Have you ever baked with white beans? It’s kind of like baking with chickpeas which I guess is more popular. White beans, just as chickpeas, are great for baking. They are higher in protein, lower in calories and have lot of nutrition. Baking whit white beans make the baked good so moist and tender, and the texture is amazing. Dont worry, you won’t feel the taste of beans at all! These cream cheese stuffed muffin cups are really easy to make, taste amazing and its like eating a healthy meal (almost 😉 ). The combination of the tender and sweet muffins with the tangy vegan cream cheese frosting and the crunchy and salty almonds on top is really divine! Since these muffins cups are really healthy and nutritious you can have them both for breakfast, afternoon snack or serve them as a dessert. And the best part? People won’t even suspect they’re eating white beans!

A few tips:

  • Make sure to use really ripe bananas and mash them well
  • Make sure to mix the beans thoroughly, you don’t want any small pieces left
  • Don’t add the cream cheese frosting until the muffins have cooled completely, otherwise it will melt
  • These muffin cups are good to store in the fridge for up to five days
