Hello everyone!

In my new efforts to eat healthfully, I am wanting to make some bread and muffins.

Does anyone have a healthful recipe for banana nut bread, bran muffins, (and granola-well something that I can make with my rolled outs that I just bought.)

I would really appreciate it!!
TIA!


ETA:
should this go here or in nutritional eating?

Banana Bread

1 cup sugar
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
3 ripe bananas
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or whole wheat all purpose flour)
1/4 cup almond meal
2 tablespoons flax meal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.
Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and
fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk,
cinnamon, and nutmeg.
In another bowl, mix together the flour, almond meal, flax meal,
baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until
combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears.
Stir in nuts.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes,
until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside
to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto
rack and cool completely before slicing.
Enjoy!!

Apple Granola Crisp

2 large apples (I use granny smith), peeled and remove seeds - cut
into wedges
1 cup frozen blueberries
3/4 cup mixed fruit muesli or granola
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon butter, melted
vanilla yogurt to serve (optional)

Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Lay apple
wedges on baking tray and top with blueberries. Sprinkle muesli
(granola) over, then drizzle with maple syrup and butter. Bake for 15
minutes, or until tops are golden and fruit tender. Serve apple warm
with vanilla yogurt for breakfast. (Or vanilla ice cream for desert.)

Makes 2 servings

We have these in our freezer at all times!
Blueberry muffins
1 egg
3/4 C. Yogurt
2 tablespoons oil
1/4 C. honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

Mix together the egg, yogurt, oil, honey, and salt. Stir well. Stir in the baking soda. Mix in the blueberries. Add in the flour and mix well. grease an 8 cup muffin pan. divide batter among the 8 cups. bake for about 30 min. at 350.

Sorry for the delayed response!

You can get it at Trader Joes and other specialty stores. But in case you don't see it, just use a total of 2 Cups wheat flour. I originally substituted part of the flour for almond meal because it makes the bread a lot moister.

Also make sure to store all of your nut and seed meals in the fridge or freezer to preserve the life. The oils go rancid otherwise.
