Whole wheat banana muffins

Last time I tried to make banana bread it was a major fail. They were super mushy and not very tasty. So this is round two and the turnout was infinitely better than round one:

2 overripe bananas
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tsp each of: vanilla, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup water
1 egg
Throw all ingredients in the Vitamix in the order listed. Work up to Variable 8 and blend for 30 seconds, pushing down with the tamper. Pour into muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

Taste score: 8/10
Likes: Success! I was wary of any muffin recipe without oil or butter, but this worked well. The muffins turned out fluffy and golden brown. Perfect for a breakfast to go!

Dislikes: Bananas can be boring. I would add more cinnamon and nutmeg next time.

Nutrition score: 10/10
Bananas  are a great source of potassium, vitamin B6, and fiber for about 100 calories! They also help with "elimination problems" if you get my drift.

Sorry but these were AWFUL - chewy, heavy and tasteless. Waste of time, money and effort.
