Banana Nutmeg Mini-Muffins Recipe

These make great snacks for the kids! It's also an excellent way to use up those over ripe bananas.

Banana Nutmeg Mini-Muffins
from About.com

Ingredients:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup mashed bananas, very ripe
1/3 cup oil

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat miniature muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray or line with paper baking cups.

In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, salt and allspice. Mix well.

Beat the egg in a small bowl. Add the buttermilk, Banana, and oil. Mix well. Add to the dry ingredients. Stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.

Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until light golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Immediately remove muffins from the pan. Serve warm.

Note: I doubled the recipe and filled my tins up to the rim and used five mini-muffin pans with that amount.
