Turn a smoothie into a delicious bite-sized snack!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1 cup strawberries, frozen or fresh (about 6 large)
  • 2 heaping tablespoons flax seeds
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large fresh strawberries, finely chopped (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Grease and flour 2 - 24 cup mini muffin pans. (tip: I like to use Baker's Joy non-stick spray with flour.)
  2. Whisk together flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. In a blender, blend wet ingredients and flax seeds until smooth.
  4. With a large spoon or spatula stir 'smoothie' into dry ingredients until everything is well combined being careful not to over mix.
  5. Optional: Fold in chopped fresh strawberries.
  6. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of batter into each muffin cup. Bake at 400°, 12-14 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and sides of muffins are golden brown.
Yield: 48 mini muffins
