I know that this is not the first time I have posted a Banana Nut Muffin recipe. Maybe not even the second time.... BUT how do you not love turning too old to eat bananas into sweet healthy treats. With this recipe I decided to try and go so healthy I would feel good about eating these for breakfast.... no sugar, no butters, no oils. Leave that stuff out and bring on the yummy factor.
Banana Nut Muffins
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup oats
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp flax seed powder + 4 tbsp water
1 cup mashed banana (about 3 bananas)
6 tbsp nut butter (I used a mix of walnut and almond, but any nut butter is fine)
3/4 cup water
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
Directions:Mix flax seed powder and water, keep it aside.
Combine all the dry ingredients and mix well.
In a separate bowl, stir oil and nut butter. Now add the mashed banana, flax seed and water mixture, 3/4 cup water and mix well. Pour the wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix till everything is combined. Add the spices and lightly mix in.
Spoon them into greased muffins tray - regular or mini sized work well.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degree F for 20-25 minutes or till the toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
