Banana Muffins


This recipe came from Lindsay @Passionate Homemaking, modified a bit (of course). I love it that these muffins are wonderful every time I make them. I actually bought bananas that were on special and froze them just so I'd have them for this recipe (and the occasional smoothie). We eat A LOT of muffins at my house. It is really easy to double the recipe and freeze them for fast breakfasts. Pull a few out, microwave them for about a minute and you have a healthy, filling breakfast for all. Kaelan loves them. But then, she loves all things bready. I'm not sure where she gets that from. *grin*

You need:
1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 mashed bananas
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 egg lightly beaten
1/2 c. melted butter

Topping:
2 tbsp. flour
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. butter
1/4 c. brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 375 and grease 12 muffin cups. Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, beat bananas, sugar, eggs, and melted butter. Stir banana mix with flour mix until moistened. Do not over mix! Spoon batter into muffin cups. Mix topping and sprinkle on top. Bake 18-20 minutes. Enjoy!
