Thing a Day 1: Banana Cinnamon Muffins

Banana Cinnamon Whole Wheat MuffinsMy friend Laura asked me to join Thing-A-Day with her–it’s a website where people daily post something they made, for the whole month of February.

Unsurprisingly, I am already behind.  I made these muffins yesterday but being me, I didn’t post until today.  I blame my tardiness, though, on the cabin fever that sent me heading for the hills yesterday (or, the pizza shop last night).

I haven’t yet made anything today.  I planned on sewing, but spent the day reworking syllabi (third time’s the charm? Stupid snow), playing with our neighbor, and wandering aimlessly around the house.  I am making dinner, though, so maybe I’ll claim that as my ‘thing.’

Laura’s has been accidentally deleted.  Oops.

And here’s the recipe for these muffins.

Preheat oven to 375*.

In a bowl, mix 1 1/2 c whole wheat flour, 1 tsp EACH baking powder and soda, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon.

In another, mash up three bananas.  Add an egg, beat in.  Add 1/2 tsp vanilla, about 1/3 c of plain yogurt, 1/2 c brown sugar.  Mix, mix.  Add dry.  If too dry, add a couple tablespoons of milk.  Mix, mix.  Spoon into a greased muffin tin.  I made 10 reasonably-sized muffins, and they took about 18 minutes to bake.
