Olga's Banana Bran Honey Muffins with Ground Tigernuts and Coconut Oil:

These muffins are wholesome, high fibre muffins with the banana lover in mind. I also wanted to incorporate coconut oil and stone ground Tigernuts into my muffin recipe. Stone ground Tigernuts are not nuts but a small tuber that is naturally sweet tasting and natures richest source of fibre.  High in energy and curbs appetite. If you can't find Tigernuts then use wheat germ or ground  chia seeds. Tigernuts are sold in most health food stores.

2 large ripe bananas
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 to 1/2 cup honey (orange blossom honey used) or any favorite honey
2 Tablespoons molasses OR coconut nectar
1/3 cup organic coconut oil, melted (see Link about coconut oil) OR vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups sifted all purpose flour
3/4 cup natural oat bran OR natural wheat bran
2 Tablespoons stone ground Tigernuts (see Link about Tigernuts)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon and/or pumpkin spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1/2 cup raisins (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Grease 18 muffin cups.

Slice peeled very ripe bananas and place in food blender.  Add lemon juice to blender and puree until mixture is smooth.  This should give you about 1 cup of liquid.  Spoon banana puree into large bowl. Add honey, molasses, coconut oil, eggs, vanilla extract and mix until well blended with banana puree.

In another bowl, combine dry ingredients with pecans and raisins.  Add bananas all at once and stir until well mixed but still lumpy, don't overstir.

Fill 16 to 18 muffin cups with batter, each 2/3 full.

Bake in preheated oven on centre shelf for 20 to 25 minutes, or until lightly browned.
