The original recipe with the sinful cinnamon crumb topping is found HERE. Here's my version of healthy banana nut muffin recipe:
BANANA NUT MUFFIN RECIPE
*Makes about 12 standard size muffins
- 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
- 1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 Tsp Baking Soda
- 1 Tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 Tsp Salt
- 1/3 Cup Chopped Pecans/Walnuts
- 4 Large Ripe Bananas, Mashed
- 3/4 Cup White Sugar
- 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
- 1 Large Egg, Lightly Beaten
- 1/2 Cup Butter, Melted
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
- 1 Banana, Sliced (Optional, for garnish only)
Preheat oven to 375F. In a large bowl, sift together all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In another bowl, add mashed bananas, white sugar, brown sugar, egg, melted butter and vanilla essence and mix well. Pour banana mixture into the flour mixture, and stir well until combined. Scoop batter into pre-lined/greased standard muffin pan till about 3/4 full. Add the optional slices banana onto the muffin; one slice per muffin.
Bake in preheated oven for about 18-20 minutes. Do the toothpick test (inserting a toothpick into the muffin, and if toothpick comes out clean - muffin is done!) to determine doneness.
Enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea... or breakfast or as a snack!
