2 extra large eggs (or 3 large)
2 -1/2 cups mashed bananas (4-5 medium sized bananas)
3/4 cup butter
20 ml vanilla essence
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of sea salt
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup almond lour
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts go particularly well with banana)
You can substitute the mashed bananas for the fruit puree of your choice. Just be aware that certain fruits are higher in carbohydrates than others. Apples are generally a no, but I've tried this with pears and it was delicious. You can mix in the same spices that you would use for a carrot cake, but I prefer keeping it simple with just cinnamon. Also, if you're craving chocolate, just add a cup of cocoa to the mix and there you go.
Combine all of the ingredients. It's easier to start with eggs and butter and all of the wet ingredients, followed by the dry ingredients. Don't over manipulate your mixture. Stop as soon as everything seems to be mixed in evenly. Transfer to muffin pans and bake at 180* for 30 minutes, or until they are a lovely brown colour on top - keep an eye on them, ovens vary quite a bit.
Let cool and serve as is. Or, if it's a special treat, add some whipped coconut cream. This makes for a great lunchbox treat or breakfast-on-the-go.
