    I searched around for an easy, yummy muffin recipe and after making a few different ones, I combined/invented a little one of my own.

    They are yummy considering there is no sugar added and super easy to make.

    so, I thought I'd share.

    1 egg
    1 c. skim milk
    1/2 c. vegetable oil
    1/4 c. maple syrup or honey
    1 c. mashed banana
    2 c. whole wheat flour
    3 tsp. baking powder
    1/4 tsp. nutmeg
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1/4 cup flax seed (you can do more. I do 1/2 cup sometimes)

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Beat egg, then add with milk, oil, maple syrup, and banana. Mix the rest of the ingredients until just moistened (batter should be lumpy). bake 20-25 minutes. Makes about 10 in the big muffin tins.



    Enjoy! and if anyone has any recipes lemme know. I like muffins because I bake a bunch every few weeks and then freeze some. These freeze great. Can be reheated in microwave for like 20 seconds.

    What is the nutritional value of flax seed? Like calorie content

    think oat flour would work instead of whole wheat?

    Thanks :bigthumb:


    Banana Flaxseed Muffins
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Ingredients:
    1/2 cup flax seed - ground it via coffee bean grinder or blender... or just buy it from Walmart this way.
    4 bananas, mashed
    1/4 cup olive oil (or vegetable oil )
    1/2 cup splenda
    2 eggs
    1 egg white
    4 scoops Banana Mass Meal (feel free to use vanilla or unflavored whey)
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 cup whole flax seeds
    splash of vanilla extract
    1/8 cup water

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350-degrees and lightly grease your muffin pan (I used Pam and it worked very well).

    In a large mixing bowl, beat together bananas, oil, Splenda and egg whites.

    In a separate bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients. Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan. Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean (this might vary b/c my oven runs hot).

    Recipe makes ~17 muffins.

    Each muffin contains ~ 7g fat/12 carbs (3g fiber)/6g protein = 132 cals

    Other options would be to add raisins, dates, walnuts, oats, use oat-flour instead of protein, etc.

    I think this would be something good to eat with your breakfast... good fats! 1g poly, 3g mono, 1g saturated

    Also, I would've done whey instead of Mass Meal, but I don't have any vanilla or unflavored right now. I think these things taste awesome, already ate 3 today..
