1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar

In a mixing bowl, combine the flours, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine bananas, milk, egg, oil and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 1/3 full. Break each candy bar into 12 pieces; place two pieces in each muffin cup. Top with remaining batter. Chop remaining candy bar pieces, sprinkle over batter. Bake at 400ºF for 15 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 1- 1/2 dozen
