Good morning everyone!
In our family, we enjoy having lots of fresh fruit on hand. For a while, my dad and I were eating bananas like crazy, so we stocked up on them. Unfortunately , we didn't get to all of them in time and they began to brown. 
I decided to use them up this morning and make banana muffins for my dad's birthday.

Banana Muffins
(adapted from Chef in Training)

1 cup whole-wheat flour (I recommend King Arthur)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup packed, light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
3 tbsp. canola oil
2 large, ripe bananas (peeled and mashed- about 1 1/4 cups)
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (optional)
1/3 cup crushed walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners, and lightly spray with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
Set aside.
In a large bowl mix together oil, sugars, egg, vanilla, and mashed bananas until smooth.
Add flour mixture to banana mixture and  stir until just combined.
If you decided to add blueberries: Fold blueberries into batter using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon.
Evenly distribute batter between the muffin cups, filling about 2/3 of the way full.

If you decide to add the crushed walnuts: sprinkle about 1/2 tsp on top of the batter before baking.
Bake for 13-16 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool for about 5 minutes before serving to prevent burning the roof of your mouth!
Hope you enjoy! 
This recipe makes about 1 dozen muffins.
