Banana Blueberry Muffins

Muffins are supposed to be a healthy, quick breakfast or snack, but store bought ones usually aren’t. Commercially made muffins use cheap ingredients that are high in trans/saturated fat, sugar and cholesterol. This recipe doesn’t use hydrogenated oils or refined sugar, so it’s actually a healthy, quick breakfast or snack. 

Recipe:
1 cup banana, mashed (2 bananas)
1/2 cup blueberries, mashed
1 large egg
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup maple syrup
3 tbsp coconut oil, melted (or extra virgin olive oil)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup walnuts, chopped

Method:
– preheat oven to 190C (375F)
– mash bananas and blueberries together
– add egg, applesauce, maple syrup and oil, whisk together
– add baking powder, baking soda and half the flour, mix
– add the other half of flour and walnuts, mix until just incorporated
– grease 12 muffin tins and fill until almost full
– bake 22 mins
– let cool on a wire rack for 5 mins

Yield: 12 muffins
