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
- 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.

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.
what a great idea. Thanks.
