Healthier Banana Blueberry Muffins

I like making things in muffin tins. Sweet muffins, egg muffins, pizza muffins or any other kind of muffin you can think of. Muffins are so easy to grab when you need to run out the door. How about making them a little healthier by using whole wheat flour and adding some oats and flax?

Enjoy your breakfast my friends!


Healthier Banana Blueberry Muffins
12 servings

1 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup large flake oats, ground
1 tablespoon flaxseeds, ground
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 milk
1/4 cup orange juice
2 bananas, mashed
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup blueberries
1/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350F and line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, ground oats, ground flax, baking powder, baking soda and brown sugar. Your family will never know there's oatmeal and flax in here.
In a seperate bowl, combine the oil, milk, orange juice, egg and vanilla with a fork until well combined.
Now, combine the wet and dry ingredients with a wooden spoon, being careful not to over mix.

Finally, stir in the berries and nuts.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Let the muffins cool. I like muffins when they're completely cool, but you can eat them warm if you like them that way.
