Blueberry Banana Bran Muffins...delicious!

These muffins are my new breakfast obsession!  I love knowing that they are waiting for me when I wake up in the morning.  With oat bran, flaxseed, blueberries and a little hemp milk, they have everything I need to feel great all morning.  Flax and hemp seeds both have lots of Omega-3's, which are great for your heart and brain.  This recipe also calls for bananas, molasses and agave, leaving out the sugar completely.  We like to cut them in half, toast them and add a little Earth Balance.  These muffins are sweet, moist and delicious!   I hope you have a chance to try them out! 


1 heaping cup oat bran
1 cup whole wheat flour or whole grain spelt flour
