Banana cauliflower muffins
Ok, so on to these banana cauliflower muffins. Yes, still going with this hidden vegetable theme :D trust me, you won’t be able to detect cauliflower in these muffins. (Unless you don’t blend it well enough – you might end up with chunks – so make sure you blend blend BLEND that cauliflower!).
However even if you can’t quite liquefy the cauliflower, any chunky bits will soften while cooking so unless you’re really inspecting each mouthful of muffin, I still don’t think you’re going to notice there’s cauliflower in these ;)I topped these muffins with a peanut butter icing because, what goes better with bananas than peanut butter?! The peanut butter icing was so easy – it’s just peanut butter, stevia and water. Easy but soooo good. So if cauliflower muffins aren’t your thing, definitely keep that peanut butter icing in mind to use with something else. Or just eat it by the spoonful
(like I did :D ).
I also really need to give credit for the photography inspiration to Nat at Feasting On Fruit who made the most GORGEOUS caramel espresso cupcakes last week! I just loved the flowers on top so much that I could think of no other way to style these muffins. I was so lucky to find these last few flowers from my rose geranium bush!
- Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
- Mix the oat flour, stevia, bicarb and poppy seeds in a large bowl.
- Blend the bananas, cauliflower and tahini until smooth.
- Mix the wet ingredients into the dry until well combined.
- Spoon into a muffin tray and bake for 45 mins.
- Let cool before icing.
4 tbs peanut butter
1 tbs stevia
3 tbs water
Blend or mix well all the ingredients. I used crunchy peanut butter so I blended my icing, smooth peanut butter would work better without blending.
I love reading your comments!
