This past week my menu plan did not go as planned and I was left with 4 extra bananas that were getting ripe. Of course that could only mean one thing banana bread or muffins. I chose muffins simply because my kids will eat anything that somewhat resembles a cupcake. As I searched for a good banana muffin recipe I came across this one on allrecipes.com. I did not make it exactly as the recipe stated because I am trying to create baked goods with whole wheat flour and less butter and sugar. It was not my plan to share this recipe the first time around because I was not sure how it would turn out. But I have to say they are quite good so here you go.
Nutritional information to come shortly.
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large ripe bananas
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons of melted butter
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat over to 350
Step 1. Combine all dry ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.
Step 2. Mash bananas in another bowl. Then mix in egg, vanilla, sugar, and butter. Blend till smooth.
Step 3. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients. Once all blended fold in the nuts.
Step 4. Put paper liners in muffin pan. Place 1/4 cup of batter into each liner. Bake for around 15 -20 minutes depending on your oven.
