  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups.

  2. Stir together bananas, brown sugar, applesauce, egg, and lemon extract in a large bowl. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, ginger, and baking soda in another bowl.
