Clean Eating Whole Wheat Banana Nut MuffinsPosted: August 12, 2010
A great, easy, quick breakfast from Clean Eating Recipes. They were super easy to make and make for a quick go to breakfast. I freeze them individually and take out as needed. They only take about 30 mins to defrost, so they can be taken out and defrost on your ride to work! A healthy, filling breakfast!
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar or sucanat
1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
3 tablespoons canola oil
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans
1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place paper baking cups in 12 regular size (2 1/2-inch) muffin cups. Spray paper baking cups lightly with cooking spray.
Place flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir to combine; set aside.
Place egg, sugar, yogurt, oil, banana and vanilla in a medium bowl. Mix well. Add to flour mixture, stirring until just combined. Stir in nuts and oats. Divide batter among muffin cups.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until browned and toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
