  • 1 very ripe banana
  • ¼ unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a mini muffin pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl mash banana with a potato masher.
  3. Add applesauce, egg, tahini and vanilla to mashed bananas, mixing well.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and stir until just combined.
  5. Pour batter into prepared mini muffin pan. Optional: top each muffin with a slice of banana.
  6. Bake for ~12 minutes, until golden brown and toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Allow to cool fully and top with additional tahini and chia seeds if desired.
  8. Enjoy!
I recommend using rotary beaters to combine bananas with remaining wet ingredients.
Due to high moisture, I recommend storing these in the fridge to 5-7 days, or freezing!
