Whole Wheat-Banana Muffins

Whole Wheat-Banana Muffins = A very delicious muffin!  I found this recipe on one of my favorite sites, My Recipes, but still did not have high expectations. Too few ingredients, I thought. No sugar? How can a sugarless muffin be good?  Boy was I surprised!  These muffins are not especially attractive (a bit bumpy looking), but the flavor is scrumptious!
