Whole Grain Banana Bread “Muffins”
1/3 cup organic butter or Earth Balance
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup sucanat
1 tsp. vanilla
2 organic fresh eggs
1 1/2 cups mushy ripe bananas
1 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease baking pan/cupcake liners with olive oil spray, Earth Balance, or butter. Combine wheat flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon and mix in a bowl. Set aside. In another large bowl, mix butter, honey, water, and sugar. Beat on high for two minutes. Add eggs and lightly beat until just combined. Mix in bananas and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture.
Or, if you are like me, toss all ingredients into your Vitamix. Turn it on and blend until smooth. Although the dough may taste fabulous uncooked and on a wooden spoon – don’t do it! Pour batter into pans at bake at 325 degrees. Bake for 52 minutes if you are using a bread pan and approximately 25 minutes if you are making muffins. Remove pan and place on wire rack. Allow time to cool. Enjoy!
