Oh yeah, and vegan.
Lately I’ve been going back through all my old favourites and my mind has been boggling at what refined crap I used to eat like it ain’t no thang. Well, ever since I had babies and they started to eat the food I made, I wanted to do better by them. I was afraid of baking with wholemeal flour because I thought it tasted weird, except I was wrong. I also started to think twice about adding sugar, I really just don’t think a kid that’s not even two needs sugary things. Each to their own and all, and I don’t mind the occasional treat or whatever, but… yeah.
I remember thinking my banana chia muffins weren’t so bad, even though I know recipes like that are pretty much just cake. In muffin form. So I decided to change it so I could feel good giving it to my kids, and also eating it myself. Nobody gets fueled properly with white sugar and white flour, and boy I need all the proper energy I can get!
I removed the egg and replaced it with flax meal and water. I don’t even know why. You can either use the flax meal option or add an egg. Whatever you like!
I also freeze these and pop into lunchboxes.
