Knowing that they love prunes as much as we do, we asked our TBF employees to send us their favorite recipes using our pitted organic prunes. Pam, our A/P & A/R Specialist, shared her favorite breakfast and snack recipe. If you have ripe bananas laying around, you’re going to want to make Pam’s Prune Banana Muffins. According to Pam and her taste-testers, these muffins are “delicious, sweet, spicy, moist, and very satisfying.”

Serves: 12 | Prep Time: 10 min | Cook Time: 25 min

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped pitted TBF prunes
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 1-1/2 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg

Directions

Preheat oven 350 degrees F. Prepare muffin pan with paper liners or grease & flour.

In a large bowl, combine wet ingredients: olive oil, egg, mashed bananas & vanilla extract. Beat until smooth.

In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients: sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, & nutmeg. Whisk until blended.

Mix wet & dry ingredients together until smooth.

Fold prunes into the mixture. Once combined, spoon mixture into muffin pan.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Note from Pam: These are wonderful muffins. If desired, add nuts!
