  • 1 Ripe Medium to Large Banana I squeeze them between my fingers and then whisk them smooth. You can also smash them with a fork and then whisk.
  • 1 tbsp Sunflower Seed Butter
  • 16 oz Applesauce
  • 2 tbsp Vanilla I suggest using the highest quality that you can find.
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder I make mine "heaping." It helps to make this dense muffin fluffier!
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon Again, the better the quality - the better your end results!
  • 1 tsp Apple Pie Seasoning
  • 1 2/3 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk Reduce this to 1 1/2 cups if you increase your maple syrup to 1/2 cup.
  • 1/3 cup Grade A Dark Maple Syrup You could increase this to 1/2 cup depending upon how sweet you want them. If you increase the syrup to 1/2 - reduce your almond milk to 1 1/2 cups.
