Banana Pecan Muffins
IntroductionSimple banana muffin recipe Simple banana muffin recipe
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp Cinnamon
1/3 cup, unpacked Brown Sugar
1/2 cup, mashed Banana
2 tbsp salted Butter, melted
1 oz fat free Greek yogurt
1 large Egg
3 fl oz Milk, 1%
1/3 cup Pecan halves
Toasting the pecans is not essential, but it does enhance their flavour. You can use chocolate chips instead of (or as well as) the nuts, but it will change the nutritional values. Since nuts and chocolate are both calorie bombs, I prefer to use them sparingly.
Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in medium mixing bowl. Stir in pecans.
In a second medium mixing bowl whisk together the brown sugar, mashed banana, butter, yogurt, egg and milk. Pour into dry ingredients, and stir gently with a rubber spatula just until combined.
Divide the batter evenly into 10 muffin cups (I use a 3 Tbsp scoop).
Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until they test done. Cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing to wire rack to finish cooling.
Serving Size: Makes 10 small muffins.
Number of Servings: 10
