Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

"Playing around with some healthier breakfast bread recipes so I have them ready for after the holidays --these banana muffins use @betterbodyfoods coconut oil, a little bit of maple syrup for sweetness, spices, oats and whole wheat flour. The texture is amazing!"

Recipe Card


  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup ripe bananas, mashed, (about 3 bananas)
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats, plus more for sprinkling on top
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Turbinado sugar, for sprinkling


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin with butter or non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, maple syrup, and honey. Beat in the eggs followed by the mashed bananas, milk, and vanilla extract.

  • Step 3

    With a large spoon or spatula, stir the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt into the bowl. Mix until just combined and moistened.

  • Step 4

    Divide the batter evenly between the prepared muffin cups (each should be about two-thirds full). Sprinkle tops with oats and a little turbinado sugar.

  • Step 5

    Bake muffins for 22 to 24 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool a bit before running a knife around each muffins edge (if needed) to remove from the cups.
