The easiest recipe for one bowl banana muffins. These banana muffins are made with whole wheat flour, sweetened with maple syrup, and are great for a healthy breakfast or snack.



3 large ripe bananas, mashed (about 1.5 cup)

1/3 cup applesauce

1/2 cup maple syrup

2 eggs

1/4 cup milk

1 Tbsp vanilla

2 cups white whole wheat flour

1 1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Spray muffin tins or line with baking cups, and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash bananas until just a few lumps remain.
  3. Add applesauce, maple syrup, eggs, milk, and vanilla. Stir until mixed.
  4. Add flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Mix until ingredients are just moistened and a few lumps remain.
  5. Divide batter between 12-15 muffin cups by spooning batter into the cups.
  6. Bake at 325F for 20-25 minutes, until toothpick inserted into the center of muffins comes out clean.
  7. Cool in muffin tins for a few minutes, then move muffins to cooling rack to cool before serving.


These muffins freeze well – just freeze in a large freezer bag in a single layer.

To thaw frozen muffins, place on a microwave safe plate, and heat for 30-45 seconds until warmed through.
