Ingredients You’ll Need
- Whole wheat pastry flour – I love baking with whole wheat pastry flour as it has all the nutritional benefits of whole grain flour while making these muffins light and fluffy. I highly recommend using this, but if you don’t have any on hand you could use white whole wheat flour or regular all-purpose flour
- Baking soda – acts as a leavening agent to help these muffins rise
- Bananas – makes these muffins moist and adds additional sweetness
- Eggs – adds protein and gives these muffins their structure and height
- Honey – sweetens the muffins without using any refined sugar, but you could also use maple syrup or even regular sugar
- Coconut oil – for additional moisture and fluffiness! Feel free to sub with another type of oil if you prefer or even butter
- Greek yogurt – this helps to reduce the amount of oil we need to use and helps keep the muffins moist. You could also use applesauce or mashed banana as well
- Milk – I used almond milk, but any type of milk will work in this recipe
- Warm flavors – a delicious combination of cinnamon and vanilla extract
- Rolled oats – optional topping for a little extra nutrition
How to Make Banana Breakfast Muffins
- Mix ingredients. In a large bowl, whisk together the whole wheat pastry flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, then set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together the eggs, honey, mashed bananas, Greek yogurt, milk, melted coconut oil, and vanilla, mixing until all combined.
- Make the batter. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix with a spatula until just combined, being careful not to over-mix the batter. This is when you can fold in any mix-ins you’d like such as chocolate chips or chopped nuts. Generously coat a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray (or use paper liners) and divide the batter evenly between 12 muffin cups, making sure to fill each cup almost all the way full. Sprinkle the tops with rolled oats, if desired.
- BAKE! Bake the muffins in the oven at 350 degrees F for 18 to 22 minutes (mine came out perfect at 20 minutes), or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let the muffins cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack.
Prepping and Storage
To Store: You can keep these muffins stored in a sealed, airtight container or wrapped in aluminum foil on the counter at room temp for up to a day, but make sure to refrigerate after that to keep them longer. These muffins will last up to a week in the fridge in a sealed container.
To Freeze: These muffins freeze really well too! You can either wrap the muffins individually in plastic wrap or store them all together in freezer-safe bags. When ready to eat, just pop them in the microwave for 3o to 40 seconds or simply thaw out at room temperature. These will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months!
