Cinnamon Tahini Muffins

One perk of my job:  I get paid to jump out of airplanes.  Well, I guess sometimes it’s a helicopter.  I’m sorry…even though there are plenty of videos out there set to AC/DC’s Thunderstruck or something that make this kind of thing look totally cool, I hate it.  Something about standing in an open doorway of a MOVING PLANE 2500 feet above the ground…and jumping out of it…WILLINGLY…that’s just unnatural.  I’m also a total wuss.

I made these muffins for the first time as a pre-jump snack.  We have to get up pretty damn early to get out there before the Colorado winds start up, and you know me–I’ve got a freshly packed meal everywhere I go.  I think I got enough flak for being the girl in the corner with my coffee and muffins without people knowing they were both Paleo AND Vegan muffins…but it was hard to notice since they were effing delicious.  Well, I guess I minded–I’m sensitive like that–but they were still totally delicious.

    If I want to use real eggs, would I use 6?

    Also, I agree with the previous comment, tahini, what a great idea!

    Great recipe, though I ended up trying a variation. Only had almond flour in stock, so we used that in stead, also ended up using 6 real eggs. Came out fantastic, fed a ravenous army of fussy kids, nice to find a kid pleaser that isn’t loaded with a ton of sugar.

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. So, would 6 flax eggs be 6 tablespoons of ground flax in 18 tablespoons of water?
    Also, could you perhaps substitute another puree (like pumpkin) for the mashed bananas? Unfortunately I’m allergic :(
    Thanks so much!

      Yes and yes! The banana also helps add some sweetness, so keep in mind if you’d like a sweeter muffin–you can add a couple of tablespoons of honey since pumpkin is ess sweet naturally.
