muffins make me happy

Banana Nut Muffins
(adapted from Bake or Break)

1 ¼ c. wheat flour
¾ c. all purpose flour (unbleached)
¼ c. wheat germ
2 t. soda
1 t. salt
¾ to 1 c. raw sugar (depending on sweetness of bananas)
½ t. cinnamon
3 ripe bananas, mashed
½ c. applesauce
¼ c. vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 t. pure vanilla extract
¼ c. milk (omit & add additional oil if non-dairy)
½ c. walnuts (omit if desired)

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.  In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients - beginning with the bananas through the milk.  Add dry ingredients to wet and mix, stirring from the outside of the bowl in.  Add walnuts (or other favorite nut--pecans work well, too).  Mix until incorporated.  Don’t over mix.

Fill your baking cups 2/3 full and bake at 350 degrees in a preheated oven for 18-20 minutes (about 6 minutes longer for large muffins).  Enjoy!  Best warm with a hot cup of tea and a smidgen of butter.

yes.  muffins make me happy, especially when shared with someone! the latest batch featured a portion with chocolate chips.  yum!  be creative!
