I don't know about you, but I have notes jotted down for about three different banana breads. I've finally made this one so many times that I have an exact ingredient list that is amazing! Sure, they have sugar in them. You can play with a natural sugar like honey or syrup. Next time I make them I'm going to try totally sugarless with added craisins. The recipe as is tastes really good with 1/4 cup golden raisins in it as well.
Makes 24 muffins
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup almond meal
2 cups oatmeal
2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
2 flax eggs (if you are wondering what these are, go to this Huffington Post article)
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 - 1 cup applesauce (add 3/4 and see if the batter needs more liquid before adding the other 1/4)
Preheat oven to 350. I mix this in my kitchen aid mixer with my cookie beater attachment, but sometimes I use my hand beaters. Add all ingredients in the bowl, mix until well combined, fill lightly oiled or lined muffin tins. Cook 15-20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean or with dry crumbs.
*This is also good with 1/2 cup golden raisins.
**If you don't have almond meal, then add another 1 cup of whole wheat flour.
