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
-or-
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.
