Whole Wheat Banana Mini Muffins

Banana Flaxseed muffins

I must admit I sometimes struggle in the morning with getting both kids up, dressed and fed by the time the school bell rings.  There is a lot going on in the morning and sometimes the last thing I have time to do is whip up breakfast let alone turn on the stove.  This recipe is my go-to breakfast meal for those busy mornings where you are eating breakfast in the car…yes we have those mornings too!

This recipe makes 24 mini banana flax seed muffins. Surprise…I add ground flax seeds for a nutritional boost!  Flax seeds are high in omega 3’s, fiber and improve immunity. You can add ground flax seeds into smoothies, cereals, cookie batter and muffins. Also, these muffins are great because I notice the minute I make anything in a mini version the kids seem to love it! When I made them on a Sunday afternoon to have on hand for the school week they gobbled them up! They were eating them behind my back as I was trying to take a picture for this recipe. Sneaky little guys, right?!? So this photo is what was left from the first dozen.

These mini muffins make a great healthy and portable breakfast for those busy school day mornings. HINT: I make the whole batch of 24 and keep them in the fridge and just heat them in the morning for 10 seconds.

Bernice first started Yummy Tummy Cooking when her son was 2 years old. After being a little disappointed and down right scared at times (meat sticks in a jar…need I say more) with the food selection at the supermarket, she started making her children’s meals at home. Most weekends you can find her in the kitchen, supermarket or local farmers markets. Bernice’s philosophy to what she feeds her family is simple – try to buy local and organic. She has a bachelor’s degree in chemistry; if she has to refer to her degree to decipher the ingredients, she doesn’t buy it. If she can’t read it, they don’t eat it….that simple!
