Mali’s Mighty Muffins

Mali’s Mighty Muffins

(Makes 15 muffins)

Dry ingredients:

• ½ cup stone-ground whole wheat flour

• ¼ cup oat bran

• ¼ cup soya flour

• ¼ cup flaxseed powder

• ¼ cup wheat germ

• ¼ cup stone-ground sorghum meal

• 1/3 cup wheat bran

• 1 ½ tsp baking powder

• 1 ½ tsp baking soda (bicarb)

• 1 tsp cinnamon

• ½ tsp mixed spice

• Pinch salt

• ¼ cup stevia for baking (could use splenda or other sweetener to taste)

Wet ingredients:

• 4 bananas

• 200ml applesauce

• 6 tbsp buttermilk, yogurt or sour milk (I used sour milk)

• 2 eggs • 2 tsp vanilla

Add-ins:

• ¼ cup mixed seeds

• ¼ cup dried peaches, chopped

• 50g dried dates

• ¼ cup chopped peanuts

  1. Mix dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl (I like to mix with a balloon whisk to get rid of lumps – too lazy to sift!)
  2. Place wet ingredients in a food processor and blend till smooth.
  3. Mix wet and dry ingredients until well combined.
  4. Fold in your chosen add-ins (feel free to get creative – I just listed the ones that I used) and mix until evenly distributed.
  5. Bake in sprayed muffin tins 180/350 degrees (Gas 4) for about 15-20 minutes (or until skewer comes out clean).
