Preparation Time

Serves24-36 muffins (depends on the size of your muffin tin cups)

2 cups frozen blueberries (do not allow to thaw)
1/2 Butter add 2tbsp vegetable oil to butter OR 1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups almond milk OR 1 c almond, 1 c whole
1/2 cup honey if you prefer sweeter, use 1-1.5 cups honey
1 tbsp vanilla
3 eggs OR egg substitute (see INTRO)
2/3 cup vanilla whey-protein powder
2 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp xanthan gum
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp clove
1 tbsp baking powder
1 cup whole-wheat flour (course-ground), OR gluten-free baking mix
1/2 cup boiling water
3 bananas cut
1 cup bran flour OR gluten-free baking mix
1 cup instant oats

1. 1.) Pre-heat oven to 350. Set rack to the lower half of the oven. Sift together all flours, baking soda, baking powder, xanthan gum, spices and protein powder.
2.) Dissolve the honey into the hot, melted butter. Allow to cool for a few minutes or until you can put your finger in it without burning yourself.
3.) Whisk the eggs together until uniform, then add butter-honey mixture, vanilla and milk.
4.) In a separate, large mixing bowl add the oats and boiling water, and stir. Quickly mash in bananas. Do not allow it to rest for very long, move on the step 5 ASAP.
5.) Alternately blend in liquids and flour mixture 1 cup at a time. The mixture will be a little thick compared to a standard muffin batter. If you feel it’s too thick (hard to mix or close to wet bread dough), slowly add milk until consistency is right.
6.) Stir in frozen blueberries.
7.) Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. The tops should be a med to deep golden brown. These are a very dense muffin!
