Black bean banana muffin (GF)

I’m finally done with four years of studies and now I’m off to New Zealand for my grad trip! So exciting! While I’m sitting at Sydney Airport waiting for my flight, I’ve realised that I haven’t been posting for a long time. I made these black bean banana muffins a couple of weeks ago but have been so busy with moving that I didn’t have a chance to post. Black beans have become one of my favourite ingredients to use. I absolutely love working with it because the cakes turn out so flavourful and moist. These black bean banana muffins topped with my reindeer frosting decorations make the perfect healthier Christmas party dessert!
