Banana and Lime Muffins

Today the sky is blue with a few soft clouds, the wind is blustering, swirling yellow and orange Autumn leaves around, and the air is fresh - full of life. Multi-colored fallen leaves carpet the ground outside, and it was such a lovely morning, I was inspired to experiment in the kitchen. The result is these zesty delicious muffins, and I'm happy to say I think they turned out perfect! :-) Makes 14-18 muffins, depending on the size of your muffin trays.


2 cups of all purpose flour

3/4 cup pancake waffle mix

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1 TBSP fresh lime zest n lemon zest

1/2 cup cranberries

1/2 cup carob chips (optional)

1/2 cup flax seeds

1/2 cup toasted wheat germ

1 banana

3/4 cup safflower oil

1 cup maple syrup

water as needed to make a medium runny dough


Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Mix all dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.

Blend the banana, oil and maple syrup til smooth, and add to the dry ingredients. Mix with water til you get a good consistency. Add into oiled muffin trays, and bake for approx 30 mins or til dark golden. To test if its done, press your finger tip lightly on the top and if it springs back when you release then its ready. Serve cool.
