Bake these the night before and have a wonderful Roasted Banana Plum Muffin for breakfast!
Recently I discovered roasted bananas. All of my discoveries are things I find online or see on cooking shows. Which actually I never have time to watch, so thank goodness for food blogs!! Roasted bananas are my current obsession. I want to add them to whatever I am baking. If you have not tried them you really need to. Roasting a banana really intensifies the flavor of the banana.
Basically what you do is you take the whole banana and place it on a cookie sheet. Put it into the oven at 350 degrees and bake it for 10 minutes. Simple and easy. If you follow me on Instagram you can find a picture that I made of how the bananas look before and after baking them. You can cook these up while you are putting together these muffins. When they are done just mash them up and put them into the mixture.
I added plums to my muffins because I wanted a little bit of color and another boost in flavor. As if these bananas do not have enough flavor I went and added more by putting a walnut crust on top of them. I melted butter and brown sugar together. Then added chopped walnuts and put just a spoonful right on top before I cooked them. We have been munching on muffins each morning for breakfast all week (and maybe for snacks too). One thing I wanted to share with you about the muffins are the liners. After baking them I of course needed to dig in but the muffin really stuck to the liner. I though it was a failure. Then I waited for them to cool off and still they stuck. Well I waited overnight to see what would happen and bingo! The liners came off perfectly. So I am going to recommend to bake these the night before and allow them to cool completely before you tear into them. Asking why this happened on Facebook I found out this happens when you have no oil or any kind of fat in your recipe(you can always spray the liner if you want to eat them right away). These have banana Greek yogurt in place of the oil so there is no fat indeed. The yogurt and fruits in these muffins make them very moist and soft. I would also recommend storing them in the refrigerator as well! ENJOY!
