Trying to stick with baking some breakfast goodies for the boys to help our mornings go smoother, I tried out these Whole Wheat Banana Muffins I saw on Joy of Baking. I made half the recipe which gave me 6 muffins. Since these are 100% whole wheat flour the banana flavour is more muted. To get the boys excited about them I sprinkled some with some chocolate chips. The first time I made these Hasan loved them. The second time I didn't mash the banana as well and he wasn't happy with mushy parts in his muffins. So next time I will be sure to thoroughly mash the bananas so he has no clue that it's in there.
