  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon (4 grams) pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup (240 ml) fresh strawberries(cut into bite sized pieces)
  • 2 1/4 cups (295 grams) all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking sod
  • 1 teaspoon (4 grams) ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 grams) salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners or lightly butter or spray the muffin cups with a vegetable spray. In a small saucepan melt the butter. Let cool to room temperature. In a medium sized bowl whisk together the eggs, vanilla extract and mashed banana. Add the melted butter and stir to combine.  In another large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

Gently fold in the berries, making sure they are coated with flour. (This helps to prevent the berries from sinking during baking.)
