Bananowe babeczki (bez glutenu, bez cukru)/Banana cupcakes

Banana cupcakes

Not that many days ago a Boyfriend’s Day has been celebrated in Poland. I need to admit, I am not good when it comes to dates (even our anniversaries were often slipping out of my mind, uuuups!). Fortunately, this year I remembered about Boyfriend’s Day few days prior it. I knew I would not have enough time to prepare a complicated, beautiful cake. So I came up with an idea to make cupcakes and decorate them like mini cakes 😉 I had some bananas, grounded almonds and buckwheat flour. I’ve added few eggs, spices and the experiment turned into quite cool cupcakes 🙂

*If you want you can add few tablespoons of honey to the batter. It depends how much sweet you want it to be. Personally, I haven’t added any additional sweetener. I used very ripe bananas so for us cupcakes were sweet enough 😉
