Today's Muffins: Banana, Yogurt and Walnut

I made some really yummy muffins today, and I wanted to share the recipe. They're moist and de-lish, and they taste just like banana bread, but are made with healthier ingredients. I got it here.

  • 1 1/4 C oatmeal
  • 1/2 C rice flour
  • 1/4 C ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 C plain yogurt
  • 3 medium, ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 C agave syrup
  • 1/3 C grapeseed oil
  • 1/4 C walnut pieces

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2.  In a large bowl, whisk together oatmeal, flour, flaxseed, baking powder, and baking soda.
3.  In a separate bowl, combine eggs, yogurt, bananas, syrup, and oil. Add flour mixture and fold in walnuts.
4.  Divide batter into paper-lined muffin cups. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool on a wire rack.

If you don't have ground flaxseed, GET SOME! It's full of fiber, anti-oxidants, and omega-3s. It also tastes good! I sprinkle it on cereal and oatmeal, bake it into pancakes and muffins, mix it into smoothies and applesauce, and the list goes on! Also, try some Agave Syrup. It's got a nice, light taste, and it's a good natural sweetener. You can find it at the store with the honey.
