Healthy Banana Nut Muffins

I've made two batches of these this week. They are some of Billy's favorites. He says they taste like cake.

Banana Nut Muffins

6 overripe bananas
1/2 c. olive oil
1/3 c. thawed frozen apple juice concentrate
2 eggs
3 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
4 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
Broken nuts, as many as you want (we use a lot--pecans are our favorite)

Mash bananas, leaving small chunks. Add oil, concentrate, and eggs. Blend well. Mix dry ingredients together. Mix into wet ingredients. Don't over-mix--batter will be lumpy. Fold in nuts.

Fill greased or papered muffin tins full. Bake at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes or till a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Makes 12 jumbo muffins.
