Allergy Friendly Banana Bread Muffins

I've made these Muffins for the kids several times now. They are always a hit and super easy to make!


Banana Bread Muffins

3 c flour
1 1/2 c granulated sugar
2 t baking powder
2 t baking soda
1 t salt
1/2 c coconut oil (melted)
1/2 c coconut milk
6 medium ripe mashed bananas
2 t vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In stand mixer, or using a hand mixer, whichever you prefer, blend bananas until smooth. Add oil, coconut milk and vanilla until combined well. Slowly add in dry ingredients while mixing the batter. Spoon batter into lined muffin tins. Fill close to the top. Bake for 18-22 minutes.

Yields about 2 dozen standard size muffins.


(I also make these in Jumbo size (pictured below). It is 1.5 times this recipe and the baking time is 35-38 minutes. This Yields a dozen.)

Allergy Friendly, Vegan Snickerdoodles - Tastes like classic Snickerdoodles!

It's rare that I come up with an Allergy Friendly cookie recipe that actually tastes like the real thing. These are perfect though! And Vegan to boot.


Allergy Friendly, Vegan Snickerdoodles

2 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour (I like Gold Medal Organic because it has no Barley)
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
16 tablespoons Earth Balance Soy Free Buttery Spread (http://earthbalancenatural.com/product/soy-free-buttery-spread/)
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs worth of prepared Ener G Egg Replacer (http://www.ener-g.com/egg-replacer.html)

Coating

1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon


Directions

Whisk together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.

In a large bowl beat together buttery spread, sugar and vanilla with a hand mixer until fluffy. Add egg replacer and beat well.

Scrape sides and add flour mixture. Mix with a fork until fully blended (I tend to use my hands)

Mix together coating in a small bowl.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Shape heaping tablespoons of dough into balls and coat them in the sugar and cinnamon coating. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.

Bake for 8-10 minutes. The cookies will be puffed up a bit and settle while cooling. Allow to set for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet and then transfer to cooling rack,
