Culinary Thursday: Whole Wheat(ish) Banana Muffins.

Ready for another culinary Thursday wif me, AttieCattie? Here we go! For your whole wheat(ish) banana muffins you will need:

- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1tsp baking soda
- 1tsp salt
- 1/2tsp baking powder
- 1/2tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2tsp ground nutmeg
(or for those two you can just substitute 1tsp pumpkin pie spice, which is what we did)
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1tbsp vanilla extract
- 4 medium or 3 large bananas, verreh ripe

Got everyfing? Good! Away we go!

Put all the wet stuffs and the sugar in one bowl. Put all the rest of the dry stuffs in a second bowl. Make sure you sniff the wet bowl after you add the vanilla - I always do, it is a great smell.

Put your nanas into a third bowl.

Smash the nanas up, and mix what's in the other bowls.

Mmmmm... You are ready to incorporate!

Put the wet mixture and the mashed nanas into the dry ingredient bowl.

See how good it looks all stirred together?

It should come out to be a well-mixed but pretteh lumpy batter. (The lumps are the nanas!)

Grab your 1/4 measuring cup, and use it to make batter scooping easy! We find that wifout it, we gets batter drips all over the place and it is a little bit hard to keep the size of the muffins the same.

So fill up your muffins now! We like to use these pretteh colored paper liners, but you can also just use cooking spray directly in the muffin pan if you happens to be out of pretteh papers.

They comes out looking something like this.

We even gots a baby loaf out of it. Isn't that cute?

Mmmm, i loves sitting near warm muffins. And they smells so good!

Come here, muffin. You is mine.

Me and my mommeh likes them best wif some butter while still warm. Nom, nom, nom, enjoy!
