Avocado Banana Muffins!

Nick is still totally into whole foods. So, I have been combining healthy fats to create a few snacks and meals for him. One of those is "Avocado Banana Muffins"! The recipe can be found here.

To make things easier on you, I have copied and pasted the directions from the fitness website...  

1/3 cup of crushed nuts/seeds (I used crushed almonds, could use flaxseed or LSA)
 *I also crushed almonds. 
1 cup of coconut/almond flour
   *Nick loves coconut, so I stuck with coconut flour.
1/2 cup chopped walnuts 
2 ripe bananas 
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda 
2 eggs 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 ripe avocado
1/4 cup avocado oil  
    *I used Coconut oil instead.  This does cause the muffins to be more soft.
2 tablespoons honey 
1/4 cup coconut milk  

Cooking Instructions
Grease muffin tins with some butter or oil Heat oven to 200 degree C, 375 F.
Place all dry ingredients in a bowl
In another bowl add avocado, oil, honey and eggs.
Use a stick whiz or blender to mash. Beat until smooth.
Add the mixture into dry ingredient.
Add in mashed bananas and coconut milk, and stir until combined.
Pour mix into muffin tins, enough for 12 and bake for 12-15 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.      
    *I tried cooking these muffins for 11 minutes. They came out a bit gooey, so I set them back in for 5 minutes. This was baking total of about 16 minutes. Keep checking on your muffins because it may depend on your oven for how long they cook for.

We hope you enjoy them as much as Nick does! :) Again, whole foods has been quite the ticket for us. I am so thankful we came across information about feeding Nick whole foods, and thank you to all those that have encouraged me to do so!
