Whole wheat flour, mashed banana, and slivered almonds make this banana nut muffin recipe delicious and healthy! Perfect morning snack! Adapted from Curious Cuisiniere.
Preheat oven to 400. Lightly spray a muffin tin with non stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix flours, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt until evenly blended.
Mash 2 cups worth of over ripe bananas. In a medium bowl, combine bananas, milk, and oil until well blended.
Add wet mixture to dry mixture. Stir until moistened.
If using, add almonds or walnuts and mix until just incorporated. Spoon batter into greased muffin tins, filling 3/4 of the way to the top.
In a separate small bowl, mix together topping ingredients. Replace slivered almonds with chopped walnuts if needed. Sprinkle over the top of the batter.
Bake for 15 min, or until a knife inserted into a muffin comes out clean. Let the muffins sit in the pan for 5 additional minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to let cool.
