Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

25 Aug

Sometimes in life a girl needs a little therapy. Sometimes it’s in the form of chatting over coffee with your friends, sometimes it’s retail therapy in your favorite store and sometimes therapy can be found in your own oven- I call this baking therapy. I personally think that cooking and baking is good for your soul, so when I’m feeling down and need a pick me up, to the kitchen I go. Eating is also good for the soul as well, in my opinion, so let’s eat well and healthy when we can.

I developed this Whole Wheat Banana Muffin recipe as an adaptation form another recipe that I had tried: Whole Wheat Brown Butter Banana Muffins.
Madeline loves these muffins and I love giving them to her since they are healthy and have little refined sugar in them. She definitely had a hard time waiting for them to come out of the oven!

Whole Wheat Banana Muffins
Yeilds: 12 muffins

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/24 teaspoon nutmeg
2 eggs
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup natural apple sauce
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
1/4 cup melted butter
2 mashed ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Mix all dry ingredients including sugar, add in honey, eggs, vanilla, apple sauce, melted butter, and mashed bananas and mix till blended. Scoop muffin mixture into lined or sprayed muffin pan and bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Serve immediately or store in an air tight container.

Enjoy!
