These little muffin bites are so yummy that you won’t be able to stop at just one!
It all started when the kids and I were wanting to make something yummy from scratch that kind of resembled muffin tops. And let me tell you, sunny, quiet afternoons with the kids when boredom hits is exactly when wonderful recipes like this come to fruition! So after mixing a few ingredients that we had on hand, added with a ton of fun, our little experiment ended up having us addicted to these little delights! Just FYI they can be sticky and messy BUT so worth making! 😉
- 1 cup pitted prunes
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup apple sauce
- 1 tbsp 100% Pure Maple Syrup
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- ½ cup wheat germ
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- Warm up coconut oil until it becomes a clear liquid for 15 seconds in microwave or on your stove-top. (Do not bring to a boil.)
- Combine 1 cup prunes, applesauce, maple syrup, vanilla extract, coconut oil and bananas to your food processor. With the “S” blade pulse until completely blended but still chunky in consistency.
- Mix all dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Once mixed well, slowly add the wet ingredients to your dry ingredients folding with a spatula.
- Once mixture has completely been mixed let it sit for 10-15 min in the fridge. (This makes it less sticky so that it’s easier to form the little balls.) After 10-15 minutes you can scoop out a bit of the dough one large soup spoon at a time, rolling into balls and placing them on the cookie sheet.
- Bake in the oven for 15-20 min or until golden brown. Cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Store in airtight container.
