The boys and I were in the kitchen today coming up with a yummy new muffin recipe. It’s a twist on their favourite banana muffins with added protein and omega 3.
1 cup steel cut oats
1 cup chia seeds
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/4 cup hemp hearts
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
3 large bananas, mashed
1 cup coconut milk (or your milk of choice)
2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1. Blend together dry ingredients in one bowl.
2. Blend together wet ingredients in a separate bowl, then add them to dry ingredinets and stir until blended but be careful to not over stir.
3. Spoon into muffin tin and bake at 375F for 12-15 minutes for mini muffins and 22-25 minutes for standard muffins.
Serve with a smoothie or glass of refreshing milk of your choice.
Until next time…stay healthy!
