Breakfast Cupcakes

If you're like me, you get bored with the everyday cereal routine.  And when we do eat cereal every morning we go through it like there's no tomorrow.  So occasionally I try and whip up something different.  A favorite at our house is whole wheat banana muffins.  The boys call them Breakfast Cupcakes.  They have a few twists in them that will make your morning routine do flips and the breakfast judges (ie, your kiddos) score you a perfect 10! Hope you enjoy!

1. Preheat your oven to 375.
2.  Mix the following:
     ~1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
     ~1/2 cup white whole wheat flour (if you're not the whole wheat kinda person all propose works too)
     ~1 1/2 tsp baking powder
     ~1/4 tsp cinnamon
     ~1/4 tsp salt
3.  In separate bowl combine the following:
     ~1 tsp vanilla
     ~3 large bananas
     ~2 eggs
    ~3/4 brown sugar
    ~1/3 cup Greek yogurt
    ~3 tbs butter, melted & cooled
4.  Fold banana mixture into flour until combined.
5.  Spoon batter into muffin cups and bake 18 to 20 minutes.
6. Turn onto wire rack and allow to cool.


  1. This looks SO yummy! I can't wait to try this recipe out, thanks for sharing! Miss you!

  2. Thanks Jeana! They're fabulous! If you're into you can add a little wheat germ or flax seed and the kiddos don't even know it! Miss you to. Love keeping up on your house. So much fun.
