Sugar Free Mini Banana Bread Muffins - YUM!

We had 4 very ripe bananas that I didn't want to throw away - so I started thinking about how I could turn it into a yummy recipe.  I also bought a new mini muffin pan about 3 weeks ago and was looking for an excuse to use it!

1.5 cups whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 1/2 cup melted margarine, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 1 cup splenda baking, 4 small-medium overly ripe bananas, 1 large egg, pam spray, cinnamon to sprinkle on top at the end (24 cup mini muffin pan needed too).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray muffin pan with baking spray.  Mash bananas in a medium bowl, add melted butter, egg, baking powder, vanilla, splenda, and baking soda.  Mix until combined (it will be chunky because of the bananas).  Once mixed, add in whole wheat flour and chopped nuts.  Use tablespoon to spoon batter into muffin tin filling each 2/3's to 3/4's full.  Sprinkle tops with cinnamon and bake for 12-13 minutes.  Use toothpick to make sure they are baked all the way through ( toothpick will be be clean if they are done baking).

Serve warm and enjoy! (I can have 2 at a time and plan to freeze the extras and heat up each morning for breakfast, Ryan can obviously have more.)
