Directions

Muffins
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease a muffin pan (for 12 muffins). Add lime or lemon juice to the soy, rice or almond milk; set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the flours, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, combine mashed bananas and oil. Mix in milk.
Add the liquid ingredients to dry and mix – don’t over mix. Fold in the blueberries and walnuts. Spoon the batter in to the muffin pan – muffin cups will be full.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Remove muffins from pan after a few minutes and cool on a rack.
Fruit Compote
In a large bowl or saucepan combine all of the dried fruit and add enough boiled or hot water to over. Soak for 10 minutes.
Place fruit, 1 1/2 cups of the soaking liquid, lemon zest and the lemon juice in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer the mixture for 10 to 20 minutes or until the fruit becomes tender and most of the water has evaporated.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
