When I first started blogging, there was a blog called the Clean Eating Club. I loved that web site and was sorry to see it go. I always got so much inspiration there for my eating plan and lifestyle when I was just starting out.
Today’s recipe is adapted from a recipe I found there for banana bread. I would provide a link, but the link doesn’t exist any longer.
My little guy LOVED these, and I have to say I thought they were pretty good myself.
I added a small amount of soy milk for extra protein, but you can add regular milk or almond milk if you don’t do soy.
I also added some flax seed meal for fiber and cut out the salt completely.
Last but not least, I substituted the sugar for honey and cut out all the white flour, using whole wheat pastry flour instead.
These are quick and easy to make, and you could substitute many different types of fruits if you’re not a kiwi fan. Try apples, bananas, berries or pears. (I’m making myself hungry talking about all this fruit!) These are just what you’d expect from a fiber muffin, only better!
