Chocolate Grape Nut Muffins

These are REALLY good...nice and moist ...chocolate with a hint of cinnamon.

1 cup wheat flour or Spelt Flour
1/2 cup Barley Flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 cup Sucanat   (or brown sugar)
1 cup Grape Nuts cereal
1/4 cup Ground Flaxseed
2 Tbsp Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 medium to large very ripe bananas, mashed

Mix the applesauce, almond milk, vanilla extract and mashed bananas in one bowl. 

Mix the dry ingredients in another bowl.   

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.  

Pour into muffin pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

I like using the silicone bakeware for my muffins.  The muffins  come out so easily and I don't need to grease the pan.  My favorites are:   Casabella Silicone Standard Muffin PanCasabella Silicone Large Muffin Pan, Casabella Jumbo Muffin Cups.

The OXO Large Scoop  is GREAT for scooping out batter into the muffin pan.  It is MUCH neater than when I used a spoon to scoop the batter into the pan - I no longer get batter all over the muffin pan !!!

But we know that God accepts only those who have faith in Jesus Christ.  No one can please God by simply obeying the Law.  So we put our faith in Christ Jesus, and God accepted us because of our faith.
