Making everything for the first time

Banana Muffins

This is based on the banana cake recipe here, just modified to make it more moist and suitable for little cups. I love crunchy cinnamon sugar-topped muffins and I took the opportunity to use it here. It’s very easy to prepare so this is something that you can bake with your kids.

This simple but yummy muffin is appropriate for breakfast, snacks, picnics, children’s parties and the occasional guilty midnight snack.

Recipe afer the jump. Enjoy. 🙂

1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups mashed very ripe bananas (4 large)

1 teaspoons cinnamon powder
2 teaspoons sugar

With a wooden spoon or spatula, stir in mashed bananas, yogurt, and vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients just until combined.

Fill wells of muffin tins a little more than halfway with batter. Combine cinnamon, sugar and nuts in a small bowl. Sprinkle liberally over muffins.

Bake for 20 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Don’t overbake. Transfer to tray and let cook for 10-15 minutes before eating.
