Banana muffins make for a great breakfast or snack. The warm notes of cinnamon and nutmeg seem to be fall flavors, and they really come through in this recipe. You can also take one piece of fruit per meal from Downer, so your bananas could be free.1 1/2 C All-Purpose Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 C Sugar
1/2 C Vegetable Oil
2 Eggs
1 3/4 teaspoon Vanilla
2 Bananas, Pureed

1. Mix the dry ingredients together.
2. Add the vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla and bananas. Stir until mixed well.
3. Portion into lined muffin tins and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. You can test them by inserting a toothpick into the center of the muffin. When it comes out clean, they are done.

These muffins are especially good when topped with cream cheese icing and chopped walnuts.
