My recipe of the week is inspired by The Pioneer Woman. This recipe uses flaxseeds and applesauce instead of oil and butter. The next time I make this recipe I will definately add an oatmeal topping because I found the topping a bit to moist or keep it in the oven for a few more minutes.


1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup spelt light flour

1/4 cup ground flaxseeds

1 cup oats

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

1   organic egg

1 cup sour milk – milk with 1 tsp lemon juice

1 mashed banana

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/4 cup maple syrup


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12 cup muffin tray. In a bowl mix flours, ground flaxseeds, oats, brown sugar, salt, baking soda and baking powder. In another bowl mix egg, sour milk, mashed banana, applesauce and maple syrup. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Add chocolate chips. Scoop into muffin cups and bake for 18-20. Enjoy!
