Healthy Banana Muffins

I went on a quest last summer to find recipes that didn't use enriched flour.  I'm not to the point yet that I can eliminate it from my diet,'s not a bad idea to reduce it at least!  I discovered a ton of really disgusting recipes, but....there were a few good ones along the way.  Granted, you aren't gonna be like-oh my gosh, is this a banana nut muffin or a cupcake?  But this is a good one.  Add a little light butter and I really couldn't tell much of a difference on these guys.
