Whole Grain Banana Muffins
Yield: 1 dozen muffins
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 18 min
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup quick or old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
5 tablespoons salted butter, melted
1/2 cup fat-free milk
2 large egg whites (or 1 egg, lightly beaten)
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line 12 medium muffin cups with paper baking cups, or spray bottoms only with cooking spray.
2. In large bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder and baking soda; mix well. In separate bowl, combine bananas, butter, milk and egg whites; blend well. Add to dry ingredients all at once, and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened (do not over mix).
3. Divide batter evenly between the 12 muffin cups. Bake 17-19 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool muffins in pan on wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and serve warm.
