Muffins sweet with banana and honey (add choc chip or blueberries)

It’s Easter Sunday which is reason enough to make muffins.

Heat the over to 375 while you prep.

Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl:

  • 2.5 cups cups whole wheat flour
  • 1tsp baking soda
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1 heaping tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of salt

In another bowl, whisk together

  • 1-2 large overripe bananas (I used 1.5 because that is what I had) – Mash them first then add the ingredients below
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup applesauce (one snack pack is perfect)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract (Costco has great stuff)
  • 1/2 tsp orange extract (optional – I had it on hand)

Add the wet to the dry and add:

  • 2 cups blueberries (or chocolate chips, or nuts etc.)

Mix until just combined – I always use a wooden spoon. Over-mixing will result in dense tough muffins – I did some reading 🙂

Being that it’s Easter, aka another chocolate holiday, I divided the batter in half and used 1 cup of blueberries and 1 cup (or so – just measuring by dumping in) of dark chocolate chips.

It smells great in here and my husband and I have tried them both. He gave an impressive reaction considering I bake muffins a lot! He said they are on the favorite list. I attribute this to the lots of cinnamon, extra flavor or whole wheat and sweetness from honey and bananas – not to mention that you cannot break off a piece without loads of blueberries or chocolatey goodness.  Enjoy!
