Posted on Jul 12, 2014 by in Breast Feeding, Crunchy Ideas, Recipes | 0 comments


1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oats
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. ginger
1/4 c. oil (I used oil, melted coconut oil would be excellent)
1/4 c. maple syrup
1 cup applesauce, unsweetened
*1/4 c. brewer’s yeast or nutritional yeast (optional)
*1/4 c. flax seed meal (optional)
*Brewer’s yeast, flaxseed meal and oats are the perfect trifecta for
nursing moms! The first time I made these muffins without the optional
yeast + flaxseed, but they are great either way. Also I did a lot of
research into the difference between brewer’s yeast and nutritional
yeast for this recipe, and found that they both seem to be excellent for
you. I could not locate brewer’s yeast in the small time allotted to me
for shopping before getting back to my sister’s house to help babysit,
so I used nutritional yeast. The main difference is that only brewer’s
yeast contains chromium/selenium, while only nutritional yeast contains
vitamin B12. Definitely do your own research though.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
Whisk wet ingredients in a small bowl. Add wet to dry, stir only until
incorporated. Bake in a sprayed muffin tin for 15 min. Done! Easy vegan
muffins that will satisfy anyone. Delicious with jam.
