One Bowl Banana Nut Muffins


These healthy muffins are rich in Vitamin E make a great breakfast food. Wheat germ adds to the nutty flavor of the muffin.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 cup low-fat milk
3 tablespoons butter
1 egg
cinnamon sugar (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
For easy clean-up, use the paper muffin/cupcake liners in your muffin pan. To help prevent sticking to paper, use a little cooking spray on each liner as well.

Mix flour, walnuts, wheat germ, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg in large bowl. Stir in bananas, milk, butter and egg. Mix until just blended.

Fill muffin cups with batter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if you like ( I do not use it, and my kids love these muffins anyway).

Bake about 20-22 minutes. Cool, then remove muffins from pan.

Enjoy warm muffins with a cup of herbal tea....yum!
