Muffins - Banana
Makes 12


1-1/2 cups Whole Wheat or Spelt Flour

1/2 tsp. Nutmeg, ground
Apple Juice, as required

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. if you are going to bake these muffins in a conventional oven; however, these muffins can also be baked in a microwave oven.

Begin the recipe by placing the whole wheat or spelt flour in a mixing bowl.  Place the oatmeal in the container of a blender and run it at high speed until the oatmeal is finely chopped, and add to the mixing bowl.  Add the baking soda and nutmeg and mix well.

Place the peeled bananas and the pitted dates or figs (with stems removed) into the blender container, cover, and blend at high speed until the mixture is smooth.

Set out the muffin pans and cups, or use a silicone rubber muffin pan without the cups.  You can only use the silicone muffin pan is baking in the microwave oven.

Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and mix well.  If the ingredients are too stiff, add a little apple juice, but don't let the muffin dough become runny.  It should be slightly on the stiff side.

Immediately spoon the muffin dough into the muffin cups, filling them about 2/3 full, so that the muffins can rise without overflowing the cups.

Place the muffin pans in the conventional oven and bake for 30-35 minutes. Or, in the microwave oven and bake on "high" for 5 minutes at 1000 watts.

When the muffins are finished baking, remove the pans from the oven and let cool.  (We have found that hot muffins have a tendency to stick to the muffin cups, but once they have cooled to the point where you can comfortably touch them, they will fall out of the muffin pan, and the paper peels off easily.)

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
