Diwali is almost here, literally knocking on the doors and I cannot contain my excitement. Since childhood this has been my favorite festival, and I look forward to it every year. The lights, sweets, everyone in their brightest attire, I love it all. So what am I serving my guests this Diwali, apart from the candied walnuts we made last time? Some warm muffins, yes moist banana muffins. Time for some new ideas, and muffins it is.
The good part, they have fruit in it, I make it with brown rice flour, (you can use whole wheat or all purpose too) and raw sugar, so it’s definitely healthier than the store bought options, and the kids just love it. It’s a great breakfast and snacking option. And believe me your guests will bless you for serving something different this festive season.
Let’s dive into the recipe.
Moist Banana Muffins
1-1/2 cups brown rice flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
4 ripe bananas, mashed
¾ cup raw sugar
⅓ Cup olive oil
½ cup chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat the oven at 170 degrees C, and line your muffin tray with muffin cups or grease with butter.
Mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Then mix together the wet ingredients, banana, oil, egg and the sugar. Fold the banana mixture with the dry flour mixture gently, till all is incorporated well. Add the chocolate chips. Put the mixture in the muffin tray and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. You can check by inserting a toothpick in the middle, it should come clean, that means your muffins are done.
