Blueberry Banana Muffins with Flaxseed





My boyfriend is leaving for a fishing trip tomorrow with a couple of his friends. I thought these muffins would be the perfect thing to send along with them on their trip! An easy on the go breakfast to grab while they are heading out the door. If the batter is any indicator, these muffins are delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Whole-Wheat Flour
  • 3/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup ground Flax Seed
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

  • 1/3 cup Light-Brown Sugar, packed
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 Ripe Bananas
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Blueberries

Recipe

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners (or grease pan if you are not using liners)
  • In a bowl, whisk together flours, flaxseed, baking soda and salt
  • In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars with a mixer until light and fluffy
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition
