banana muffins

My Mother raised me and my younger siblings on health food. Our home was all-organic way before organic was cool. So it's thanks to her that I actually like foods made with whole wheat flour and natural sweeteners. Like these Banana Muffins. My family has had this muffin recipe forever, and I can say with all seriousness, they don't taste healthy!

2 ripe bananas, mashed with a fork 1 egg, slightly beaten 1/3 cup oil 2 tablespoons honey 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1-1/2 tablespoons water 1-1/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix mashed bananas with beaten egg, oil, honey, vanilla and water. In another bowl combine dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to wet mixture and stir just until moistened- batter should be lumpy. Fill well-greased or paper-lined muffin tins 2/3 full and bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees.

* Best if enjoyed with pretty flowers and a cup of tea!
