Ingredients
  

  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 1/4 c maple syrup/agave
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp plain unsweetened yogurt Kite Hill vegan is my fav
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cup super fine blanched almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 c blueberries fresh or frozen

Icing without Powdered Sugar

  • 1/4 c coconut cream canned, do not shake, stir or refrigerate
  • 1 tsp agave

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350°F and line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  • If using frozen blueberries: Place the blueberries in a strainer and rinse under cold water until the water draining out runs almost clear. Place on a towel and dry them thoroughly. Place in the fridge on a dry towel until ready to use.
  • Mix the almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together in a small bowl
  • Puree the banana with the agave/maple syrup in the blender or using an immersion blender so that there are no chunks. Add the eggs, yogurt and vanilla and stir to combine.
  • Add the dry ingredients and stir until smooth.
  • Stir in the blueberries.
  • Fill the liners to 3/4 full.
  • Bake 22-25 minutes or until the top is set and bounces back from a gentle tap.
  • Cool in the cupcakes in the pan for 5 minutes then cool on a wire rack.
  • See above for muffin toppings including my Icing Without Powdered Sugar.
