I have been messing with this recipe for over a year and made it so many different ways. By the time I got the picture taken the muffin was squished a bit but it is such a great traveling snack I had to write about it.
I use this recipe to use up anything healthy I have laying around. I have made them with pumpkin, squash, apple butter, marmalade, …. I wanted to share the basic recipe. It started as a cut out from a newspaper but it doesn’t have the author.
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon (or more)
½ tsp nutmeg (optional)
½ tsp salt
¼ oil and ¼ water mixed
½ cup sugar
1 cup fruit or vegetable mush (pumpkin, squash, carrot, apple… whatever)
1 tbsp ground flax seed that has sat in 3 tbsps water for a few minutes
2-3 tsp vanilla
½ cup chocolate chips
Mix first 6 ingredients then add next 5 and mix until blended. Last add chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 18-20 min or sometimes a bit more depending on how wet the mixture is. Bake until toothpick comes out clean.
This makes a perfect breakfast or snack food. Fiber, protein (in the whole wheat), vegetables. One of these and a piece of fruit does great for breakfast. Low calorie and long lasting.
