Would you like to take something different to work? Or are you stuck for ideas for the kids lunch boxes? Try these muffins instead of bread.
Flaxseeds are a concentrated source of phytoestrogens, and are good for digestion. Apples are a good source of antioxidants, especially vitamin C. They provide a good source of soluble and insoluble fibre, so are also good for healthy digestion.
What you need:
150g ground flax seeds
1 tsp baking powder
½ tbsp cinnamon
2 tbsp raw honey
¼ tsp salt
1 apple, finely chopped
25 ml oil
50ml apple juice
½ tbs vanilla extract
What you do:
Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients and apple in a large mixing bowl.
In a separate small bowl mix the wet ingredients, then add this mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Allow the batter to stand for 5 minutes to thicken.
Spoon mixture into muffin cases.
Bake for 18 – 20 minutes.
Allow to cool and enjoy.
You could also add grated carrot for a variation.
