Post is inspired by  A Sweet Pea Chef

Mornings are busy, kids are cranky, parents are tired, but we all want to start our day with a great breakfast.  One that is preferably easy, delicious, full of nutrition.  So here is an Easy Banana Nut Recipe full of goodness.

INGREDIENTS: 

  • 4 ripe bananas (ok to use frozen bananas, thaw and smoosh)
  • 1/3 cup organic melted butter (omega 3 and healthy fats)
  • 3/4 cup organic coconut sugar (antioxidant rich)
  • 1 egg beaten, organic free range please (protein, omega 3, iron, B12, Vit D)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp himalayan salt (antioxidant rich)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (lower glycemic index, extra fiber)
  • 1/2 cup white flour (unbleached)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (protein, omega 3)
  • OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS:  1/3 cup shredded carrots (no one was aware), 1 TBSP flax seed powder for more fiber & omega 3 (again, no one c0uld tell)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F or 173 C
  2. In a large bowl, mix butter into smoothed banans
  3. Mix in sugar, vanilla, and egg
  4. Add the baking soda, salt, and stir.

  8. Pour batter into pan
  9. Sprinkle extra walnuts on top if you wish
  10. Bake 25-30min until golden brown and once a toothpick inserted in the centre of muffins comes out clean.
  11. Allow to cool

Makes 12-15 muffins (depending on your scooping skills)
