Yummy!!! DH, DD and I liked these sweet banana "chocolate" muffins. I made ours gluten free using one batch of recipe#360337, using sweet rice flour in place of potato starch, white sugar as called for in the higher amount here, no baking powder, but I did add 1 tbs organic apple cider vinegar at the end to help with the rise, a bit over 1/4 tsp sea salt, a bit extra organic coconut oil, a bit extra really black skinned mushy banana, regular carob powder (I didn't notice it said toasted), no berry applesauce (that's why the extras), all carob chips, plus the rest of the ingredients.
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 cup toasted carob powder
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup sugar (adjust according to your sweetness preference)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon (prefer canela cinammon)
- 1 cup mashed overripe banana
- 4 ounces unsweetened berry applesauce (1 of those prepackaged snack cups)
- 1⁄3 cup coconut oil
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1⁄2 cup carob chips
