Vegan Banana-Kale Muffins

Standard

 

I added kale to this banana muffin recipe because my wonderful husband, Josh, mentioned to me that he thought the kids should eat more veggies! And because I ran out of vegan chocolate chips… The kids LOVED them and Evan, my oldest, keeps asking for more!

Ingredients:

3 very ripe bananas
Leaves of 3 pieces of kale
1/4 cup canola oil
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda

Put the three bananas and the kale leaves into the blender and pulse a few times. Add the oil and sugar and blend until smooth. Let set while preparing the dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, sea salt, and baking soda. Mix the wet with the dry ingredients until smooth and distribute into greased muffin pans.

Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

You wouldn’t think the flavors would go together but they really do! They’re quite tasty. 🙂
