Gluten Free Banana and Coconut Flour Protein Muffins
Posted Apr 26 2012 2:11pm
I am experimenting with a gluten free diet and I use the word experimenting loosely because this is a whole new ballgame. I cannot believe how many products contain gluten and how diligent you have to be on reading labels...I needed a good mid morning snack with protein and was gluten free so I took a banana muffin recipe I had and tweaked it to be gluten free....
Makes 6 Muffins
Start with ingredients at room temperature:
3 eggs room temperature( I used 1 whole egg and 2 egg white)
Melt coconut oil . Mix the first five ingredients together. Combine the coconut flour, protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon Mix the wet and dry ingredients until smooth Fold in currants, if using. Pour into muffin pan
Bake at 400° F for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a muffin comes out clean. Let muffins cool, then store in a container and refrigerate.
What I liked: The flavors all together..I like coconut oil and banana and vanilla combination What I would of changed...I would of added a little liquid, while the bananas did leave it moist I think with the protein powder it needs just a tablespoon of unsweetened almond milk. I will try that on my next batch.
I have my batch in the freezer and it was so convenient to "grab and go" and let it defrost in my cooler to enjoy at mid morning snack time!
