It’s official; I’m on a mini muffin craze. These healthy gluten-free banana muffins are contributing to this obsession. Can I eat these 24/7 every day, please?
Of course, my mind is now going crazy with mini muffin ideas. Chocolate–we need more chocolate, like double chocolate chip mini muffins. But that is for another time.
Just like my tapas obsession, these mini muffins will run their course. I appreciate you for hanging on to this food obsession roller coaster.
All you need are 6-Ingredients–well, seven if you want a few chocolate chips on top of each muffin. (And who doesn’t like a little chocolate with their breakfast?)
Now don’t get me wrong–last week’s Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins were out of this world good, however, they don’t have chocolate.
Am I totally biased by admitting that, if there is chocolate in a muffin, it automatically wins over anything else??
Actually, don’t answer that. I think I already know the answer.
These miniature banana muffins are essential to get through the day. They are low-sugar, dairy-free, and gluten-free.
With the natural sugars and sweetness coming from the banana, we need very little additional sweetness to send these into the next world delicious. Well, we need the chocolate. Again, my opinion.
TIP: It is very easy to over bake mini muffins. I strongly advise keeping a close eye on these. Bake for the lowest time and then, if toothpick still doesn’t come out clean, continue for one more minute of baking. It doesn’t take much for these to become chewy if over baked.
On another note, it’s officially been one week of stepping off the cliff into self-employment. Still seems unreal. There are a few things I will say I’m already noticing.
Being home for long periods of time involves more dirty dishes (blah), more messes, and the fur-children are driving me crazy. But, my inner hermit in me is loving the quiet.
I am currently in an epic battle with the large cat OB (short for Obi-Wan-Kenobi). He seems to want to ‘own’ every single item Cooper (our dog) has. We have four cat/dog beds in this house. Cooper sleeps in only one, and OB is hell-bent that he, too, shall own this bed along with the other three.
Truthfully, I’m becoming less and less a cat person. They really don’t give a crap.
If you follow on Snapchat (username:VeggieBalance), you’ll see way more of our fur-children. Cooper definitely makes a frequent appearance. Sorry guys, I just love that dog so much. He’s my buddy when R is on his deployments.
Every morning I pull myself out of bed and make myself a hot cup of green tea to go with these tiny, soft, moist and freakin’ healthy gluten-free banana muffins.
This is the life guys.
Need some pep in your step, a way to motivate yourself to get out of bed? Make banana muffins.
Have I perhaps solved a world issue for most people, i.e., the unbearable struggle of waking up?
I think so guys, I think so. 😉
