Fresh Banana Muffins

This is exactly why these muffins disappear quickly at our house.  One-year-olds are very fast!

I don't know about you, but I have notes jotted down for about three different banana breads.  I've finally made this one so many times that I have an exact ingredient list that is amazing!  Sure, they have sugar in them.  You can play with a natural sugar like honey or syrup.  Next time I make them I'm going to try totally sugarless with added craisins.  The recipe as is tastes really good with 1/4 cup golden raisins in it as well.
Fresh Banana Muffins
Makes 24 muffins

3 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup almond meal
2 cups oatmeal
2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
2 flax eggs (if you are wondering what these are, go to this Huffington Post article)
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 - 1 cup applesauce (add 3/4 and see if the batter needs more liquid before adding the other 1/4)
6 bananas

Preheat oven to 350.  I mix this in my kitchen aid mixer with my cookie beater attachment, but sometimes I use my hand beaters.  Add all ingredients in the bowl, mix until well combined, fill lightly oiled or lined muffin tins.  Cook 15-20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean or with dry crumbs.

*This is also good with 1/2 cup golden raisins.
**If you don't have almond meal, then add another 1 cup of whole wheat flour.


  1. I heart this recipe. Especially the Flax eggs. Lisa Dettman changed my life with that little egg knowledge (and ... all the freakishly scary stories about unhealthy food.) Wow. You're really changing how you cook! All from that book Eat to Live?

  2. You know about flax eggs too!! Yes, from Eat to Live. But then just starting with that book it's been fun to research other healthy food ideas. I don't think I learned about flax eggs in the book... I need to re-read it.


I love to hear your feedback.
