Modified from a recipe in The Amazing Flax Cookbook by Jane Reinhardt-Martin, RD
  • 1-1/2 cup flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour by Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 3/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 whole egg (I use Eggland’s Best)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup smashed bananas (3 medium or 2 large)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp. Non-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  • In large bowl, mix together flour, flaxseed, sugar and baking soda.
  • In separate bowl, mix egg, canola oil, bananas, vanilla, and yogurt.
  • Mix wet into dry ingredients.
  • Fold in walnuts.

Use paper muffin cups or spray the muffin pans with non-stick spray. Bake large muffins 20-25 minutes at 350 degree oven. Bake mini-muffins ~15 minutes at 350 degree oven.

Makes 12 muffins or 30 mini-muffins.


In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.

I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes".   I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book.  I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.

If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me.  If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe.  If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
