Banana Coconut Oat Bran Muffins

I was hanging around my house in the crazy heat today, feeling like my brain was fried. I just wanted to go to sleep.

So I got myself up and into the kitchen, threw the window wide open (just hoping it would bring a cool breeze), and baked some muffins. They smell amazing so if they don't get eaten NOW, they'll be part of our break the fast meal after Yom Kippur!

This recipe came about because I didn't have much sifted flour left on hand, and I had a LOT of mushy bananas (note to self: stop buying too many bananas!)

Banana Coconut Oat Bran Muffins

6 overripe bananas, mashed well
2/3 c. sugar
1/2 c. oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 T. ground flaxseed
1.5 - 2 c. water + 1 tsp vinegar (or whey from kefir cheese making, or you can use half water/half orange juice to give it an interesting extra flavor)

combine well.

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup wheat bran (finished off my stash)
1.5 cups oat bran 3/4 c. shredded coconut                                                                                     
1/2 tsp salt
 2 tsp baking powder
 Mix well

This makes 12 generous muffins.
Pour batter into muffin tin lined with paper cups. Bake at 350 F/175  C for 25-30 min
