Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

My mom used to make these for us instead of Banana bread. They are great for school lunches. Kids love them and they are very healthy.

1/2C Whole Wheat Flour

1/4C Wheat Germ

1/4 C Sugar

2 1/2t Baking Powder

1/4t Baking Soda

1/4t Cinnamon (I love cinnamon so I add a whole teaspoon)

3/4t Salt

1 Beaten Egg

3/4C Milk

1/3C Oil or Unsweetened Applesauce

about 1 1/2 large Mashed Bananas (or whatever you have)

Preheat oven to 400° and grease muffin pan or use liners. Stir together all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. In a different bowl, combine egg, milk, oil, and banana. Add liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just until moist. Do not overmix. Fill each muffin about 2/3 full and bake for 20 minutes. They get really dark, but they are not burnt. Makes about 12 muffins.
