Someone requested a muffin recipe using flax seeds. I got this one out of
the archives a while back - don't know if it's still there. I've made it
three or four times and it's very good. The recipe is for a loaf, but I
bake it in muffin tins and reduce the cooking time by about half. It was
submitted originally by Corinne Zimmerman.
Banana Loaf (vegan)
This is a modification of a recipe in the Jean Pare "Light" cookbook.
3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbsp. ground flax seed, mixed with 2 Tbsp. water
1/4 cup applesauce
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour (use up to 1 cup whole wheat...half WW and half white
works best...all WW doesn't cook quite right)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
"Cream" applesauce and brown sugar, add flax mixture. Mash bananas and
baking soda together, add to the other mixture. Mix dry ingredients
together. Stir wet and dry to moisten. Use a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan
(nonstick or sprayed with Pam). Cook at 350 (175c) for about an hour
until it passes the toothpick test.
