Emily’s Whole wheat banana muffins:
Mash 3 bananas.
Add 1 egg,
4 tbs melted butter or oil (coconut oil works well),
1/2 cup-1 cup sugar (I use the least amount possible),
1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1 tbs. baking powder.
You can add vanilla or coffee to flavor it too.
Then add 1 1/2 cup flour. I use white whole wheat or regular whole wheat. I also add flax seed, 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup.
Add chocolate chips (1/2 cup to 1 cup).
Stir until mixed, but don’t stir too much. If it is to dry, pour in some milk (almond or regular) or unsweetened applesauce.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
I make these muffins at least twice a week, when my bananas start to get brown.
Emily’s Energy Bites
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup toasted coconut (I used the sweetened kind), toast under the broiler
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup chocolate chips ( I used 1/4 cup whole and 1/4 cup melted)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
Mix all ingredients together, roll into balls, refrigerate till solid. Keep in refrigerator.
Tip to make the recipe a little easier:
Melt 1/4 cup chocolate chips with the peanut butter. It makes it easier to mix.
