Banana Molasses Muffins

Title: Banana Molasses Muffins
Categories: Breads, Fruits, Muffins
Yield: 4 Servings

3 Bananas; Ripe, Md
1 Egg; Large, Unbeaten
2/3 c Sugar
2 tb Light Molasses Or Syrup
2 tb Shortening, Melted
2 c Whole Wheat Flour
1 ts Baking Powder
1 ts Baking Soda
1/2 ts Salt
1 c Walnuts; Chopped, Optional

Mash the bananas until no lumps remain. Add the unbeaten egg, mixing
well. Beat in the sugar, molasses and the shortening. (NOTE: The secret
of this recipe is to mix the above ingredients well until very smooth.)
Sift the flour, baking power, soda, and salt together and add to the
liquid mixture. As these are a quick bread, do not beat the dry mixture
into the liquid but rather fold it in only until it is moistened and no
streaks remain. Spoon the mixture into a muffin tin that has been sprayed
with a non-stick coating. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or
until done. Serve warm.
