Baking for Buddies

I got to see my Sweet Hubby and one of his co-workers today in the middle of the work day! I love those surprises! The first thing I was asked is,"are there any snacks? or baking?" My Awesome Hubby takes goodies to work all the time, sharing them, and talking me up [its hard to live up to such hype ;)] to his buddies. The co-worker he was with today told me that he had asked his wife for banana muffins the day before, and when she didn't bake them for him he thought, Katie would have baked them for me. And so that's what I did as soon as he left! Darius and I created a new recipe in said co-workers honor, and my goodness is it amazing! If you love healthy snacks that are high in fibre, a good source of protein, contain no colours, preservatives, or refined sugar, then you're going to love these! Oh, and did I mention that they are drool worth-ily delicious and vegan? No word of a lie, these babies are perfect!

Banana [Coco]nut Muffins
an original recipe created by me!

3 very ripe bananas
1/4 c. coconut oil
3/4 c. honey
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2/3 c. coconut milk

2 c. fresh milled whole wheat flour
1/2 c. coconut flakes
1/3 c. chia seeds
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp baking soda
1 c. chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350*F.  Peel and mash bananas in a large bowl. Add the rest of the wet ingredients to the banana mixture, and blend well. Add all of the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, and blend thoroughly. Spray muffin tins with canola cooking spray, then fill each well 2/3 full.  Tap the muffin tins on the counter a few times to release the air bubbles, the place in preheated oven. Bake for 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of muffin comes out clean. Once baked, remove from oven and set on cooling racks before removing from muffin tins.

Enjoy these for breakfast, or as we have today, anytime!
