Banana and Apple Muffins

There always seems to be an abundance of ripe bananas in our house and Dominic is currently going through a Granny Smith apple phase. It seemed natural for me to combine both fruits into a bread. In all my years of baking, I had never put bananas and apples together into a bread until about a month ago. When you make this for your kids, they'll be none the wiser that they are eating TWO fruits at the same time. It will be our little "secret!"


1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup peeled and shredded tart apple (like a Granny Smith)
1 cup mashed bananas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place paper liners into a 12-cup muffin tin. Set aside. In large bowl, put all ingredients together in the order shown and mix well with large spoon. Distribute batter evenly and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes and then remove to wire rack.
