The M-F Banana Muffins

25Sep08

 

When in doubt, bored, hungry, standing in front of a nearly void pantry except for a bag of flour and sugar… bake banana muffins.

I’m sick of eating oatmeal and raisins, or english muffins with peanut butter and banana for breakfast everyday (forget cereal or yogurt-eating either of these for breakfast, makes me run to the vending machine by 10:30 AM and scratch the plexiglass begging for something, anything that will stave off hunger for 65 cents. Obviously, if I could eat an Egg Mcmuffin or breakfast burrito everyday without consequence I WOULD, but apparently Asian genes expire after high school.

The M-F Banana Muffins

Of course, if you like to reduce the fat content to a near zero, you can substitute applesauce for the vegetable oil. The muffins may turn out more dense, but you sure won’t!

I like a little fat. Just a little.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup All-purpose flour
1/4 tspn of salt
1/2 tspn baking soda
1/8 tspn ground nutmeg
1/2 tspn ground cinnamon
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
Optional: chocolate, bluberries, walnuts

Whisk together and make sure to break apart the clusters of brown sugar

Mash 3 bananas and combine with 1 egg, 1/4 cup of vegetable oil, and 1 tspn of vanilla extract

Pour wet ingredients into dry mixture and combine until MOST of the dry ingredients are incorporated. Do not overmix or you won’t get the nice chunks of banana in your muffin.

Bake for 30 minutes

You can eat ONE. Store the rest in a freezer bag and take one to work daily! Microwave for 20 seconds. Enjoy with a mug of gritty coffee complements of your office kitchen.
