2 large eggs
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1 cup bananas
1 cup buttermilk, (see Ingredient notes)
1 cup wheat bran
1/4 cup canola oil

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Recipe Directions for Banana Bran Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.

  2. Whisk eggs and brown sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Whisk in bananas, buttermilk, wheat bran, oil and vanilla.

  3. Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the dry ingredients; add the wet ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips, if using. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups (they?ll be quite full). Sprinkle with walnuts, if using.
