BANANA CUPCAKE
(30 servings / 45 minutes)

Ingredients
5 ripe bananas
1 apple peeled and diced
½ cup chopped walnuts (or Brazilian nuts)
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
3 eggs
½ cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 ½ cups plain bread crumbs
1 tbs. baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
cinnamon and sugar for dusting


Directions
1 – In a bowl, mix apple, 1 diced banana, walnuts and chocolate chips.
2 – Add cinnamon and set aside.
3 – In the blender, mix eggs, oil and 4 bananas until mixture is creamy.
4 – Pour mixture in a bowl and add sugar, bread crumbs and baking powder, mixing well.
5 – Add fruits and chocolate chips.
6 – Place the batter into the cupcake pan, filling it to 2/3.
7 – In preheated oven, bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes.
8 – After bake, dust with sugar and cinnamon on top.
Tips
  • Add raisins or other dried fruits into the batter.
  • For a healthier recipe, replace ½ cup of bread crumbs for the same amount of oat or flaxseed flour.
  • You can also use brown sugar.
  • To bake a cake instead of cupcakes: on step 6, place the batter into a pan greased and dusted with sugar and cinnamon. Step 7: bake at 350°F for about 35 minutes.
