Wholemeal Muffins

You can put anything you like in these muffins (fruit works best). Take the generic muffin mix as a base and work from there. For the below I made date/walnut in one, and apple/banana for the others.

For the generic muffin mix you'll need:
3.5 cups Wholemeal Flour
1/2 cup LSA Mix (or linseed meal)
3 Tablespoons Chia Seed
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon molasses
2 cups milk
2 eggs
250ml natural yoghurt

For Date and Walnut -
3 large handfuls of dates roughly chopped, and soaked in boiling water
2 handfuls of walnuts roughly chopped

For the apple and banana -
1 Apple sliced into cubes
2 Banana (sliced/mashed) - save some slices to place on top

To do this:
1. Combine the flour, LSA mix, chia seed and cinnamon in a large bowl, and form a hole in the centre.
2. Whisk the eggs, milk, yoghurt and molasses in a bowl and pour into the centre of dry ingredients.
3a. Add apple and banana
3b. Add dates (including water) and walnuts
4. Mix until just combined
5. Spoon mix into muffin tray (the quantity above makes 12 medium sized muffins)
6. Top each muffin with a slice of banana or piece of walnut, and dust lightly with cinnamon
7. Bake in a pre-heated oven (170deg celsius) approx 25-30mins (less for fan forced), test using a knife - when it comes out clean these guys are done!

Enjoy with a fresh espresso coffee. These keep well in the freezer/fridge, and are great microwaved to serve hot.
