  • 1 1/2 cups wheat bran
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 large pear, diced
  • 1/2 cup dried figs, chopped

Directions

Prep: 1. Preheat your oven to 375. Grease a muffin tin or use paper liners. 2. Combine milk and vinegar, set aside to sour. 2. Mash banana. Dice pear and figs. Make: 1. Whisk together wheat bran, flour, quinoa, chia seeds, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 2. In a separate bowl whisk together banana, apple sauce, soured milk, eggs, and molasses. Combine with the flour mixture. 3. Fold in pears and figs. 4. Pour mixture into prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Notes

The molasses in these gives them a "darker" flavor, for a "brighter" flavor substitute 1/2 cup brown sugar or agave (agave will make them sweeter too).
