Ingredients

    3/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
    3 eggs, large
    1 1/4 c. milk, 1%
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    1/2 c. honey
    3 medium bananas, ripe and mashed
    1/2 c. brown sugar, packed

    1 c. all purpose flour
    1 c. whole wheat flour
    1/2 c. soy flour
    1/2 c. wheat germ
    3 Tbs. flax seed
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. baking soda
    2 1/2 tsp. baking powder

    2 cups blueberries (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Oil muffin tins or line with paper liners.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the first set of ingredients: applesauce, eggs, milk, vanilla, honey, and brown sugar. Stir in mashed bananas.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the second set of ingredients: all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, soy flour, wheat germ, flax seed, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

Add flour mixture one cup at a time to the wet ingredients, whisking until incorporated before adding more flour mix. If adding any additional ingredients (two cups of blueberries or one cup of mini-chocolate chips), stir them in now.

Fill muffin cups with batter (I like to use an ice cream scoop with a thumb lever for this) and bake for 20 minutes. If you added frozen blueberries, add three to four minutes to this cook time.

Remove from oven and allow muffins to cool for ten minutes before removing them from the tin. (I freeze these in baggies, then warm each for 30 seconds on a paper towel in the microwave for a quick breakfast.)
