I have a soft spot for banana muffins, especially when the weather is warm and my bananas ripen extra fast. A few years ago I posted this recipe for whole wheat strawberry banana agave bread. I essentially used the same recipe today to make muffins, and instead of strawberry banana, they were peach banana. This fruit pairing turned out to be very complimentary and super useful for my first harvest of peaches from my Red Baron peach tree.
Preheat oven to 325.
- 1/2 C Agave nectar
- 1/3 C vegetable oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 C mashed extra ripe bananas (about 3 large)
- 1 large or 3 small peaches, diced
- 3/4 C whole wheat flour
- 1/2 C all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- pinch nutmeg
- 1/2 C chopped nuts (I use walnuts)
In a large bowl whisk agave and oil. Stir in bananas, peaches and vanilla. Stir in flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg. Fold in chopped nuts. Pour into a greased muffin pan. Bake 22-25 minutes. Makes a dozen muffins.
