Banana Wheat Germ Muffins with dates

This is another great recipe that I adapted from Isa Chandra Moskowitz. A key here to getting them really sweet is using pretty ripe bananas.

Banana Wheat Germ Muffins with dates

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp Apple cider Vinegar
2 Bananas, very ripe
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup Medjool dates, pitted
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1¼ cups Whole-wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup Wheat Germ
2 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp Sea Salt

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease 12 cup muffin tin.
  • Add vinegar to almond milk and set aside for 5 minutes to curdle.
  • Combine flour, wheat germ, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a medium mixing bowl. 
  • Mash bananas in a large mixing bowl.
  • In the blender blend almond milk, coconut oil, dates, and vanilla
  • Add blender contents to the mashed banana.
  • Next add the dry ingredients and using a wooden spoon combine just until the dry ingredients are moistened. DO NOT overmix.
  • Fill the muffin tin 3 quarters full and bake for 22 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove and set aside to cool. Once the muffins are cool enough to handle remove them onto wire rack and let cool completely
** You can throw some chopped walnuts into these as well.
