My new muffin of the week recipe was inspired by a cookbook my old yoga instructor Axel recommended. It’s called The Dao of Harmony Dawn Cooking. It has many wonderful vegetarian recipes. The muffins I chose to make are a basic oatmeal muffin recipe. I added banana and chocolate chips to half the batter and blueberries and lemon juice to the other half of the batter.

1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 buttermilk or milk with 1 tsp lemon juice
3/4 cup safflower oil
1/2 cup honey or agave nectar
2 eggs whisked
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 small banana, mashed
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
2 tsp lemon juice

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line and grease a muffin tray.
In a bowl combine oats and buttermilk and let soak for 15 minutes. Add oil, whisked eggs and honey. Mix each ingredient separately with a wooden spoon.
In another bowl sift whole wheat flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
Add dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix until blended. Now separate the batter into two bowls and add 1 mashed banana and chocolate chips to half the batter. In the other half of the batter add blueberries with lemon juice. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins and bake for 25-30 minutes. Enjoy!
