Strawberry Banana Muffins

The other day Hazel and I made some muffins. We had some ripe bananas and Hazel decided we needed to add strawberries to them. So we came up with strawberry banana muffins, which I must add were delicious. We adapted the basic muffin recipe from our Better Homes and Garden Cook Book.

  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour (we used white whole wheat because it is what we had)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup oat bran
  • 1/3 cup flax seed meal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3/4 cup nonfat milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 ripe bananas mashed
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries, thawed a bit and sliced in food processor
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients.
  2. In a medium bowl combine egg, milk and oil. 
  3. Add liquid ingredients and banana to the dry ingredients.
  4. Add strawberries and mix well.
  5. Scoop into prepared muffin pan. (Either lined with cupcake liners or greased.)
  6. Bake for 20 minutes and then turn onto rack to cool.
  7. Enjoy!
Hazel decided it was Ducky's birthday and the muffin could be his birthday cake, so we had to put candles in one. Luckily after that she got side tracked. I think she may have liked these more than our blueberry banana muffins we usually make.
