Truly Sugar Free Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

I am always in search of clean eating recipes for me and my family to consume, the entire purpose of this blog. When I use the phrase clean eating, I refer to unprocessed and totally sugar free without any honey, agave, and especially without artificial sweeteners. When you bake muffins with ripe bananas you do not need to add sugar. Add some cinnamon, and the muffins are sweet enough to eat. The previous banana muffin recipe in my blog not only used brown sugar, but honey as well. The recipe we tried today, truly sugar free, no sweetener what so ever except the bananas themselves.  It was a big hit with the kids, but I can't lay claim to this recipe. I found it online at Hub pages, uploaded by Bob Ewing. His original recipe yielded 12 muffins, not enough for my family, so I doubled the ingredients.

 

 Ingredients:

6 lg. bananas
2 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
2/3 cups melted butter
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
3 cups organic whole wheat flour


Mash bananas. Add cinnamon and slightly beaten eggs. Add melted butter.
Sift dry ingredients together and add to above mixture. Mix until moistened. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. This makes two dozen muffins, which my kids loved as a snack!
