Anyway, I tried a new banana muffin recipe and we all liked it quite well. I fiddled with the original a bit, so here's my incarnation.
Banana Banana Muffins
makes 12 muffins
1/4 c butter1/4 c unsweetened applesauce
1/4 c whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
5 bananas, very ripe
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 c sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
Place the peeled bananas in a large bowl and beat them well with an electric mixer. The riper the bananas and the more you beat them, the more tender your muffins will be. There will still be some lumps, however.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Add the butter, applesauce, and eggs to the banana and mix well.
Add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and stir JUST until the batter is thoroughly combined.
Pour the batter into greased muffin cups - mine just about filled the 12 cup pan
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes on a rack in the pan; then remove and cool completely.
Delicious with Barney Butter!
