Give these a try, you won’t be disappointed šŸ™‚

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups flour (1/2 brown rice and 1/2 gluten free baking mix – like Bobā€™s Red Mill) If you don’t have brown rice flour, 2 cups of gluten-free mix will do
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup ground flax
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar or stevia in the raw
  • 2 ripe organic bananas, mashed well
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup agave, or honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1/2 cup almond or rice milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (add after mixing wet and dry ingredients together)
  • 1 cup organic blueberries

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease the muffin pan with vegan cooking spray or butter or line with cupcake liners.
  2. In a bowl mash the bananas well. Then add the additional wet ingredients from the apple sauce through vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients from the flour through the sugar and mix well.
  4. Slowly stir together the wet and dry ingredients until well blended. Then add the apple cider vinegar.
  5. Fold in the blueberries
  6. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups about 1/3 of the way full.
  7. Bake 22-25 minutes in preheated oven or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

These muffins are tasty and healthy. A great snack or breakfast to keep around the house, and perfect for sharing with friends. Have a happy Tuesday!
