First recipe of 2020 let’s gooooooo!!
I haven’t really talked about it on here yet, but I’m working on being on an anti-anflammatory diet (gluten free, dairy free, sugar free). As of now, I can tell you that it is *not* going well😂 But I am trying! And admittedly I don’t have all that much gluten and dairy anyway, but ohhhh sugar has my heart, y’all know that!
So in an effort to…make a better effort, I’m trying to take my sweet tooth and turn her into an actual friend as opposed to an enemy. Enter: monk fruit and stevia – yes, even in baking, ALWAYS.
These muffins are made with cassava flour to leave out the gluten, and a mix of mashed banana, Lakanto Foods Maple Syrup made with monk fruit and Lily’s Chocolate Chips (ok I’ll admit that I didn’t use them here because I forgot I was out), but that chocolate is my go-to! Keep scrollin’ for the recipe which was inspired by this one by Clean Eating Kitchen.
Chocolate Raspberry Cassava Flour Muffins
1 1/2 cups of Cassava Flour (I used Otto’s Naturals)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cups mashed banana (about 2 medium)
1/2 melted coconut oil
1/2 cup monk fruit maple syrup (I used Lakanto Foods!)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup Lily’s Sweets Chocolate Chips (or any, if sugar isn’t a concern!)
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Spray a muffin tin or silicone muffin liners (these are my favorite!) with avocado or coconut oil.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the cassava flour, baking soda, and baking powder.
- In a small bowl, combine the egg, coconut oil (let it cool first!), maple syrup, mashed banana and vanilla.
- Add the wet mixture to the dry, then stir in the chocolate chips until well-combined.
- Fill each muffin cup about 3/4 of the way full and then press down 1-2 raspberries on top of each. I split the raspberries in half to make them fit better!
- Bake for 20-25 minutes (until the tops start to turn golden brown) and eat when warm or store in an airtight container. I highly recommend microwaving these for 10 seconds if enjoying later!
Have you ever baked with cassava flour? This was my second time and I loved it!! Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by😊
