Yummy Flourless Mini-Muffins

Thursday, November 13, 2014

I had Monday mostly to myself with no real plans to speak of. I cleaned a little, took a bubble bath (it's a hard life, right?) and then I made these:

Flourless Muffins-1544

They consist of an egg, some peanut butter, and a banana. And, of course, chocolate chips. We mustn't forget the chocolate chips.
And, boy are they delicious! 

So simple to make and I can pretend they are sort of healthy ... or at least not terribly unhealthy. 

Fruit Bowl-1525

Aaannnddd since mine is the house where bananas go to die, I needed something to do with those extra ripe bananas besides freezing them for banana bread or smoothies. Fortunately for me, you can't really taste them in this recipe because I'm not a banana fan. I only eat them because they are packed with nutrients.

Enter this recipe from Averie Cooks. It really was as simple as she said and just as tasty as she claims. 

If you're interested in other gluten free goodies, check out my gluten free Pinterest board. I'm always looking for more tasty recipes to try and I'm going to try to share more of my experiments here, but please keep in mind that I'm no kitchen queen.

In spite of that, I was easily able to make these mini muffins. I hate baking in my German oven - I still haven't worked out how to use it properly and most things burn - but these were easy peasy.

I followed her directions almost exactly except that I didn't have any vanilla extract on hand (what?!? how did that happen?) and I had to bake them a little longer than her recipe called for (again with the weird oven I don't know how to use properly).

This will be a go-to recipe for us. Good for quick breakfasts or sweet treats and easy to pop into a ziplock bag for road trip snacks.

Oh, and did I mention that they are under 100 calories each? I don't usually count calories but that caught your attention, didn't it? Now, go on over to Averie Cooks and try this recipe! You won't be sorry.

  1. They look yummy. I'm going to give these a go. Like you I tend to end up with some rather sad looking banana's

    1. haha! I'm so glad I'm not the only one. I hope you like them!

  2. Bahaha the place bananas go to die - love it. I have the opposite problem... my kids inhale bananas so quickly that I never have any ripe enough for bread or muffins! Poor me, right ;o)

    1. It's awesome that they love bananas. I liked them, too, when I was a kid... maybe I ate too many and burned out on them. Who knows? The summer is the worst because I always battle fruit flies thanks to the blackened bananas. Gross.
