Bright Day Banana Muffins

What a great way to end the week. These muffins are so tasty.  I promised my students that I would make muffins from scratch so here is what I did.  This recipe came from an old Pillsbury cookbook.  My students loved it.  Hope that you love it too.  Try them they are  so easy and healthy.

Bright Day Banana Muffins

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  •  1/2 cup sugar
  •   2 teaspoons baking powder
  •  1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  •  1/2 cup (1 medium) mashed ripe banana
  •  1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup oil
  •  1 egg, slightly beaten
  • Topping
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoons butter melted                                                           

Heat oven to 400F.  Grease bottoms of 12 muffin cups or line with paper baking cups.  Combine all dry ingredients; stir in remaining muffin ingredients until dry particles are moistened.  Fill 2/3 full.

Bake at 400F. for 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown.  Immediately remove from pan.  In small bowl, combine ¼ cup sugar and cinnamon.  Brush tops of hot muffins with melted  butterand dip in sugar-cinnamon mixture.  Serve warm.

To brush the tops of the muffins I used a Le Creuset pastry brush with a silicone brush.  I LOVE it.  It will withstand high heat and can go directly into the dishwasher.  It is perfect.

About nutrition:  These muffins have 210 calories, 3 g protein and 2g fiber.  Better than most.  Freeze these babies and just pull them out and microwave for 30 seconds.  Pair with a cold glass of milk and you have the perfect breakfast.

Happy Cooking,

    Banana muffins are the best kind and this recipe gave it a whole new twist. I love the sugary topping. This recipe was a total success!! 🙂

    I learned that exact measurements must be used or else the recipe will turn out to be a disaster.

    A quicker way to do last step. I use 2 Pyrex ramekins. I melt butter in one (wax paper on top of course) and cinnamon/sugar in the other. Simply hold muffin from the bottom. Dip in butter, dip in cinnamon/sugar, done. Dip, dip, done. Dip, dip, done. You get it. No brush to clean or extra step of brushing it on, etc. 💞I do with 3 grandkids, 2 – 5yr olds and 1 – 4yr old. I try to keep it simple.
