This recipe was originally created to be a healthier version of banana bread. Here is the original recipe. Well, the more I thought about it, the more I realized there was really no purpose of eating these muffins. I put a banana in our smoothie every morning, and we get plenty of whole grains in all of the other foods we eat. So I decided it was time to improve this recipe so we were actually eating it for a purpose. Why not add some flax to it so we can get our daily flax in too? I was getting tired of my original flax muffins and decided it was time to switch things up a bit. James and I both enjoy having baked goods around the house. Muffins are a great morning treat to eat along with my smoothie.
They’re also a great late night snack!
On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me twelve drummers drumming, eleven pipers piping, ten lords a leaping nine ladies dancing, eight maids a milking, seven swans a swimming, six geese a laying, five golden rings, four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves and a Partridge in a pear tree.
Day 12: Cranberry Banana Bread
I always love cranberry recipes cranberry cookies, cranberry bread, etc. This recipe is the perfect medley of cranberry and banana. Along with the apple chia muffins, this recipe is good for breakfast, for the office or for a holiday party.

Day 11: Apple Chia Muffins
I’m a huge fan of muffins and breads because they double as a treat and breakfast! I can justify muffins for breakfast especially when they have apples and chia seeds in them! They pair perfectly with a smoothie or a cup of coffee.
I’m so sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been diligently job hunting, cooking and making Christmas presents. And, being in a new town has brought new Christmas traditions. There is a boat parade, a Christmas parade and so many fun Christmas festivities down here.
So, it’s still super hot down here. However, I am not complaining because as I got sunburned yesterday, everyone in Michigan was wearing sweaters. Although a small piece of me wants to be wearing boots. I am looking forward to the winter months. It will be the first winter with no snow!!
I’m so so excited to share this with you! I have been working for a couple of days to finish this. The farmer’s market was rained out on Wednesday, so I decided to put myself to work! I created a 7 day meal plan! When working I realized James and I eat pretty much the same stuff over and over. So, I am only posting 7 days of recipes while James and I try new recipes to add. (I will never post any recipes until I have tried them myself!)
