These Simple Banana Muffins are full of incredible banana flavor and are healthier than most muffins!



Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup Sucanator organic sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 3 medium/large ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup oil*
  • 1/4 cup almond milk + 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar**
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a muffin tin with silicone baking cups or paper liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients.
  3. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas very well. Use a potato masher if possible and get them as smooth as you can.
  4. Add the rest of the wet ingredients to the mashed bananas and whisk until well combined.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and use a spoon to stir until just combined. Do not over-mix the batter or your muffins will be dense.
  6. Pour the batter into the muffin tins, each cup should be almost filled to the top.
  7. Bake at 425 degrees for 8 minutes. Without opening the oven door, reduce the heat to 350 degrees. Bake for an additional 7-8 minutes at 350 degrees, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Enjoy!


*I tested this recipe with avocado oil and melted coconut oil, both worked well
