Banana Bread Muffins

If there is one thing that makes my heart break, it is to throw away fruit that has gone bad. So when I have a few bananas that are just too ripe to eat, I go for my collection of muffin recipes.

Banana Bread Muffins
Cooking spray
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
2/3 cup unpacked brown sugar
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
2 tsp lemon zest
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp table salt
1/3 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat muffin tins with cooking spray. Blend together oil and brown sugar. Beat in bananas, lemon zest, egg and egg white.

In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Gently stir half the flour mixture into banana mixture; stir in buttermilk and the remaining flour mixture.

Divide batter among muffin tins. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, about 15-16 minutes. Let cool in pans and enjoy!
