Believe it or not, I disliked honey for years for zero reason at all. I think I psyched myself out about honey because honey comes from bees, and I was completely terrified of bees and being stung. I recognize how irrational that was, and opened my tastebuds up to tasting, and ultimately loving, honey. I'm sure i've mentioned this before, but I have amazing neighbors who happen to be beekeepers. They have a successful honey business Sag Harbor Honey and make the freshest tasting honey you'll find on Long island. Their website can be found by clicking here, too.
Using honey when baking is a perfect natural sugar, although this recipe does call for coconut sugar and a touch of maple syrup, really just for texture so if you wanted to, leave out the maple syrup. The coconut sugar adds to the rich, amber color of the muffin itself, and the honey adds a beautiful moistness and flavor. Honey has so many amazing health benefits such as more minerals, vitamins, and can help with allergies. I've made a honey banana snack bread before, and will bring that back to the blog soon, but let's talk about these muffins for a hot minute, shall we? Muffins are just so easy and quick to make, and the limit literally does not exist with flavor combinations. It seemed only fitting to use up the last two ripe bananas and pair with Bob's Red Mill gluten-free all purpose flour and a large helping of Sag Harbor Honey. I usually make my muffins with milk, sans maple syrup, but every now and again I like to tamper with my base recipe, I can't help it! This version yields ultra velvety texture, flavor, and all around deliciousness in each bite. I have a few other flavor profiles coming your way this fall, and I'm ticked with glee about it (yes, I said glee, get over it...)
Make these delicious muffins, enjoy a large cup of coffee, and baske in the sunshine this summer. You deserve it!
