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.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    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!
