What to do with Overripe Bananas??

I have no idea why I haven’t done this before, it’s so easy and fast!!

Just put 4 ingredients into a blender

banana muffin ingredients

banana muffin ingredients

  • Take some over ripe bananas – I used 3
  • 4 small eggs or 3 large ones
  • about 3/4 tsp baking soda or bi-carb soda
  • a jar of ABC spread

grease a muffin tin or two with coconut oil and pour in the runny batter to about 2/3 of each hole.

bake until you can smell them and they are colouring on top, less then 10 mins on 200C

Tip: Take them out of the muffin tin while they are still warm, it’s much easier.

Happily they are gluten, dairy and sugar free. They are also soft, moist and completely yummy!!

Enjoy!

HEALTHIER LOLLIES AFTER SOME PRACTICE

So I’ve had a few goes at the gummy lollies now – afterall, I have a whole container of gelatin!

Here are my finding:

Maple syrup has the most sweetness and flavour for the quantity, and it’s paleo for those who prefer.
Coconut sugar is also great but turns lighter coloured gummies caramel coloured.
Frozen berries make great lollies
If I put in vanilla I only put a couple of drops, we don’t need it.
The gelatin must go into cold liquid…
Lime lollies are like sour gummies and awesome!!
It’s all about the presentation, if they look good, they will be more likely to be eaten. Try some natural food colouring from the health food store.
Put them in a container you cannot see into if you don’t want them eaten all at once!!
Green Lime and yellow lychee lollies

My recipe is very basic now, using ratios of:

  • 1/3 cup fruit/juice
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of gelatin
  • about 1 tablespoon of sweet stuff
Mix it all together while cold, let sit for 5 minutes, it should go thick. Simmer for 5 minutes then let cool a bit again before pouring into jelly moulds.
They take about 15 minutes in the freezer. Store in the fridge, covered.

Enjoy!
