Banana Cinnamon Muffin w/ So Good Almond Milk

I’m one of the minority of Asians who can continue to consume dairy products into my adulthood. I have no issues with ice cream, pizza, or chocolate milk. But that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a good plant-based milk when I taste it.

Australia’s number one non-dairy milk brand So Good is now in the Philippines, and I got sent a huge package containing the whole range of goodies: Almond Original, Almond Unsweetened, Almond Chocolate, and Almond Vanilla as well as their Barista Edition Oat and Barista Edition Almond.

Today I decided to bake with So Good almond unsweetened milk because I had a bunch of bananas going overripe, and my package contained a recipe for Banana Cinnamon Muffins.

Here’s the recipe from So Good.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup So Good Unsweetened Almond milk
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 very ripe medium bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup light olive oil
  • 2 cups wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt

I swapped out brown sugar and used a sucralose sugar substitute, added two more bananas, used butter instead of olive oil, and instead of self-raising flour used all-purpose flour and baking powder. (I also left out the salt.)

PROCEDURE

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit). Prepare 12-hole muffin tin with papers, or oil well.
  2. Combine flour, cinnamon, and salt in one bowl. In another bowl, mix milk, brown sugar, bananas, eggs, and oil.
  3. Add wet ingredients into the center of the dry ingredient bowl and stir together until just moistened. Do not over mix.
  4. Pour batter into muffin tin.
  5. Bake for 18 minutes or until tops are golden and toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean.
  6. Cool in tin for 5 minutes, then transfer muffins out to cool completely on a rack or plate.

The recipe above in its unaltered form is a great vegetarian and non-dairy option for muffins. Unsweetened almond milk also is 98.5% fat free, has 60% less calories than lite dairy milk, and 97% less sugar than lite dairy milk, so it’s great if you want to cut calories from your diet.

It’s great to have such choices available on the Philippine market now — not just for people who are lactose-intolerant, but also for those who want to live a healthier lifestyle.

So Good is available in Rustan’s, SM, Robinson’s, Landmark, Unimart, and online.
