Banana Nut Muffins

Yum! After going SOO long without bread, I was just Dying for something like these!!
Recipe altered from "Original Fast Food, by Simmons."

I replaced the Whole Wheat Flour with 1 C brown rice Flour (I just grind brown rice in my vitamix) and 1 C Spelt Flour (you can buy this at a whole foods, etc.)
Spelt isn't gluten free :( But it tastes like wheat and is A LOT easier on you digestive system than wheat flour is. It's also higher in protein and fiber! Whole Wheat is great, just try to replace it when you can with something that won't be so hard on your system.

1 Orange (or 2/3 C fresh orange juice)
2 Ripe Bananas
3 Tbs Lemon Juice
1/3 C Honey
1/2 C Applesauce
1/2 tsp Vanilla (optional)
1/2 C Chopped Walnuts!! (crucial)
1 C Brown Rice Flour (or white whole wheat flour)
1 C Spelt Flour (or 1 cup white whole wheat flour )
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Allspice Powder
1 Tbs Ground Flaxseed
1/2 C Raisins (optional)

Peel orange. Place in blender with about 1/4 C Water. Put through a mesh strainer into a bowl, taking out the pulp. THen add the bananas, lemon juice, honey and applesauce to blender (or processor). Blend until pureed. Add to orange juice in the bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients to bowl and stir until just combined. Fill muffin tins and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350. They don't puff up a lot, because of the flour, but the family LOVED them!!!!!
