Daniel Fast Chocolate Coconut Steel Cut Oat Muffins

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.  These also taste good with peanut butter on them.

The flavor of these is REALLY good... but they are dense and chewy.  I personally like these muffins the best right after they have been made.

1 cup Oat Flour
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 Tbsp Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 tsp corn starch
1/2 cup  Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 cup Steel Cut Oats  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 cup  date syrup 
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
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)

Mix the steel cut oats, date syrup,  applesauce and mashed bananas 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 25-30 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 PanCasabella 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 !!!
