Muffin Monday - Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

This week's muffin is (in our humble opinion) one of the best we've baked so far this year! See those overripe bananas in your fruit basket? This is what to do with them. :) Enjoy!

Whole Wheat Banana Muffins
(inspired by this recipe)
makes 12 muffins

2.5 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 c. organic cane sugar (or white sugar)
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. baking soda
1/4 t. sea salt
1 egg
1/2 c. melted butter
1/2 c. buttermilk
2 over-ripe bananas, smashed (about 1 c.)

1. Preheat oven to 375F and grease muffin tin with coconut oil.

2. Measure dry ingredients into a large bowl and whisk together.

3. Whisk egg in a medium bowl; add melted butter, smashed bananas, and buttermilk, mixing well.

4. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened (don't over mix your muffins!); batter will be lumpy.

5. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.

6. Bake 20 - 25 minutes; cool on wire rack.

Bon appetit!

  7. We keep checking in for the newest muffin recipe, but we have made this one over and over. We almost plot and lie in wait for our bananas to get mushy so that we have an excuse to mix up the batter. I never would've dreamed that plain ol' banana would have rocketed to the top of our breakfast cravings, but this recipe is lucious.

  8. Holly, Your comment simply cracks me up! We find ourselves saving bananas to use for this recipe as they truly are one of our favorites so far this year! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment; we appreciate the feedback and are glad to hear you're enjoying our muffin adventure. :) Blessings to you and yours, ~Lisa

  9. How many calories are in one of these?

    1. Hi Rachael, I wish I could tell you! I honestly have not idea on the calorie count of any of my recipes...just not something I've considered as I'm not a calorie counter. Sorry I can't be of help with your question. ~Lisa
