Everyday Food Zucchini, Banana, and Flaxseed Muffins
This recipe has 12 ingredients. It takes approximately an hour of cooking and cooling time and makes 12 servings. I already had most of the ingredients including the ground flaxseed from previous recipes. I actually prepped this muffins the night before and refrigerated until I baked them in the morning. Make sure not to over mix the batter, just stir until combined or your muffins will be less fluffy. I found that I had more than enough batter for 12 muffins and made three additional muffins. I also found that I needed to turn the pan halfway through the baking time to encourage an even browning, however, that could be due to my disco era oven. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.
My two boys loved this recipe. They ate more than half the muffins for snacks and dinner. I liked that the muffins only have 2 grams of fat, but 5 grams of protein, making them a great snacking option. Recently, I have been trying to bake more with flaxseeds, they are a great source of nutrition. This recipe was a great way to add more flaxseed into my family's diet. Overall, a very family friendly recipe that is healthy and full of flavor.
