I know what you are thinking chocolate, banana haven’t I seen that in other recipes on the Tortilla Channel before? Correct! Just look at my vegan chocolate banana muffin, French toast tortilla or my fruit cake with banana and (drumroll) chocolate.
I use these two ingredients a lot in sweet recipes as well as apple sauce my favorite substitute for butter in my cake recipes. In my opinion you can never have too much banana and chocolate but today I am switching it up just a little bit.
Last time I made the muffin with a flaxseed egg replacement but in this recipe I am using the magic egg replacement called aquafaba. I hear you thinking aqua what? What is it and where do I get it? Well chances are you already have a lot of aquafaba in your cupboard. Aquafaba comes in cans of beans like chickpeas, kidney beans, black beans, red beans, cannellini beans.
The next likely question is, will my sweet muffin taste of beans then? Simple answer is no, it will not. The liquid has a distinct taste but as the ingredients combine and will be baked the muffins will fluff up due to the aquafaba but will not take on the taste. I have been so amazed by the results of baking with aquafaba and I do not miss egg in this recipe.
So do not just drain a can of beans but preserve this liquid if you are planning on baking a recipe that requires egg substitute. With a hand mixer you can turn it into whipped eggwhite without egg, use it in a merengue or you can use it for eggless mayonnaise. About 3 tbsp of aquafaba equals 1 egg.
What make these muffins so good? They are:
- Sweet and fluff
- Made with spelt flour
- Lots of protein
- A bit chocolatey
- Contain pecan nuts
- Oreo cookies
- Banana and raspberry
If you love muffins you sure have to give these ones a try.
