrigerate them for 7 days.
You can use any muffin pan you have or individual cups. Just spray lightly. In this photo you see I use this silicone muffin pan. I do all my baking in it. I like it because I don’t need to spray and the muffins just pop out of it with ease and perfectly smooth. (Affiliate link above)
