Flaxseed meal was on sale at the grocery store this week which inspired me to get in the kitchen and bake up something delicious 😋 I started gathering up ingredients somewhat haphazardly and ended up with mini banana nut muffins with chocolate chips!
These are perfect for a little snack, dessert, or have a few for breakfast with your morning coffee. Only 2 tbsp s of flaxseed meal provide 3 grams of protein and 2430 mug of omega 3s (great for hair, skin and nails!)
Mini Banana Nut Muffins with Chocolate Chips, recipe makes 24 mini muffins:
- Preheat oven to 350 F
- 1 banana
- 3/4 cup of oats
- 1/3 cup flaxseed meal
- 1/4 cup of milk (I used flax milk to stick with the theme)
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup of nuts (I used pecans and walnuts)
- 1/4 cup of sugar or substitute
- 2 tbsp of coconut oil
- Chocolate chips to taste
Food process the oats and nuts. In a large mixing bowl, mash up the banana with the back of a fork (or put in food processor), combine all ingredients. I waited until the end to add the chocolate chips so that I could gauge how much to add without it taking over the batter.
I sprinkled coconut flakes over top to finish them. Enjoy these protein-packed little treats!
