Another goodness muffins this week :D
I tried to find something great to do with goji berries, other than eating them as snacks or in the smoothies. Thus, goji berries muffins!
I found this great muffin recipe via Tastespotting. In addition of using goji berries, I wanted to use up the hazelnut honey butter that I bought last week.
I tweaked the recipe and got myself Banana Goji Berries Nut Butter Muffins recipe. It's super delicious, and with all the goodness inside them - goji berries, banana, whole meal flour, and hazelnut.
1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar (I used Stevia)
1/2 cup chopped hazelnut
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 cup skimmed milk
5 Tablespoons nut butter (I used organic hazelnut butter with honey, warm in microwave for few seconds)
2 Tablespoons corn syrup (you can use maple syrup, or agave syrup)
2 large banana mashed, left chunky
3/4 cup goji berries
Preheat oven to 190C. Grease muffin tin with Pam and set aside.
In one bowl, combine dry ingredients (flour, salt, cinnamon, Stevia, hazelnut, baking soda, baking powder).
In medium bowl, combine wet ingredients (1 egg, beaten, nut butter, corn syrup, milk)
Add wet to dry and mix well.
Fold in goji berries and banana.
Mix well together by hand.
Scoop into muffin tin.
Bake for 30-35 minutes (check for doneness with toothpick).
