Wholesome Banana Nut Flax Muffins {aka Brain Booster Banana Muffins}

Nov 21, 2011

This is my original healthified banana muffin recipe I posted before, but I tweaked it a bit so I thought I'd repost it. This redux is made with honey instead of sugar. I just entered it into the Chiquita's Ultimate Banana Recipe Contest. {You can view it HERE, along with lots of other yummy recipes. I'll let you know if it makes the top ten, so you can vote!} These muffins are packed with brain-boosting omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and potassium. By using almond milk, you can make it dairy-free also. Makes 12 large muffins.

Banana Nut Flax Muffins {aka Brain Booster Banana Muffins}
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 Tbsp baking powder (aluminum-free)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
2 ripe bananas
3/4 cup almond or dairy milk
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1 large egg

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line muffin tin with paper liners. Mix flour, flaxseed, walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl. In separate bowl, mash bananas; stir in milk, coconut oil, honey, and egg. Add banana mixture to dry ingredients; stir just until moistened. Using an ice-cream scoop, fill muffin cups. Bake about 20 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool for a few minutes; remove to wire rack to cool or serve warm with butter.
