Cooking Tool of the Month – Silicone Bakeware

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I’ve been making muffins like crazy over here using my silicone muffin pans. I created these banana bread muffins with no oil, no refined sugar, with tons of protein and proceeded to eat 4 in one day. They are that good and thankfully when muffins are made with such healthful ingredients, you don’t have to feel guilty for eating four!

Kids and adults alike will gobble this up. They aren’t super sweet, which I prefer in a morning muffin, so if you like a sweet muffin then add more sweetener. As usual feel free to substitute another granulated sweetener (which will make the muffin sweeter overall) and use whatever whole grain flour you have available (may need to adjust liquid measurements).

My friend Nicole at A Dash of Compassion wrote up a great post about healthy vegan baking and what those ingredients look like. Her style of baking is very similar to mine, using whole foods and good quality ingredients. Visit her post to see what kinds of ingredients you will see on this and her blog.


What kind of muffins are your favorite? Do you like your muffin really sweet? How about savory muffins with veggies and herbs?

    These look fantastic!! Can't wait to try them!  What is the brand of your silicon pan? 

  • Pinning these!  I love the nutty tops.  Think brown rice flour would work in place of barley?

      Brown rice is gluten-free, so it’s not usually an exact substitution for a flour that has gluten. Give it a try, but I would add 1 tablespoon arrowroot to help bind.

  • Love banana muffins! Great recipe!
