Banana, Berry and Walnut Muffins
My son and I had a busy day today! He loves baking so, as the rain continues to fall (you have got to love Ireland!) we decided to bake these muffins.
They are a good source of Omega 3 with the walnuts and the flax seed and make a good snack of breakfast alternative.
325 g Almond flour
100 g Chopped Walnuts
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup of milled flax seed
1 tsp of cinnamon (add more if you like it, I am not a huge fan)
5 ripe bananas
1 cup of strawberries or other seasonal berry, chopped
2 tbsp honey (less if your fruit is very ripe)
1 tsp Vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 190C
Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl
Mash the banana well, use the most ripe bananas you have as they will help sweeten the overall mix.
Place all the remaining wet ingredients in with the bananas and mix well.
Next combine in the dry ingredients. Use a processer if you wish but ensure it is well mixed.
Pour into muffin moulds and bake for 25 minutes or until cooked through.
