Banana Cauliflower Muffins

Ok, so on to these banana cauliflower muffins. Yes, still going with this hidden vegetable theme 😀 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 😀 ).

Notes

FOR THE PEANUT BUTTER 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.
