Flax banana nut muffins

A super easy way to use overripe bananas and incorporate a good amount of nutrition to it is to make these banana flax muffins.

You will need:

2 ripe bananas mashed well
1/4 cup of flax seed meal
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
1 egg
3 tbsp of milk
1/2 cup of brown sugar ( or white sugar, adjust according to desired sweetness)
1 tbsp of vanilla extract
1/4 tsp of powdered cinnamon

1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp of baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup of unbleached bread flour
1/2 cup of unbleached whole wheat flour

* To add a little nut flavor, add 1/4 cup of walnuts

1) Mix all the wet ingredients and dry ones separately, and then slowly add the dry ones to the wet ones stirring gently until all the dry ingredients are well incorporated. Finally mix in the walnuts
2) Pour about 1/2 cup of batter to the muffin pans and bake for 25 mins at 350C

    Love how you only have 2 steps. Best kind of recipe. Mine usually involves an extra drinking step though.
