Healthy Banana Muffins

Ingredients (Makes 12 Muffins)
Time: 35 minutes

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour(See Suggestions)

  • 1/4 cup oat bran

  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar

  • 2 egg whites

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce (or pumpkin puree)

  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed

  • Directions

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line or lightly spray muffin cups, including top, with cooking spray.

    In a large bowl, sift together flour, oat bran, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

    In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to combine bananas, brown sugar, egg whites, vanilla, and applesauce. Add banana mixture to the flour mixture. Using as few strokes as possible, mix until everything is moistened (lumps are okay). Spoon banana muffin batter into prepared muffin cups, 2/3 full.

    Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from oven and sprinkle muffin tops with ground flaxseed. Serve warm.

    Consider adding 1 cup chopped walnuts for some added crunch!

    There are many types of whole wheat flours that are sweeter and lighter than traditional whole wheat. For example, hard white wheat flour creates similar results as all white but is much better for you. There are other choices, too, like kamut flour, spelt flour, oat flour, and teff flour. These are all healthy choices. So ENJOY!
