Banana Walnut Muffins

The other day my mom took the bananas and put them in the pantry while she was cleaning the kitchen. After getting lost behind the bread, they sat up there for a few days becoming nice and ripe. I figured what better way to put these mushy bananas to use than moist and delicious banana walnut muffins. These are going to be the perfect treat for my train ride tomorrow morning into work!

Recipe yields 10 muffins

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
2 large egg whites
1 large banana, very ripe
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tin with liners to hold the muffins and allow for easy removal.

Combine flour, sugar and baking soda in a small bowl with a fork to mix together well.

In a medium bowl, combine mashed banana, applesauce, vanilla extract and egg whites. 

Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients until mixture is smooth and there are no dry spots. Add the walnuts and spread evenly into mixture.

Spoon the mixture into the liners, filing about 3/4 of the way.

Place in the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes. Test with a toothpick to see if they are ready. Toothpick should come out clean after entered into the middle of the muffin. Remove and allow to cool for 10 minutes.

Keep muffins in a sealed ziploc bag for freshness. Serve & enjoy!
