Bananas to the MAX Muffins!

These muffins are awesome to eat and awesome for you! Need to sneak in a bit of fiber and all the other "good stuff" you are supposed to eat? Whip up a batch of these bad boys and everyone in the family will be asking for need to tell them that they are good for them!

BTW these are also very good for you if you are breast feeding :) I guess I could call them milk muffins LOL.

Bananas to the MAX Muffins:

3 ripe bananas- mashed but chunky

2 eggs

1/2 cup of canola oil

1 TBS good vanilla

3/4 Cup granulated sugar

1/2 Cup Oatmeal - processed in the processor

1/2 Flax Seeds- processed in the processor

1/4 Brewers Yeast

1 1/2 Cups All purpose flour

1 Tbs good cinnamon

powdered sugar

Oven 350 degrees

In a med. size bowl combine bananas, eggs, oil and vanilla till fully incorporated. In another med. size bowl mix together all dry ingredients. Combine the wet ingredients into the dry and mix ONLY UNTIL INCORPORATED! You want light muffins not bricks!!!

Spray a muffin pan with non stick spray, fill approx 3/4 of the way up, bake approx 16 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Dust with powdered sugar.


note: Brewers Yeast is an incredible "add in" to any type of baked good ( muffins, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal). With 16 grams of protein per serving and tons of amino acids plus for breastfeeding mommies it is great for milk production. I really like the Lewis Labs brand and I get it at Earth Fare or Whole Foods.

How much yeast? Is it 1/4 cup? Tablespoon? The muffins sound great :)
