2012-01-02 10.36.28

Inspiration: My mom, who invented this power-house of a snack

Adjectives: soft, melt-in-your-mouth, savoury, rich, super-food laden

Good companions: green tea

Warnings: may leave black sesame remnants in between teeth!


2 cups black sesame, grounded (I use a small coffee bean grinder)
1 cup almond meal (I used the coffee bean grinder once again)
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda

3 extremely ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup agave nectar
3 egg replacers (I use the flax seed + warm water method, but be warned that flax has a strong flavour no matter how little you use)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp vanilla extract


  1. Sift/mix the dry ingredients thoroughly.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients in whichever order you choose.
  3. Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet, but making sure not to overmix (I mixed in the dry ingredients in thirds).
  4. Line muffin tines with approximately 12-16 paper cups. Pour a heaping spoonful of the batter into each paper cup.
  5. Bake the muffins at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for around 15-18 minutes. Fill your empty muffins cups with a bit of water, to prevent ruining the muffin pan.
