100% Whole Wheat Banana Muffins


Update: Click here to watch the little guy and I make these on video!

I am really proud of this recipe. It is the result of a few experiments after reading Alton Brown’s I’m Just Here For More Food. Of course I didn’t follow all of his advice but following some of his techniques helped me prefect the muffins.

As you can see below, the toddler is a HUGE fan. He even liked all of my test batches!100% Whole Wheat Banana Nut Muffins

  • 1 and ¼ cups (150g) of whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 large overripe banana
  • ½ cup plain non-fat yogurt
  • 1 tbsp honey (21g)
  • 1 tbsp molasses (20g)
  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • < 1 tbsp of quick oats

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

Mix and double sift the whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside

In a medium bowl mash the banana with a fork. Add the egg whites, yogurt, honey, molasses, applesauce and extract. Whisk until well blended and a bit “frothy”.

Mix the sifted flour with the banana egg mixture until just moistened. Don’t over mix!

Spray a 6 muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Evenly distribute the batter in the muffin tin cups. Sprinkle with quick oats. Bake for about 18 minutes.

Update: I made these this morning with whole wheat white flour and they came out great! Even rising a bit more and having a lighter texture.

    Just wanted to let you know that I’m making the whole wheat banana muffins for the 2nd time b/c they were so good the first time. Now I have a “go to” recipe for that overripe banana instead of throwing it out :)
    Loving your site. Thank you!
