A Tropical Treat No Matter Where You Are
These gluten-free, coconut-scented bites from Oprah's Food, Health and Happiness are no ordinary banana muffins. They're chock-full of good stuff: chopped pecans, grated carrots, shredded coconut and delightfully chewy pieces of dried apricot, not to mention four bananas. Instead of white flour, the recipe calls for almond flour, which is higher in fiber and protein than white flour and is lower in sugar, with a tablespoon and a half of honey serving as the only sweetener (in addition to those ripe bananas). Lemon zest gives the muffins a lovely lightness.
