Before you start

A blender or a mixer and a food processor will make things easier for this recipe.


  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C/325°F. Place 12 large paper muffin cups in one or more 12 cup muffin pans. Depending on the required amount, you may have to bake in batches.
  2. Put the cashews in a food processor and process a nut butter consistency is reached, about 5 min. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, combine the flour, ground almonds, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites using a mixer until soft peaks are formed. Set aside.
  5. In another bowl, mix together the mashed bananas, vanilla, cashew butter, and honey. Fold in the egg whites using a spatula. Mix in the dry ingredients, then gently fold in the berries.
  6. Using an ice cream scoop, spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  7. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 40 min, until a tooth-pick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Take the pan out of the oven, then put each of the paper lined muffins on a rack to cool down. Serve.
