My muffin this week incorporates more fibre into our diets with ground flax seeds.

Here is  a list of some foods that are high fibre.

  1. Flax seeds
  2. Chia seeds
  3. Apples
  4. Pears
  5. Broccoli
  6. Brussel Sprouts
  7. Carrots
  8. Spinach
  9. Whole Grains
  10. Quinoa

INGREDIENTS

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup spelt light flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 cup ground flax seeds

2 ripe bananas mashed

1/2 cup safflower oil

3/4 cup pure maple syrup

1/4 cup plain greek yogurt

1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

2 large organic eggs lightly beaten

1/2 – 3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line and spray a 12 cup muffin tray or use the silicone liners. In a bowl mix both flours, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt and ground flax seeds. In a separate bowl blend together mashed bananas, safflower oil, pure maple syrup, greek yogurt, unsweetened vanilla almond milk and eggs. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix only until blended. Add chocolate chips to the batter. I only  added half the chocolate chips to the batter and kept the other half plain. Scoop batter into muffin cups. Bake for 25 minutes and then take out of oven and let them rest for 5 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack for another 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!
