Classic Banana Muffins

Classic banana muffins made with whole wheat flour and plain yogurt are a great grab and go breakfast and snack.

It is another Monday and we are dealing with another winter storm.  This time less snow for us but more ice.  I plan to hunker down at home and keep my fingers crossed again that we won't be losing power. 

When they first started talking about another storm and then the potential for a significant amount of ice after the snow I had my freak out moment.  And then I made muffins. 

Muffins are probably a better option than the cookies I made last week for the storm. Although now I am thinking I should pop some of those in the oven too just in case. 

These muffins came together very quickly. They are fairly healthy with half of the flour coming from whole wheat, plain yogurt and oil.  You could cut back on the sugar a bit too if desired but no more than 1/4 cup.

I actually had about 3 yesterday. So much for storm prep!
