 I made these banana muffins a couple of weeks ago and they were a huge hit in my house and my office. This recipe can be made into muffins or bread.

TIP - Whole grain flours are not as moist as overly processed bleached white flour, so adding Greek yogurt to the mixture helps make baked goods moist and delicious. The original recipe called for 1/2 cup of oil or butter which I changed to 1/4 cup melted butter and 1/2 cup Greek yogurt.

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup oat flour
1/2 cup oats
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

3 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
5-6 bananas, mashed
1 cup coconut sugar (or 1/2 cup Truvia or 1 cup brown sugar)
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
1/4 cup honey

1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease muffin cups or use paper liners.

In a large bowl, combine flours, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Make a well in center of flour mixture and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients.  Add egg mixture to flour mixture.  Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy).  Spoon into muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees 25-30 minutes.

I hope your friends and family enjoy them as much as mine did.

I saw this on Facebook the other day and loved it -
"You are what you eat, so your food should not be fast, cheap, easy and fake."
Pretty much sums it up. Remember to try to eat more of the foods that God made and less of the junk that man made. Your body will thank you for it.

Blessings to you all,
