Banana pound cake muffins
Sugar free dessert became the only way for me to bake for my husband, what to do for a man that loves sweet? It was easy for me, I started re-creating all of my baking recipes for him as sugar free dessert since we found out he is diabetic and that was many, many years ago…
This recipe is no exception, its based on my Banana Nut Bread Muffins – Sugar free recipe… but I wanted to make them in the form of muffins… you ask why I like this method?
One simple reason, I don’t have to deal with my husband cutting pieces of the loaf and leaving it on the counter for me to clean up the crumbs after him, he swears its not him doing it!!!
When I came up with this recipe I did not have enough nuts to add to the batter and my husband is always asking for more nuts in anything I bake with it, so the next best thing was just top the muffins and no need to add it to the batter…
Baking this banana bread in a muffins form is as easy as it can be, I could bag them and freeze them, all he needs to do is pull one at a time from the bag and heat it in the microwave for 10 second, even though he loves to eat cold food I don’t know why or how, I stopped asking a long time……anyway no mess, no crumbs on my kitchen counter and everything stays clean!!! Smart ha???
I called them pound cake for the aroma, taste and flavor of a pound cake in one simple muffin… very tasty and delicious… grab your coffee or tea to accompany this delicious muffin..
Pre-heat oven to 350
2 sticks room temperature unsalted butter
1 cup monk-fruit sugar
3 tbsp. sugar free brown sugar (I make my own)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking powder
3 ripened bananas
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 large eggs room temperature
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Into a bowl of stand mixer fitted with the flat beater attachment, cream butter, sugar and brown sugar for few minutes until smooth and creamy.
Add eggs one at a time, mix well after each addition.
Add vanilla extract, mix on high speed for one minute.
In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, add on low speed in thirds.
Add ripened banana and mix for few seconds until the banana is incorporated in to the batter.
Line two muffin pans with baking paper.
With an ice cream scooper, scoop the batter into lined paper, top each muffin with the chopped walnuts.
Bake for 32-34 minutes, cool in the pan for 10 minutes, remove and cool completely on cooling racks…
That’s if you could resist the aroma…
