Banana, Fig and Walnut Muffins with Salted Caramel Shots

Thanks to Kira Westwick for this amazing recipe! Gluten and dairy free and naturally sweetened, these muffins are sure to be a crowd pleaser for all! Muffins with Salted caramel shots are all the rage right now, these are optional of course, and my healthy whole food version is to die for ;)

Ingredients (Muffins)

  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • 3 organic eggs
  • 2 TBS Flannerys Own Organic Maple Syrup, or preferred sweetener
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp real vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup Flannerys Own Organic Coconut Oil
  • 2 tsp Flannerys Own Baking Powder
  • 2 1/2 cups Flannerys Own Blanched Almond Meal
  • 1/4 cup Flannerys Own Organic Desiccated Coconut
  • 1/2 cup Flannerys Own Figs or Dates, chopped

Ingredients (Walnut Crumble)

  • 1/2 cup Flannerys Own Blanched Almond Meal
  • 1/2 cup Flannerys Own Walnut Halves, finely chopped
  • 2 TBS Flannerys Own Organic Maple Syrup, or preferred sweetener
  • 1 TBS Flannerys Own Organic Coconut Oil
  • Sprinkle cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract, optional

Ingredients (Optional Salted Caramel Shots)

  • 1/2 cup Flannerys Own Cashew Spread
  • 1/2 cup Flannerys Own Organic Maple Syrup
  • 1 TBS Flannerys Own Organic EV Coconut Oil
  • Dash of pure vanilla
  • Good pinch of Flannerys Own Fine Himalayan Salt
  • Splash of water, if needed to caramel consistency
  • 9x 12ml syringes

Method

  • Preheat oven to 160C.
  • Place banana, eggs, oil, vanilla, sweetener, cinnamon and baking powder in a blender and blend until smooth. Mix together with dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  • Spoon into a muffin tray lined with muffin cases.
  • To make the crumble rub the ingredients together between your fingers for a crumble topping. Sprinkle over each muffin before going into the oven.
  • Place into the oven and set the timer for 20 minutes. Check with a skewer, and continue cooking if needed until it comes out clean- they will take 20-30 minutes, depending on your oven. Take care not to burn the topping.
  • Meanwhile blend or process the caramel until smooth, and fill syringes. These are available at the pharmacy.
  • Once muffins are cool garnish with shots and fresh figs.

Tips

  • Fresh or frozen berries or your favourite dried fruit or nuts are great additions to this recipe.
  • Makes 9 large muffins.
