Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

Updated on June 29, 2014

This delicious recipe for Whole Wheat Banana Muffins came about because of an old recipe that I had for blueberry muffins. I wanted to make the recipe a bit healthier since the original called for butter and white flour. 

I decided to omit the butter and use canola oil instead, plus change the flour to whole wheat. I opted to use bananas, because they are mashed and they give more flavor to the overall muffin. 

These are some fun variations that I would like to try with these muffins and if you try them let me know how you like them!

  1. Add toasted pecans or walnuts
  2. Bake without liners for a crispy outside (use cooking spray)
  3. Add chocolate chips
  4. Substitute another fruit; I'm tempted to try mashed strawberries

Serving Size

  • Dry ingredients:
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 very ripe large bananas, mashed

  3. In a large bowl combine dry ingredients.
  4. In a separate bowl combine wet ingredients.
  5. Fold all ingredients together.
  6. Fill muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes or untill a toothpick comes out clean.

      Pineapple would go real well too for added moistness.

      I used to make banana bread all the time. Now my daughter does all the cooking for us. She makes these regularly and they are a very nice treat! Great recipe Marre!

      I like the healthful options you took in creating these. Changing to whole wheat should increase the flavor too.
