We have had a lot of company around for breakfast lately and these muffins have been a big hit. They are a little lighter than your average banana bread.
Adapted from Heart Smart by Bonnie Stern , makes one dozen muffins or one loaf
3 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup plain yogurt or sour cream
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg or 2 egg whites
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly oil a loaf pan or line a muffin pan with paper liners.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the bananas, yogurt, baking soda, egg, sugar, oil and vanilla. Mix well. Add the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix just until combined.
Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake 50 to 60 minutes for a loaf or 20 minutes for muffins, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
