Nicola Rich


1 Banana - mashed
2 Tbsp coconut oil (or other)
1/2 cup Tigernut flour (get this from Amazon or elsewhere)
1 egg (I use duck as it's more nutritious)
1/2 tsp baking soda

I like to make chocolate ones so I add 2 Tbls of cocoa powder
You can also add blueberries and cocoa chips
I often add 2 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together and put in muffin moulds - It makes 3 big ones or 4 medium.

Bake at 180 C for 12-15 mins. Do not over cook - the middle should still look soft when you take them out as they continue to cook out of the oven and get too dry, if overcooked.

This recipe is one of the few "cake" type things I can eat as it's...
Gluten free
Dairy free
Sugar free

It has been an interesting time trying to make things that are out of the normal and find things that I don't react to!
