The steel cut oats give the muffins a chewy texture. As with all Daniel Fast muffins, since you can not use baking powder or baking soda, they do not rise like "regular" muffins - resulting in a denser, chewier muffin. I like mine warmed up in the microwave.
1/3 cup Oat Flour
1/3 cup Corn Flour
1/3 cup corn starch
1 and 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 and 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 cup Steel Cut Oats (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 cup date syrup
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 medium to large very ripe bananas, mashed (if your bananas are smaller, you will probably need to increase the liquid by 2-4 Tbsp)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix the steel cut oats, date syrup, applesauce, almond milk, mashed bananas and vanilla extract in one bowl.
Mix the rest of the dry ingredients in another bowl.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.
Pour into muffin pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
I like using the silicone bakeware for my muffins. The muffins come out so easily and I don't need to grease the pan. My favorites are: Casabella Silicone Standard Muffin Pan, Casabella Silicone Large Muffin Pan, Casabella Jumbo Muffin Cups.
The OXO Large Scoop is GREAT for scooping out batter into the muffin pan. It is MUCH neater than when I used a spoon to scoop the batter into the pan - I no longer get batter all over the muffin pan !!!
