Whole Wheat Banana Muffins


My cousin gave me this great banana muffin recipe, and this rainy weekend was the perfect time to make them. Fresh bananas, brown sugar and organic whole wheat flour should be enough to motivate the most reluctant baker to break out the spatula. And with only a 20 minute cook time, how could you pass up this perfect breakfast treat. An added bonus is the warm and sweet scent that lingers hours after baking.

Makes about 1 dozen muffins. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

4 to 6 extra ripe bananas
1/4 cup melted margarine
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups organic whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
Dash of brown sugar

Mash the bananas in a bowl. Add all of the remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour batter into muffin cups. Sprinkle brown sugar on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean. *Add walnuts or chocolate as desired.
