Hi everyone and welcome to another Quick Bite here from Nikoli's Kitchen! The first season is over, but I'll still be delivering weekly goodness into your ears every Thursday with these quick episodes all about super delicious recipes. This week I'm talking about flourless banana bread muffins! The recipe is down below. Please check it out and make it and then let me know how you enjoyed it! Thank you so much for listening!


For the past four years I've been honored to host the Livestream for the Cure, a charity that raises money for the Cancer Research Institute and for cancer immunotherapy, which is training the body's immune system to fight cancer. Since then I, with my co-hosts on Epic Film Guys, have raised over $30,000 thanks to amazing podcast partners and content creators who give their time and money to be part of the event. This year's event is our fifth, and we're looking to add $15,000 to that total, our biggest single year goal to date. Please tune in May 19th - 23rd for 50+ hours of content from podcast partners and creators around the world. Learn more at livestreamforthecure.com.

Flourless Banana Bread Muffins

~| This is a direct adaptation of my banana bread recipe; this can also be prepared in one large 10" loaf pan or two small 8" loaf pans, bake time is 50-60 minutes in that event. |~
~| If you want to make this with half flour or with all flour, omit the baking powder. |~

1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
1 cup dark brown sugar (if desired)
3 egg whites
1/4 cup milk
1 t vanilla
6 ripe bananas, loosely mashed
1-1/2 cups almond flour
1-1/2 cups ground nuts (I used pecans)
1 t baking soda
1-1/2 t baking powder
1 T cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t allspice
1/2 t salt
24 silicone cups or paper cupcake liners

Preheat oven at 350°. 
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar unless you are omitting the sugar- if so, just skip to the next step.
Mix in eggs, milk, and vanilla until well-combined.
Mix in bananas, being sure to leave large chunks of banana (I simply crush my bananas by hand into the wet batter). Stir until combined.
In a separate bowl, combine your almond flour and ground nuts (I've also done just 3 cups of almond flour in these as well and it works just as well; try to make your ground nuts consistent in size to your almond flour).
Add baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and salt; whisk together until everything is well-mixed.
Combine dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir together ONLY until they are combined- do not overmix here.
Fill your cupcake pan(s) with paper liners or line a large baking sheet with silicone cups and spray with cooking spray.
Fill each cup with 1/4 c of batter (should have enough for 24 muffins).
Bake for between 20-25 minutes or until a fork stuck into the middle comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and cool.
