Whole Wheat Blueberry Banana Bread Muffins

It is a muggy, rainy summer day in Tulsa. After running errands, I decided to get busy in the kitchen since anything outdoors wasn’t going to happen.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Banana Bread Muffins slightly adapted from How Sweet It Is

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 1 cup blueberries

Preheat oven to 350º F. Place muffin cups in muffin tins, or spray tins with non-stick spray.

Mix sugar, applesauce, and egg until creamy and light yellow. Add bananas and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir until completely smooth. Fold in blueberries. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins. Top with course sugar.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until toothpick poked in center muffin comes out clean. *If using mini muffin tins like I did, adjust cooking time to approximately 12 minutes. Yield: 34 mini muffins.

Nutrition Information (per muffin): 51 calories; 0.25 g. fat; 6.3 mg. cholesterol; 37 mg. sodium; 11 g. carbohydrate; 1.2 g. fiber; 0.3 g. protein

Result: Mmmm! These are delicious and I am diggin’ the mini muffins 😉 I am not so much a fan that they are nearly all carbohydrate with no protein or fat, but since they’re so small you can balance the muffin’s carbohydrates with additions to the meal for added protein and fat.

I’m pretty happy with my first attempt at food porn 😉

Happy Saturday,

    Nice pics! I would need to balance out those carbs with natural peanut butter….or a few eggs. Yummy. xxoo

    Sooo delicious looking. I think I’d experiment with gluten free flour if I was to make them 🙂 Think that’d be ok? I love little teeny muffins, cute and portioned 😉

    Where do you find pastry flour. I have looked a few grocery stores and can not find it at any of them. I see all these great recipes on so many blogs and I can not find the flour for them.
