What appears under the dome changes a couple times a week but it generally is a muffin, a scone or some quick bread. Muffins are just so easy to make and they tend to stay nice and moist. I am always searching for recipes that use products that fall under the “good for you” category. I believe these muffins utilize ingredients that I can feel good about for my family to eat like whole wheat flour instead of all purpose, canola oil instead of butter or shortening, and maple syrup or honey instead of refined sugar. They make me happy knowing the ingredients are better for my family and my family is happy because they like them.
Believe me, these Whole Wheat Banana Muffins don’t stay under the dome very long!! Try them for your family – and don’t shy away from the White Whole Wheat Flour – they won’t even know it is whole wheat!!!
100% Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup canola or olive oil (I usually use canola oil)
2/3 cup pure maple syrup or honey
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 cups mashed ripe bananas (This is generally 5-7 bananas)
½ cup warm milk
1 cup add-ins if desired (mini chocolate chips, raisins, chopped nuts etc.)
