This was my muffin recipe from last week which I’ve only had time to post now.(sorry) Apples always remind me of the fall season and changes which happen in our day to day lives.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 cup oats

1/4 cup ground flax seeds

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup milk (almond, organic, soy) with 1 tsp lemon juice

1/2 cup safflower oil

2 organic eggs

1 tsp baking soda

3 mcintosh apples – cubed

DIRECTIONS

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line and spray a 12 cup muffin tray or use silicone liners. In a bowl mix flour, oats, ground flax seeds, baking powder and sea salt. In a separate bowl blend brown sugar, milk with lemon juice, oil, eggs and baking soda. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Mix only until blended. Add in cubed apples and mix once again. Divide the batter evenly into muffin cups. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool in tray for a few minutes and then transfer to cooling rack for another 10 minutes. Enjoy!

I just came across a recipe for flourless banana bread from http://www.youtube.com/toddskitchen. I decided to make the recipe for breakfast this morning with my go to waffle recipe. Everyone was happy to wake up to a delicious breakfast. I decided to make the banana bread into muffins .

INGREDIENTS

3 ripe bananas

2 cups oatmeal

2 large organic eggs

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line and spray  a 12 cup muffin tray or use silicone liners. In a blender start to mix oats and then add the rest of the ingredients. Blend really well. Pour half the batter into muffin cups and then add chocolate chips to the remainder of the batter. Scoop out the other half of the batter into muffin cups. Bake for 25 minutes or until firm to touch. Take muffins out of oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Transfer muffins to a cooling rack for another 10 minutes. Enjoy!

I chose to make carrot muffins this week which are high in beta carotene and vitamin A.  What could be better then adding a vegetable that is sweet and great for your health.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup spelt light flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

2 large organic eggs

1 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or organic milk with 1 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

1/3 cup oil – safflower, coconut – melted

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

2 cups grated carrots

1/2 cup raisins

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line and spray a 12 cup muffin tray or use silicone liners. In a bowl mix flours, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt and cinnamon. In a second bowl blend eggs, milk, maple syrup, oil and vanilla together. Put dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix until blended. Add in grated carrots and raisin into half the batter, so anyone who doesn’t care for raisins won’t have to deal with picking them out. Mix once again. Bake for 25 minutes or until firm to the touch. Take out of oven and let sit in muffin tray for 5 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack for another 10 minutes. Enjoy!

I have to say sometimes making a banana bread is just an easier choice and since yesterday was not the best baking day for me, at least I ended on a good note.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup spelt light flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

1/2 cup greek yogurt

2 large organic eggs

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup oil – safflower or coconut oil – melted

2 ripe bananas – mashed

3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 5″ loaf pan and set aside. In a bowl mix together flours and baking powder. In a separate bowl blend maple syrup, greek yogurt, eggs, vanilla and oil. Add in mashed bananas and mix once again. Slowly mix in dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Add in chocolate chips. Pour batter into loaf pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until firm to touch. Take out of oven and let cool for 15 minutes. Slice the banana bread. Enjoy!
