High fiber Banana Muffins w/ blueberries

Alice Patis | Aug 26, 2005 02:46 PM

Here's my high fiber banana muffins recipe. They're "perfect" for what I like in a high-fiber low-sugar muffin, but I have to put in a disclaimer that I wouldn't necessarily call them “perfect” muffins for jane & joe public.

Pictures below are of the time I made mini-muffins with dried blueberries (in summer I use fresh). I put nuts in my husband’s half of the batch and keep mine nut-free. Sometimes I add chopped 70% dark chocolate instead of blueberries. BTW I buy all the weird ingredients in the recipe at Trader Joe's.

Tonight, I'll be trying the Epicurious recipe for Banana bread that 4chowpups and pumpkin recommended. Will post results.


High-fiber Banana Muffins with Blueberries
Makes 12 regular size muffins (24 mini)

Dry ingredients:
3/4 cup ground flaxseed meal
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup oat bran
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Wet ingredients:
3 very ripe bananas, mashed (1½ cups)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon Stevia
1 egg
1/3 cup canola oil

Add-ins (approximate amounts):
1/2 cup dried wild blueberries (or 1 cup fresh)
1 cup chopped nuts

The following baking temps are for a convection toaster oven; a regular sized oven might need to be set hotter. You could probably use whatever baking directions you’ve used for other muffin recipes.

For mini-muffins: Bake at 350° for 4 minutes, then at 275° for another 4-5 min.

For regular muffins: Bake at 350° convection for 8 minutes, then at 275° for another 8-9 minutes.
