My muffin of the week is a banana muffin topped with an icing glaze. Just adding a little extra something makes it just a little more special!!

INGREDIENTS

1 cup wholewheat flour

1 cup spelt light flour

1/4 cup milled flaxseeds

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp sea salt

1 tsp baking soda

3 mashed bananas

1/2 cup organic milk with 1 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 cup safflower oil

1 large organic egg

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup cane sugar

1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1 cup Icing sugar  mixed with 2tbsp water to top off muffins.

DIRECTIONS

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line and spray a 12 cup muffin tray or use silicone muffin liners. In a bowl mix together mashed bananas, milk with lemon juice and baking soda and set aside. In a separate bowl mix both flours, milled flax seeds, baking powder and sea salt. In another bowl beat oil, egg, vanilla and both sugars. Stir in banana mixture and then add dry ingredients. Finally mix in semi sweet chocolate chips and scoop batter into muffin cups. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack. While muffins are cooling mix together in a small bowl icing sugar with water. Once muffins are completely cool take a spoon and drizzle icing sugar on top of the muffins. Enjoy!

This muffin recipe is courtesy of Paula Deen. I love the flavour of coffee in baking, so when I found this recipe i decided i had to give it a try. I did change some of the ingredients like the flour and reducing the amount of sugar and oil.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup spelt light flour

1 tsp baking soda

pinch of salt

1/4 cup oil

4 mashed ripe bananas

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 1/2 tbsp strong coffee

DIRECTIONS

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line and spray a 12 cup muffin tray or use silicone muffin cups. In a bowl mix oil and mashed bananas. Add the sugar, egg, coffee and vanilla. Mix until combined and then add in baking soda and salt and mix once again. Combine the flour into the mixture and scoop into muffin tray. Slice a piece of banana on top of each muffin. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let stand and then transfer onto a cooling rack. Enjoy!
