Whole Wheat Banana Muffins
This recipe is a healthier take on my Mom's traditional Banana Bread recipe utilizing whole grains and natural sugars. The great thing is that in muffin form it's also quick and easy! They are good hot right of the oven or cold the next day. If you like banana muffins then these are the way to go!
What You'll Need:
1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce
1 cup of honey
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of sea salt
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 cup pecans, chopped (Note: You can use any nut you like or even omit them.)
2 cups of white whole wheat flour
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Cream bananas, honey, eggs and apple sauce until relatively smooth. (Note: A few banana chunks here and there is not a bad thing.) Add remaining ingredients, except flour and mix well. Stir in flour until just incorporated.
Scoop out into a muffin pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray or has liners and bake from 12-15 minutes until golden brown and muffins stick done.
Makes approximately 24 muffins.
Notes: You can add in a cup of other fruits along with the bananas if you like such as peaches or blueberries. You can also add in a cup of peanut butter for a different twist.

From what I understand it's an albino form of whole wheat. It's really good. It's whole grain, but it's a little softer than the darker whole wheat varieties.
