Banana Chocolate chip muffins 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This is abit of a twist on the tradional banana muffin.
With the added protien from the quinoa and fibre from the oatmeal it makes a great healthy snack that will satisfy you between meals.

This recipe also uses spelt. Spelt is a grain similar to wheat whose origin dates back to approximately 5000 B.C., from the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern region. Italians have been consuming it for a long time under the name of "farro," and Germans have been calling it "dinkle." Making a comeback in the U.S., spelt may be a nutritious alternative for those with wheat allergies. Spelt flour is rich in fiber. Due to its higher water solubility, spelt flour is more easily digested than wheat. Spelt has a higher protein content than those made of wheat.


Ingredients:
1 cup of spelt flour
1/4 cup of bran or flax flakes
1/4 cup of quinoa flakes
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup raw sugar
1tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup milk or almond milk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 ripe bananas - mashed
1/2 cup of chocolate chips


Directions:
Mix all dry ingredients together into a bowl. In a seperated bowl mix all wet ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix, then add chocolate chips and mix.
Spoon into lined muffin tins. Bake for 20 mins at 375 degrees C and enjoy!


Servings: 12


Notes: If you are trying to eliminate sugar then switch the sugar content for applesauce and add 2 tablespoons extra of quinoa flakes. * This is a remake of a recipe that came from my sons elementary school

Recipe
Stuffed Baked Tomatoes and Eggs with Pancetta
Category: Breakfast
Description: Plump, juicy tomatoes encase pancetta, soft-cooked egg and basil pesto. Add a salad and home fries and you have a perfect brunch. This may not be as healthy as some of our usual recipes but I loved how it uses up the tomatoes that always seems to ripen at one time in our garden. I always have a bunch of basil ready to be used at this time of year too.
