This is my variation of the many banana muffin recipes I have searched through. Very moist, texture is a little spongey, and the right amount of sweetness. Feel free to be liberal with the amount of bananas you add--you can't go wrong!
- cooking spray
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
- 1⁄2 cup honey
- 2 large bananas, mashed
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup warm water
- Preheat 325. Use cooking spray to lightly grease your muffin pan.
- Mix dry ingredients.
- Mix oil, applesauce, honey, eggs, then, bananas.
- Add liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients gradually while adding warm water occasionally to help moisten the mixture.
- Bake for about 13 minutes.
These are really good. So much better than I had anticipated given the simplicity of the ingredients and how healthy they are.
My kids eat them and that's what matters!
These taste really great for being so healthy. I have to go with four stars, though, because of the sponginess and the fact that I had a hard time telling if they were done. These muffins are so dense I think they looked/felt done before they really were. (I probably baked them for about 17 min.) Thanks for the recipe, though! I'll definitely be making them again. :) UPDATE: The muffins seemed to get less spongey once I let them sit overnight. (Does that make any sense?) Anyway, I'm upping my four-star review to a five. The muffins are now moist and soft, and I love them.
