Banana/Flaxseed Muffins

What you need: 

1/2 cup (86 g) flaxseed
3/4 cup (102 g) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (100 g) sugar
2 teaspoon Rumford baking powder (no aluminum) **
1 tablespoon lecithin granules
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (60 g) English walnut pieces, chopped
5/8 cup (153 g) soy milk, unsweetened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup (225 g) mashed ripe bananas

What you do: 

1) Grind the flaxseeds.
2) Premix the dry ingredients.
3) Premix the wet ingredients.
4) Quickly, mix the wet with the dry ingredients. Use only enough strokes to wet the batter (12..18).
5) Quickly, spoon batter into muffin cups.
6) Bake muffins at 350°F for 30 minutes (preheated oven).
** Its important to use Rumford or other calcium phosphate baking powder (especially when using non calcium fortified soymilk). The high calcium content of the baking powder assists in forming the muffins supporting structure.

These were pretty darn tasty! It made 8 muffins for me and I was pleasantly surprised to realize they didn' t use any oil. My flaxseed mixture was about half ground/ half full (it was what I had in the cupboard already for some odd reason and I was too lazy to finish blending it) and it worked out perfectly, with whole flax throughout the muffins. Thanks for the easy and yummy recipe! 


These are (or, um, were) amazing!  They lasted an entire four hours.  The only problem is that the recipe could have been slightly larger; I ended up with 12 mini muffins.  I will definitely be making a double batch next time--tonight!


Goof proof in my case  ;) I was making this recipe by memory and for some strange reason I added 3/4 cup flaxseed meal to the dry, realizing my mistake only after mixing it all together (whoops!) . So I blenderized three thawed bananas with 1/3 cup soy milk, and 1 tsp oil, and mixed with the dry. I didnt have lecithin either but this recipe worked out fantastic! I didnt have walnut so I added raspberries to mine - MMMmmmm. Ill definitely be making these when the flax/banana mood hits me in the future ^^ Thanks  ;D


Great recipe! Didn't use lecithin either, but it didn't seem to matter. I blended the wet ingredients first to make it very smooth. Used Disaronna liquer instead of vanilla extract because I was out!
