Banana Nut Muffins


You know the greatest thing about banana nut muffins?  They are good for dessert and breakfast!  My boyfriend’s mom always makes banana nut muffins and I never get time to enjoy them before they are all eaten up; therefore, I did a little research to find a healthy recipe for banana nut muffins!

Ingredients

2 cups whole wheat flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 bananas
1/2 cup skim milk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup walnuts

Directions

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine the whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

2.  In a separate bowl put in the bananas and cut in to small pieces with a fork.  Smash the bananas with your fork so that it is mostly mashed but with some small chunks of bananas.  With the smashed bananas, add in the egg, vanilla, and milk.

3.  Combine the dry ingredients, wet ingredients, and walnuts.  Mix briefly and pour into a nonstick muffin pan (or a muffin pan sprayed with nonstick oil).  If you really like walnuts, add some on top.

4.  Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
