From Bon Appitit, although this muffin is so simple and basic, it is pretty tasty and deserves to be posted.

Very good I made almost exactly as written, subbing 1/2cup of the flour for whole wheat. Thank you for an easy nutritious, yummy muffin.

First I must say that these are excellent. Now I'll tell you what I did. I used 1 c unbleached flour and 1/2 a cup of whole wheat flour, Splenda for the sugar, since I just had 2 bananas I added some apple sauce, skim milk, 1/2 the ask for oil and 3/4 tsp of banana extract as I was short on them. I got beautiful, light textured, yummy muffins. Great recipe!
