Banana Almond Muffins


Bananas don't stay fresh for too long, the ones I buy remains firm for about 2 or 3 days only.  From there on, it becomes soft and mushy and these are perfect to be converted or make into muffins.  Instead of just bananas, I combined in some almond powder, leaving out eggs and sugar. That glossy and thick crunchy topping seen in the pics are the effects of sprinkling a generous amount of brown sugar on top of the unbaked muffins. If you wondering why I did this??? I get a joy of experimenting and making my recipes unique and different!!!! As for the feedback, everyone was impressed and enjoyed it very much.

Ingredients
750g bananas - mashed
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
110g butter
3 tbsp almond powder
1 tsp baking powder
2-3 tbsp brown sugar

Method:
Into a bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the brown sugar.
Fill greased muffin tins 3/4 full with muffin batter.
Sprinkle a generous amount of brown sugar over the top.
Bake at 250c for 25 mins or until its done.

  3. Mmmmm...these look lovely! And I love the crunch that the sprinkled brown sugar must give. See, I knew you were a baker :)

    PS. Cornish hens are like mini chickens...typically between 1 and 2 pounds apiece.

  11. Here you can buy mushy bananas for use in baked goods like this, for people lazy to wait or another way for shops to earn from soft bananas

  12. thank you so much for all the comments and sharing everyone. The taste was nice as the bananas were sweet enough. We at home don't like very sweet desserts either.
