Yummy Muffin Recipe

1 cup whole spelt flour
1 cup barley flour (or use 1 cup white and 1 cup whole wheat flour in place
of spelt and barley if you prefer)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 ripe bananas, peeled
3 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
½ cup apple juice, plus more as needed
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 zucchini, finely grated (about 1 ½ cups) --> I just blend the zucchini up in the blender separately
½ cup finely chopped or ground walnuts
½ cup raisins (optional, they add a touch of sweetness)

Preheat the oven to 375ยบ. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

Combine flours, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda in a mixing

Place the bananas, blackstrap molasses, apple juice, and apple cider vinegar
in a blender and blend until smooth. Mix the wet and dry ingredients
together, then fold in the zucchini, walnuts, and currants or raisins. Use a
bit more apple juice if needed to wet all the flour.

Divide mixture evenly into the 12 lined muffin cups, and bake for 20
minutes, or until the top springs back to the touch. Remove muffins from the
pan and cool on a wire rack.

* These are SO delicious if I do say so myself(:
