Recipe type: Muffins, Breakfast
Serves: 12 muffins
for the muffins:
- 2 large, very ripe bananas, mashed
- ¼ cup coconut sugar
- ¼ cup coconut oil, softened
- ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tablespoons non-dairy milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups spelt flour
- 1½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
for the fruit filling:
- ⅓ cup Norm’s Farms Blueberry Elderberry Preserves
for the streusel topping:
- ½ cup spelt flour
- 2½ tablespoons coconut sugar
- 1½ tablespoons vegan butter
- 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- pinch fine sea salt
- Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Lightly grease or line a muffin pan and set it aside.
- In a large bowl, mix together the mashed bananas, coconut sugar, coconut oil, applesauce, non-dairy milk, and vanilla.
- Sift in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix until just combined.
- Spoon 1 heaping tablespoon of the batter into each muffin tin (I used a cookie dough scoop and it worked perfectly). Next, spoon 1 heaping teaspoon of the fruit preserves into the center. Using the remaining batter (another 1 heaping tablespoon), fill each muffin tin until nearly full.
- Combine the ingredients for the streusel topping using a fork or your fingers and sprinkle it evenly across the batter. The texture should resemble wet sand.
- Bake the muffins for 18-20 minutes, or until firm to the touch and golden brown. Allow to cool slightly before removing from the muffin tins. I like the muffins best when they’re still warm, but they’re great at room temperature too.
