Ingredients

  • 2 large egg
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 medium banana
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 cup wheat bran
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour, whole wheat
  • 3/4 cup flour, all-purpose
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  • Whisk eggs and brown sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Smash 2 ripe bananas (about 1 cup).Whisk in bananas, buttermilk, wheat bran, oil and vanilla.
  • 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.
