Moist Banana Muffins for your busy family!
This busy mom spent five minutes throwing these muffins together tonight :) I love recipes that can be prepared in 10 minutes or less and muffins are a favourite of everyone in this busy family!
A great quick breakfast for busy families on the go (and great for lunches too !)
2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups ripe mashed bananas (4 bananas)
4 tablespoons oil
2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners or lightly coat with cooking spray.
(OK I find it makes 7 good size muffins not 12 .)
In a large bowl, whisk the flour with baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In another large bowl, whisk the mashed bananas with the egg until smooth. Whisk in the oil, brown sugar, applesauce and vanilla. Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and whisk until just blended. Do not over mix.
Spoon into the prepared muffin cups, filling them almost full. Bake until the muffins have risen and turned golden brown, 22-25 minutes. Remove to a rack. Can be frozen up to 2 weeks.
