banana-nut okara muffins
Combine the following ingredients in a bowl:
1 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
In a second bowl, combine the following ingredients:
6 oz. mashed ripe banana (about one large banana)
8 oz. okara
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 Tablespoon molasses
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Mix wet ingredients vigorously, until thoroughly incorporated. This mixture will be a deep golden color.
Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and stir until just mixed. Add
1 cup chopped walnuts
and fold into the batter.
Fill the cups of a lightly oiled 12-muffin tin with the batter. You should have enough batter to fill each cup to the top. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes.
