Whole Wheat Honey Banana Applesauce Muffins

Whole Wheat Honey Banana Applesauce Muffins

Introduction

I've been trying to stay away from white four (all-purpose) so I bought a bag of whole wheat flour. In search of a whole wheat recipe I came across this recipe http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Whole-Whe
at-Honey-Banana-Muffins-115432 and thought it would be perfect. I decided to take this recipe to the next level of health by replacing the oil with applesauce, it worked! These are fluffy and moist and just yummy. For fun I sprinkled some with oats and honey. I recommend sprinkling them with honey because it makes the tops kind of gooey and delicious, but only a drizzle or else it will be really doughy on top.
I used mini muffin tins and made about 65 muffins. But towards the end I just got impatient and filled up three regular sized muffin cups.
I think these are the perfect way to get in some complex carbs and fiber and the wheat germ gives it a great extra health kick!

  • I cut the recipe in half since I didn't need that many muffins, added a little bit more water to make sure they stay moist. They were delicious. - 3/23/12
