Marry Me Muffins

17 05 2010
I first met my husband working in the Tokyo office of Salomon Brothers. I was an assistant is his department. One day they had moved around the desks and I found myself seated next to him. I pulled out this homemade, giant-sized banana walnut muffin and offered him half.  Right away he said, “These are good enough I could marry you for them.”  The rest is history. They are still his favorite muffins.

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup white flour

1/2 cup unprocessed bran

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup nuts, chopped

1/4  cup currants

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup date or coconut sugar

3 large bananas

1 egg

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Mix the flours, bran, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Stir in the nuts and currants.

In a food processor, process the bananas, oil, date sugar, and egg together until smooth. Add to the dry ingredients and mix together with a wooden spoon. Put batter into paper lined or oiled muffin tins. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Turn out onto a wire rack and cool.
