Whole Wheat Nutty Banana Muffins (no butter)

At the end of every week I am left with a minimum of three over ripe bananas and this time I decided I would make muffins but healthy muffins. So here is the version with nuts, no butter and no sugar. Whole wheat is always better than Maida ( the bleached refined version of wheat) that is widely consumed. I have added walnuts, almonds and flax seeds to the batter, but you can add what ever you like. Also I have substituted sugar with honey and palm jaggery. Making it a healthier alternative to refined sugar.
