Banana Flax Muffins

18 Jan

Healthy healthy healthy! And, so delicious, too! Are you still working on your new years resolutions? These little babies are sure to keep you on the right track!

These muffins are packed with delicious healthy hearty grains and fruit for a great breakfast or snack. They take pretty common ingredients that I found in the bulk food section at my grocery store, so they literally only cost me pennies! The applesauce and the banana keeps these muffins moist and the flax seeds and wheat germ give it texture and nutrition. Yummy! I brought some over to my nieces and nephews place and they gobbled them up with no realization whatsoever that they were eating healthy food! Joke’s on them!
Banana Flax Muffins
Yield: 12 muffins
Ingredients:
1 cup whole wheat flour (or regular flour)
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
dash of cloves (if you like)
1 cup brown sugar (or you can do half granulated half brown)
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup canola oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ripe bananas, mashed
Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners and set aside. In large bowl combine all dry ingredients, including sugar. In smaller bowl, whisk all wet ingredients and bananas together. Make well in dry ingredients and pour wet ingredients in. Stir slowly and gently until flour mixture is just incorporated into the wet mixture. Scoop muffin batter into muffin tins 3/4 way full. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle of a muffin. Cool 5-10 minutes before removing and eating!
