Chocolate Banana Nut Muffins – Made with Freshly Milled Flour

| |

Muffins are quite possibly the easiest bread product to make when transitioning to freshly milled flour in your kitchen. Moist, delicious, and hearty, these chocolate banana nut muffins made with freshly milled flour are sure to be a hit in your home!

Why Freshly Milled Flour?

Freshly milled flour contains 40/44 essential nutrients. Packed with fiber, the flour also contains vitamin E and a slew of vitamins and minerals. This makes the bread products more filling and satisfying. Also, freshly milled flour contains the enzyme necessary for digestion of the bread. All in all making it a powerhouse in your home for nutrition. But, don’t think all of this nutrition makes for a bland, dense, tasteless bread product! Products made with freshly milled flour are so much more flavorful than their store bought counterparts.

What you will need to makes these muffins:

  1. Freshly milled flour. You can use any variety of wheat and even some gluten free grains will work for this recipe. I’ve used buckwheat and they turn out great. You can also use store bought flour if you want.
  2. Cocoa powder.
  3. Salt.
  4. Baking soda.
  5. Baking powder.
  6. Egg.
  7. Vanilla Extract.
  8. Banana.
  9. Milk. May use dairy free milk if you wish.
  10. Walnuts.
  11. Olive oil. May use any liquid oil you wish.
  12. Honey. May use maple syrup instead.
  13. Optional: 1/4 cup of Millet. Lends a delightful crunch to the muffin.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and millet if using. Mix well.

In a separate bowl, combine milk, oil, honey, egg, mashed banana, and vanilla extract. Mix well.

Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix well.

Prepare a 12 cup muffin tin.

Using a large spoon or cookie scoop, scoop the batter into the muffin cups.

Bake for 15 minutes.

Turn onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

    Definitely a keeper. I used fresh milled Einkorn, so I cut back a tad on the liquid. Also, I swapped out a 1/4 cup of the oil and used 1/4 c unsweetened applesauce. This particular time I included walnuts, but I have used millet in past recipes, which I also liked. It had just the right amount of chocolate and the banana kept them very moist. I have a housebound relative I cannot wait to share them with. Thank you, Mary, great job!!
