Healthy Whole Wheat Banana Muffins with Ground Wheat
Posted Jul 01 2011 5:23am
Okay – I don’t put up a lot of recipes, although I cook all the time. In my heart, I’d like to share more of them, because quite honestly – I know you guys would like them!
So, here’s one that you may find delicious. If you remember, I began grinding my own wheat about this time last year. I’ve been remarkable consistent using my wheat mill: ( Here’s the original post in case you missed my foray into wheat grinding!)
This is one of my family’s favorite muffin recipes, but shhhh – don’t tell them how healthy it really is!
Healthy Banana Bread Muffins
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour (freshly ground or a good quality whole-wheat from the store)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed over-ripe bananas (about 2-3 bananas)
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (or 1/4 cup of melted butter if you are not watching you weight or fats)
2 eggs ( or 1 Tbsp. of flaxseed meal mixed with 3 Tbsp. of warm water for one of the eggs)
Mix your dry ingredients together thoroughly. In a separate bowl, mix together the bananas, honey, applesauce and egg or flaxseed mixture. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Mix until completely combined, but don’t beat the mixture to death, or your muffins will be tough and not tender.
Pour into prepared muffin pans and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 12 to 17 minutes. Don’t let them overcook! Remove from pans and cool. Makes 12 good sized muffins.
I hope that you will try these healthy muffins, or use a variation of the recipe by adding blueberries and cinnamon in place of the bananas.
I’d love to hear if you’ve tried making whole wheat anything, and how it turned out!Diane
