Preheat the oven to 200°C lower & upper heat. Prepare 10-12 silicone muffin tins.
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
In a second bowl, crush the bananas until homogeneous. Add the milk, coconut oil and vanilla essence and stir well.
Pour the wet mixture into the dry mix and mix briefly. You don’t want to “over stir” the dough, as you may destroy the air bubbles (created by the reaction of the baking powder with the wet ingredients).
Divide the dough among the muffin tins and bake the muffins for 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out dry. Then let the muffins cool completely.
Meanwhile, make the frosting: mix the Pa’lais Nature with the sugar, the zest and juice of the orange, and the spices. Taste and season to your liking. Let it set in the refrigerator.
Once the muffins are completely cooled off: decorate each muffin with a bit of glaze. Finish with some dark chocolate chips.
You can also use paper muffin tins, but then the muffin dares to stick to the paper. In that case, let the muffins cool off completely before detaching them from the paper, which will help prevent stickyness.
