Breakfast for a Week

I love brown bananas. Brown bananas mean I get to bake! As if I needed an excuse. I wanted to make this recipe healthy-ish. It will serve as our breakfast for the next several days, after I slightly altered this recipe from Annie's Eats and threw in some whole wheat flour. I got 12 LARGE muffins out of this. Really, they are on the verge of being jumbo. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

Banana Nut Muffins
Adapted from Annie's Eats

3/4 cup ap flour

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

3 large bananas, mashed

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg

1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
In a bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (first six). In another (larger) bowl mash the bananas and add sugar, egg and melted butter. Mix well. Stir the dry ingredients into this mixture just until incorporated. Finally, stir in the chopped pecans. Spoon batter into muffin cups. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes.

Oh, and i promise to start posting photos one day. I think the 16 month old hid my camera.


  1. i eat a banana every single day, so i never actually HAVE any brown bananas. you have inspired me to buy some extra ones tomorrow at the central market so i can let them go bad and bake next week.

    because yeah, like you, i totally NEED an excuse to bake.

    tristan probably took the camera so he could post pictures of himself with his shirt off for all his lady friends on facebook. watch out for that kid.

  2. oh shit i can put flax seeds in these! yay!
