Delicious Muffins

Yesterday afternoon I made some banana cocoa muffins. I like making muffins because they’re so easy to make, quick to bake, & nice to have for a quick (& healthy) dessert during the week.

1/2 C plus 2 tbsp soymilk (or rice milk)
2 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
1 C barley flour
1 C oat flour (or ground oats--I grind quick-cooking whole oats in a grinder)
1/4 C sugar
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 C cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 C banana, mashed (about 2 medium bananas)
1/4 C pure maple syrup
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp oil (I use vegetable)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine milk & flaxseed meal. Stir then set aside. In a separate large bowl, combine flours, sugar, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, & sift in cocoa powder, baking powder, & baking soda. Stir until well combined. Into the flax/milk mixture, add banana, maple syrup, vanilla & oil & stir well. Add wet mix to dry mix & stir until combined. Line a muffin tin w/muffin liners & spoon mixture into liners. Bake 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
