Perfect as an afternoon snack or fiber-full breakfast, these muffins are so good your pubes will fall out. Hot from the oven with a schmear of Earth Balance butter...AMAZING. Plus, they're sweetened with maple syrup, molasses, and bananas...not sugar! EVEN MORE AMAZING.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, combine:
1 cup soy milk
1/2 cup canola oil (My friend Breanna says applesauce is a great oil replacer. Give it a shot!)
2 tbs molasses
2 tbs maple syrup (The real stuff is best of course, but expensive. Use what you have.)
2 smooshed bananas
Mix by hand until combined, then add:
1 cup cooked wheat berries
1 cup oats
1 1/4 cup wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
Stir just until combined, being careful not to overmix (unless you want cute little hockey pucks). The batter will be quite thick. Spoon it into a greased muffin tin, filling each almost to the top. Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
And just for funsies, here are some awesome variations...some more decadent than others:
- Add stuff. Nuts, dates, raisins, dried cherries or apricots, coconut, chocolate chips, or any combination of various yummies
- Top with icing. Stir together 1 cup powdered sugar and 1-2 tsp maple syrup for a quick frosting to drizzle over the top. Burn off your sugar high by dancing around the kitchen.
