 I used whole wheat flour, but you can use all purpose or unbleached flour instead. The recipe is a little different than what I am used to, but the banana did add really good sweetness. Using milk makes them a little softer than normal muffins, so you can use oil instead and they will have a more crumbly consistency.



1 cup mashed banana
One tablespoon flaxseed, mixed well with three tablespoons cold water**
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup soy milk
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup berries (I used raspberry, but blueberries, blackberries or finely chopped strawberries would also work well)

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line or spray 15 muffin cups.
2. In a large bowl, stir together banana, flax mixture, water, and milk or oil. Add flour and mix. Quickly stir in baking soda and powder, then mix gently. Fold in berries. Spoon batter into preared tins.
3. Bake for about 20 minutes or until they test done. Cool slightly, and remove to wire rack.

    *You can use oil in place of the milk. The muffins come out very soft using milk- the oil will make it slightly more crumbly, but it does raise the fat content.

 ** If you are not vegan, you can just use one egg in place of the flax and water.

 That sounds really good! If you use cranberries, I would suggest maybe using half orange juice along with the milk. That way there is some natural sweetness, and orange and cranberry taste wonderful together Smiley

Oooohhh!  Blueberry muffins are my absolute fav!!! I haven't had any since becoming vegan 2.5 years ago!  What a crime.  I have to try these next time I get on one of my crazy baking kicks.

they look really tasty. but I don't understand the flax-seed-part. is it whole or crushed seeds, and should the water-seed-mixture rest for a while to get the "gluey" effect, or can you use it right away? I'm really looking forward to try these...

 You can do it either way. The first time I made them, I just stirred it and let it sit for a moment. The second time, I blended it and then let it sit for 30 minutes until it was goopey.
