Walnut Winner

The Super Breakfast Bowl Challenge: Friday’s Walnut Winner!

Thanks to all who participated in the Super Breakfast Bowl Challenge! I definitely have a whole slew of new recipes I’m going to be trying out!

Today’s winner is Nour from Practical Nutrition with her recipe for Banana Walnut Flax Muffins! Nour will be the proud new owner of Futter Nut Butters walnut butter and Mollie Katzen’s cookbook, Get Cooking.

Banana Walnut Muffins

No time for breakfast? Make these delicious and healthy muffins ahead of time and grab on your way out. Made with whole wheat, flax seeds, walnuts, canola oil, and bananas, these muffins are an excellent source of many good-for-you foods. Even kids would love it!


    1. 1 1/2 c whole wheat flour

    1. 3/4 c ground flax seeds

    1. 1/4 c sugar

    1. 1 tsp baking soda

    1. 1 egg

    1. 1 tsp vanilla

    1. 1/4 c canola oil

    1. 1/4 c reduced fat milk

    1. 3 ripe bananas, mashed

    1. 1/2 c walnuts


In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients (flour, flax, sugar, and baking soda). In a separate bowl, mix the liquid ingredients (egg, vanilla, oil, milk, and bananas).

Stir the liquids in the dry ingredients. Fold in the walnuts. If the batter is too dry, add more milk. Pour into 12 paper-lined muffin cups.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Thanks to all who took part in this blog challenge!
