PS. Best Banana Muffins Ever.

(PS : This muffin recipe blog entry is re-posted from last year because it really is that yummy)

Muffins, generally an excuse to eat a big fat cupcake for breakfast.  We’ve tried the healthy recipes for banana bread with yogurt or applesauce instead of butter.  Doesn’t cut it over here. So here is our easy-peasy, somewhat healthful, exceptionally delicious recipe for Banana Muffins or bread if you choose a loaf pan to bake it in.  Please note you can add up to 3/4 cup of things like chocolate chips, pecans, dried fruit etc. but we like ours without.

Ingredients:

  • 3 to 4 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups flour (the 50/50 whole white what blend from Hodgson is our pick)
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Heat oven to 350.  Mash all bananas and then mix in all other ingredients by hand until smooth.

We chose mini-muffins and greased the pan with Spectrum Brand Canola Oil Baking Spray with Flour.  Baked for 12-15 minutes and then eaten rapidly with hot coffee. (Try 45 for a loaf pan and give it the toothpick test)  It was a glourious morning indeed.
