BANANA MUFFINS

Who would have thought that banana muffins could take on the flavor of the Mediterranean?

With barley, olive oil, cardamom, and yogurt, this recipe does! The flavor is slightly tangy, yet sweet, but the addition of barley flour, mixed with wheat flour, gives the texture a delightfully creamy texture in a way that wheat alone doesn’t.

-       Bananas – 2 very ripe

-       Eggs – 2

-       Sugar – ½ cup

-       Olive Oil – ½ cup

Mash bananas, or put in blender. Add next four ingredients. Mix well.

-       Cardamom – 2 teaspoons (Ginger can substitute)
