Super Food Banana Muffin

Whole Grain Banana Muffin

I love when I have the opportunity to add super foods to a recipe. This is an amazing recipe to make for the kids as an after-school snack. It even makes a great breakfast with a scrambled egg or yogurt before school. These muffins are filled with wholesome ingredients, hemp for extra protein, amino acids, omega 3 & 6 and lots of vitamins.   I have also added  turmeric which has a compound called curcumin that has tremendous medicinal benefits and  powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Feel free to double the amount of turmeric if you are a fan for a bigger boost!  These  yummy muffins pack only about 170 calories each.

Makes 18 muffins

1 1/2 cups of oat flour (or rolled oats ground in blender)
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour – or any whole wheat
1 1/2 cups almond milk + 1 cup of dates – blended together in blender
