I hate cooking. That’s where this healthy eating becomes a challenge for me. I love eating fresh, healthy food but I have a habit of being lazy and getting take-away or something very simple and quick to make.
I should have probably chosen a better recipe to begin with, but I tried this one anyway.
All mixed together, spooned into a muffin tray and baked at 180 C for 15 mins.
I like this recipe because it contains no eggs, flour, butter or added sugar. The flaxseeds and chia seeds provide healthy unsaturated fats including omega-3, lots of antioxidants, and fibre, and the oats of course contribute to the high-fibre in these muffins.
Unfortunately, they could have been a little more palatable. They were not exactly dry, because the apples softened it a bit, but it fell apart pretty easily and probably could have been just a little sweeter. Nevermind, I’ll tweak it a bit and try it again another day. I’m not the best cook but I haven’t given up just yet, and I want to give it another go sometime.
Using proper applesauce instead of a mashed apple probably would have made the whole thing a little more moist and sweeter, and maybe some more banana? I’m also considering making a chia gel (by soaking the chia seeds in water) before adding them to the mix to moisten it up and hold it together better?
I feel like this recipe might be better for making little bite-sized balls or squares.
