One of our most favorite treats in this house is Banana Muffins. There's not one of us that does not just love them. For some reason this last week, the bunch of bananas I bought was overlooked and so I had a whole uneaten bunch getting a bit ripe. So I whipped up a double batch of our favorite banana muffins. We have breakfast and snacks for the next few days and maybe, just maybe, a few might make it to the freezer to be enjoyed later.
Here's our recipe for our most favorite Banana Muffins adapted from a Banana Bread recipe in the book, The Omega Diet.
Banana Muffins
1/3 cup canola oil
2 large eggs
1/4 cup low-fat yogurt
1 cup mashed ripe banana
1 t. vanilla
1 cup all purpose white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2. t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray muffin pans with cooking spray. Beat oil, eggs, yogurt, banana and vanilla by hand until creamy. Mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and add to wet ingredients. Stir until combined. Spoon into muffin pans and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until done.
Oh, and I'm sure it's rather anti-Omega Diet friendly but I added chocolate chips to the second round of muffins. Oh so yummy!
