"Snow" Day Healthy Banana Muffins

Last week we were all prepared to have a huge blizzard here in Rhody. I actually started my day off at work but the roads started to look really bad so I headed home in the late morning. About an hour after I got home it turned to rain....therefore it was my "snow" day.

Since I was already home and hanging out I decided to whip up some healthy banana muffins. My mom always would bake banana nut muffins and I would devour them in twos or threes. Since Tim and I are trying to lose weight, eat healthy, and work out at least 4-5 times a week I decided to try a healthy recipe I found on Pinterest.

I found this recipe on and the muffins turned out pretty well. I do have to tell you they are nothing like those muffins that my mom used to make but since they are a healthy version I didn't expect them to be. I did love when I got a banana bite because that was by far the sweetest part of the muffin. Tim reviewed them as good and I was pretty impressed that I made them from scratch.

So if you want to re-create this recipe this is what you need:


1 1/2 cups of bananas. (I used three bananas and the original recipe called for them to be very ripe, but I just used the ones I had bought the day before at the grocery store. I think you could honestly include a fourth banana if you wanted)

1 Egg

1/2 cup  Unsweetened Applesauce

1/4 cup  Maple Syrup or Raw Honey (I used maple syrup)

1 tsp Baking Powder, aluminum free

1/2 tsp Baking Soda

1/4 tsp Salt

1 tsp Vanilla Extract, pure

1 1/3 cups Whole Wheat Flour

3 tbsp Olive Oil

Cooking Spray (I didn't use cooking spray because I used cupcake liners instead)


- Preheat oven to 375 and either spray your muffin tin (12 muffins) or put cupcake liners inside.

- Beat your egg in a mixing bowl

-Add bananas to bowl and mash well

-Add all remaining ingredients except for the flour and mix everything together.

-Add the flour and stir all ingredients.

-Fill each tin (or cupcake liner) with batter and bake for 22 minutes.

- Take out muffins, allow to cool and then enjoy!

If you are looking for a healthier version of a banana muffin then this is it, just remember there is no sugar to will taste healthy! I am enjoying trying new healthy foods but I do miss my sugar! :)
