Ingredients

  • 4 medium over-ripe bananas, or 3-large
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature, or flax egg (see note)
  • 1/3 cup almond milk, or milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup plain Icelandic Provisions skyr
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • cup gluten-free flour blend, or white whole wheat flour (see note)
  • 1/3 cup ground flaxseed
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, grass-fed butter can also be used

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, mash bananas with a fork and add vanilla extract, egg, milk, maple syrup, and Skyr. Mix together with a whisk, and stir in the peanut butter. Combine with a spatula until smooth and thick, and set aside.

  3. In a large bowl combine flour, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt using a clean whisk. When mixed completely, cut in coconut oil.

  4. With a clean spatula, fold in the wet banana-egg mixture into the dry flour mixture. Try not to over mix the muffin batter or your muffins will have a drier texture. Mix until no flour pockets remain. 

  5. Line a muffin tin with muffin liners. For uniform scoops, use an ice-cream scoop to spoon batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake for 15-16 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool before serving.
