Banana Bean Muffins

I once had an allergy attack from the smell of egg – when my toxic load is down, I can eat baked goods that include eggs. When my body is inflamed and reactive, just the smell of egg is enough to give me a bad reaction. I do enjoy baked goods, but I try to substitute eggs in recipes whenever possible.

Here are some substitutes that I have found work well for different baking needs:
Xanthan gum can be added for egg-free cakes and cookies, and milk-free ice cream. (This works well for binding and adding some texture)
As a binder for cakes, cookies and muffins, using 1/2 of a mashed banana or ¼ cup of organic applesauce works well. (Can also puree other fruits)

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup gluten-free White Bean Flour
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp gluten-free baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp gluten-free baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1/4 cup of applesauce, (or 2 eggs if not substituting)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup GFCF milk plus 1 t lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup applesauce or pear sauce
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup raisins or chopped pecans

Note:

I have found that organic applesauce works best for baking muffins, and also provides the best consistency and taste compared to other fruit purees that I have tried.

Preparation:

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, soda, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
  • In another medium bowl, add the mashed banana, and add the egg while preferably using an electric mixer on medium speed, continue to beat until smooth.
  • While continuing to beat the mixture, add sugar, milk, applesauce and vegetable oil.
  • Add the dry ingredients from the first bowl into the wet mixture, beating until combined.
  • Stir in the raisins. Spoon into 10 greased muffin tins.
  • Bake at 375°F for 18-20 minutes.

    I can’t live without my Banana Bean Muffins. I’m not sure what it is about them

    when I found out that Xanthan gum works well as a substitute for eggs, my life was changed and now each batch of muffins I make is egg-free.

    I’m so grateful to Banana Bean Muffins for creating a gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free muffin that is also GFCF. I never knew that was possible! When my body is under stress, I can’t eat anything else due to the severity of my allergies usually.

    I never knew that there were so many substitutes in the world of baking until I had to go gluten-free and then vegan. I didn’t want to give up eating my favorite foods so I started experimenting with different substitutions and found that they work just as well!

    I’ve tried many mixtures and substitutes for baking needs, but these muffins have been my favorite so far! Substitutes that have worked for me are Xanthan gum for egg-free cakes and cookies

    As a gluten intolerant person, I was really skeptical when I first saw Banana Bean Muffins. They are super delicious and so easy to make!

    Simply add one egg and milk to the batter, and voila.

    Enjoying baked goods again has been great; my favorite so far are Banana Bean Muffins. They’re gluten-free, dairy-free, and they taste incredible! I’m not the only one that thinks so, either. I was surprised to find out how many people have food allergies and sensitivities these days.

    I am allergic to eggs and Banana Bean Muffins are my go-to! They are gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar free, which is a huge plus.

    I am proud to say that Banana Bean Muffins are some the only baked goods I can eat without any adverse reaction. They are gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free.

    I am beyond delighted with these muffins. I have not had one episode of “egg-allergy-attack” since I started eating these muffins. Even if my toxic load is up and I’m not excited to eat, the smell of these muffins calms me down and starts my digestion process!

  17. jaraineines

    I only wish I had found out about Banana Bean Muffins sooner! The texture of the muffin is so nice and the flavor is just right without being too sweet. I can’t believe the price and how many muffins you get per package! If you’re looking for an alternative to eggs, this product is perfect because it includes a tbsp of flax powder that
