Eggless Banana-Carrot-Almond Muffins

eggless bana-carr-alm muffins

Every time I see some overripe bananas sitting on the counter, I think about baking cake but somehow it never happened until recently. Last week I prepared banana-carrot cake and both V and Ishaan loved it.

Yesterday little prince came home asking for some cake. I promised him I will bake him something. I started preparing for the cake and he brought his tiny chair in the kitchen, stood on it and started getting into pretty much everything!. That’s when I thought of playing the "Help me" card – see, he is at an age when he only does what he wants. That sometimes means he will bring out all his toys and dump them in living room. Then he walks out from there. Just to stop him from making more mess, I ask him to come and "Help me". He gets all charged up and helps with anything I ask – like loading/unloading dishwasher, loading/unloading washing machine etc.

This time I thought it would be a good activity for him to line up the muffin pan. He got very excited. I also gave him some chocolate chips and asked him to add to muffins. He loved doing it (although the work which would have taken 2mins took somewhere about 10mins, I enjoyed it). He was very excited to tell his pappa all about it :).

Ingredients:
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1 cup mashed banana (2-3 ripe bananas)
1 cup grated carrot
1 tea spn baking powder
1/2 tea spn cardamom powder
1/2 cup oil
1/8th tea spn salt
1 cup sugar
Few chocolate chips (optional)

Method:
Preheat the oven at 350F for 10mins.
Mix banana, carrot, sugar, oil till well mixed.
Seive together baking powder, all purpose flour, almond flour, salt, cardamom powder.
Add the dry ingredients one tbl spn at a time mixing all the time.
Line the muffin tin with muffin cups. Fill the batter to 3/4th of the cup.
Add few chocolate chips on top.
Bake for about 20 mins or till they are done.

PS: Almond flour is a last minute substitution, I thought it would add to the flavor. Just powder some almonds to make a smooth powder. I used store bought almond flour. If you don’t want to use it, just replace with 1/2 cup all purpose flour.

I tried the muffins, they tasted good, but turned to be a little sticky, though I made sure they were cooked well and the knife came out clean when I checked whether its baked. So was a little disappointed. Can we use rawa/wheat flour instead of maida?

says:

I always think of using ripe bananas for baking bread, but it doesn’t always happen so I freeze them these days, works well. These look so good and they are healthy to boot, am going to make it right away!

I made these muffins twice on two different occasions. Substituted almond flour with whole wheat and replaced oil with apple sauce. Reduced the sugar, and replaced half of it with honey. They looked identical to your pictures. The problem was — all of them disappeared within minutes, nothing left for me! Thanks so much, that was so easy and wonderful.

Replacing Oil with apple sauce is a very good idea. What quantity of sugar and honey did you use.

Hi Shilpa

I have been waiting to try this recipe for a long time and finally got to it today . The smell was so good but the muffins did not raise and also were very dense and sticky. Since no one else had this problem there might be something wrong with what I have done. I have followed the recipe to the best. Can you suggest what might be the reason for the muffins to have turned out the way they did.

Your adivce would be of great help when I try next time.

Regards
Madhuri.
