Banana Nut Muffins

A glance at the over-ripe bananas in the fruit basket assured me that today would be a good day to experiment with a muffin recipe I’ve been formulating in my head over the past few days. A couple mashed bananas later, and here you have it–Banana Nut Muffins. I wasn’t sure there would be any left for a photo shoot after my family discovered them, but thankfully these three muffins escaped. Let’s just say, these muffins were a hit! :)



1 cup mashed ripe banana (about 2 bananas)
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup honey granules
1/4 cup honey
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


In a large bowl, beat the bananas, coconut oil, honey granules, honey, and eggs. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in the chopped walnuts. Line a 12 cup muffin tray with muffin liners, and pour the batter evenly into the cups. Bake at 400 degrees for 13-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes clean. Allow muffins to cool a few minutes before removing from the muffin tin.
