Banana Chocolate chip muffins 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This is abit of a twist on the tradional banana muffin.
With the added protien from the quinoa and fibre from the oatmeal it makes a great healthy snack that will satisfy you between meals.

This recipe also uses spelt. Spelt is a grain similar to wheat whose origin dates back to approximately 5000 B.C., from the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern region. Italians have been consuming it for a long time under the name of "farro," and Germans have been calling it "dinkle." Making a comeback in the U.S., spelt may be a nutritious alternative for those with wheat allergies. Spelt flour is rich in fiber. Due to its higher water solubility, spelt flour is more easily digested than wheat. Spelt has a higher protein content than those made of wheat.


Ingredients:
1 cup of spelt flour
1/4 cup of bran or flax flakes
1/4 cup of quinoa flakes
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup raw sugar
1tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup milk or almond milk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 ripe bananas - mashed
1/2 cup of chocolate chips


Directions:
Mix all dry ingredients together into a bowl. In a seperated bowl mix all wet ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix, then add chocolate chips and mix.
Spoon into lined muffin tins. Bake for 20 mins at 375 degrees C and enjoy!


Servings: 12


Notes: If you are trying to eliminate sugar then switch the sugar content for applesauce and add 2 tablespoons extra of quinoa flakes. * This is a remake of a recipe that came from my sons elementary school

Recipe
Tropical Lemon Cranberry Coconut Chia Bars
Category: Desserts
Description: Remember the early 90's and the ch-ch-ch chia pets? The popular decorative planters were, in fact, sprouted chia seeds. Chia (Salvia hispanica) is an ancient grain that was used as a staple food by early Mayans and Aztecs, who found benefit in its high energy production, easy transportation, and easy crop maintenance. It was also used within many medicinal applications. Today, Chia has been adopted by the public as a nutrient dense dietary "super food." These tiny seeds contain high concentrations of essential fatty acids, protein, dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and can easily be incorporated into any diet for an extra boost of nutrition.
Chia typically contains 30-35% oils and is high in Omega-3 and Omega-6, with each tablespoon providing approximately 2.5-3 g of Omega 3.
Fiber content of 30-40% per serving, with a high ratio of soluble fiber. This type of fiber allows a slower conversionof carbohydrates to glucose, assisting with those suffering with sugar-related illness.
These essential fatty acids and high amounts of soluble fiber, make Chia very beneficial for cholesterol management and cardiovascular health.
Promotes bowel regularity, while soothing inflammatory bowel issues.
They are classified as a high protein food, offering a complete protein (amino acid) content higher than most other grains.
They contain a high antioxidant content, providing a mix of bioflavonoids and quercentin, with the average ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value per tablespoon being 960-1000.
