Chai Apple Muffins - IMG_1884


1 finely chopped organic apple (about 1 1/2 C)

1 mashed banana
1/3 C non dairy milk
1 Chai tea bag steeped in 1/3 C hot water
*2 cubes applesauce (about a scant 1/4 C)
1 T organic canola oil
1/3 C organic brown sugar
1/3 C evaporated cane juice (vegan sugar)
2 t vanilla extract

*So that I always have applesauce on hand for low-fat baking, I freeze unsweetened applesauce in ice cube trays, then thaw a few cubes at a time.


1/2 C EACH:  millet flour, quinoa flour, garbanzo bean flour, and brown rice flour
2/3 C oat flour (GF)
1/3 C rolled oats (GF)
2 T ground flax
2 T finely shredded unsweetened coconut
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/8 t clove
1/8 t allspice


Set aside the chopped apple.  Combine the other “wet” ingredients in a bowl or on a large plate that you mash the banana on.  In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients.  Stir the wet ingredients into the dry, and fold in the apples.  Bake in muffin liners at 350 degrees for 22 minutes.  Makes 15.
