Bittersweet Banana Muffins

 This is banana bread in a muffin, suitable for snack time and much less sweet than than a standard banana bread.  And really, bananas are sweet enough, don't you think?  Banana breads needn't have so much added sweetness to taste delicious.  Breads for dinner and snacks can have less sugar and still have delectable taste.  I liked this variant on bananas in baked goods.  If you want a sweeter and more moist muffin, however, you can try adding some extra mashed banana or sugar to taste.

You will need:
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 3 cups of oat flour
  • 1-3 tablespoons of baking powder
  • 1 bottle of mild-flavor beer (for a gf muffin, you can use gf beer)
  • cinnamon and sweetener to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Mash the banana.
  3. Fluff the oat flour with a spoon, along with the baking powder.
  4. Mix together the banana mash and flour mixtures, along with the beer.  Stir until the clumps of flour get dissolved.
  5. Add cinnamon and sweetener to taste.
  6. Pour batter into lined or greased muffin tins.
  7. Bake for ~20 minutes, or until tester comes out clean.
  8. Enjoy!
Makes 12 standard size (whole grain, gluten-free, vegan, 100 calorie) muffins.
