Bananas Muffins

What do people do with old bananas? If you are a baker, you make banana bread or muffins. On Tuesday I went to Berkeley and had my first experience at the Berkeley Bowl. This place is amazing! A whole aisle of bulk food, huge section of teas, the largest fruit and veggie section I have ever seen! So when I bought more bananas than we could eat I figured I could bake!

3 very ripe bananas
1 cup of whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 egg
1/4 cup tablespoons applesauce
1/2 cup chocolate chips
walnuts for topping


  1. Mash bananas in a bowl.
  2. Add all other ingredients and mix well.
  3. Pour into muffins tins
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes if making muffins\ or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean.
  5. ENJOY!!!
You can eat as a snack or a part of breakfast. They are not too sweet so you can enjoy whenever!
