Banana Wheat Germ Muffins Posted by Picasa

A healthy banana muffin: Recipe from Simple Vegetarian Pleasures

11/2 cups flour
1 cup toasted wheat germ
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2-3 bananas)
1/2 cup lowfat milk
1/4 cup canola

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter the tops and insides of a regular-size (1/3 cup) muffin pan. ( or use paper liners)

In a med bowl thoroughly combine flour, wheat germ, walnuts, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt

Beat the eggs in a larger bowl. Beat in the mashed banana, being certain to break up any large lumps. Beat in the milk and oil until smooth. Add the dry mixture to this bowl and stir just until it is evenly moistened. Do not overbeat it.

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan. Bake about 17 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out dry. Cool the muffins on a rack a few minutes before serving. They are better warm, not hot.
