a dozen muffins

When I noticed the overripe bananas in the fruit bowl, I decided to try a recipe I'd found for vegan banana bread. The original recipe is here, but of course, I tweaked it to my own tastes and for the amount I wanted, so here's what I did:

2 ripe bananas
4 tsp vegetable oil
1 1/3 c whole wheat flour
3 Tbsp sugar
1/3 tsp salt
1/3 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla

Combine dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mash together bananas and oil. Combine wet and dry ingredients until smooth. For muffins, bake at 350 degrees F for 12-14 minutes. Yields about a dozen muffins.

I also added an impromptu mixture of plain oatmeal (uncooked), sunflower seeds, and brown sugar to the top of some of the muffins before baking. Yum! The original recipe called for nuts, which I would've added, but this was a spontaneous baking venture and there were none in the pantry.

They are very delicious--I'll definitely keep this one for the recipe box!
