Wholesome Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

I bet Elvis would have LOVED these. Full of good stuff but still decadent-tasting.

3-4 large, very ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar, Splenda or equivalent amount of other granulated sweetener
4 egg whites or 2 whole eggs
1/2 cup milk, almond milk or other non-dairy milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

1.5 cups whole wheat flour
1.5 cups wheat germ
1 cup ground flax seed
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

In large bowl, cream together peanut butter, eggs, and sweetener of choice. Whisk in milk, bananas, and vanilla extract. In medium bowl stir together dry ingredients. Dump dry ingredients into wet and stir, just until combined. Spoon batter into muffin cups greased with non-stick spray and bake at 350F for about 18-20 minutes. Makes 14 large muffins.
