  • Blend flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl. Make a well in the center; add eggs, maple syrup, applesauce, and coconut oil. Stir by hand until just combined. Add bananas, blueberries, and walnuts. Mix until just incorporated. Divide batter evenly into the prepared muffin tin.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, 6 to 7 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 15 minutes more.

  • Cool muffins in tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Great subs for butter and sugar. Not super sweet. The bananas provide the sweetness which I m happy with. I also researched the nutrition info of each ingredient and there s definitely more substance and not just empty carbs to this. For instance each muffin will have about 3g of protein coz of the flour and eggs. Also more vitamin C and other vitamins than the usual muffin base. I followed the recipe exactly. I did alter the baking time. Recipe calls for 15 minutes at 350. I checked them at 12 and they were almost done then. Added 2 minutes and the muffins were a tad dry. I think they would ve been perfect at 13 minutes. So just check them earlier. It is summer so that probably affected baking time. Will definitely make again and use the base for other types of muffins. Read More

I wanted to bake these in my toaster oven, so I cut the recipe to 1/2 to fit a small 6 c. muffin tin. Really love these...very moist & plenty sweet enough for me. I didn't have applesauce, so I diced a cored apple with the skin & microwaved for 6 min. in a small microwave pot( I like chunky apple sauce) & added all to the other wet ingred. after it cools down. I also reduced the coconut oil and maple syrup each to just 1 T. ea. and added 1t. of stevia...perfect sweetness for me and very moist. Read More

Great muffins! They aren't overly sweet but they are still really flavorful. I added in some flax meal in place of a little bit of the whole wheat flour; and also added a little cinnamon nutmeg and vanilla extract---just a personal preference flavor-wise. I also like that there isn't a super strong banana flavor; it's not overwhelming the blueberries at all. They're also quite moist for whole wheat muffins. The best part about these is that they taste great without any refined sugar. The directions are a touch confusing; as it states to preheat the oven to 325 cook the muffins for 6-7 minutes then reduce the heat to 350--not sure how that works? I just baked the muffins at 350 for about 22-25 minutes total and I got 15 regular sized muffins out of it. Will definitely make again! Thank you! Read More

Delicious and healthy! I love that this recipe has no sugar oil or butter. I used 3 bananas and unsweetened shredded coconut in place of walnuts. Next time I plan to use 1/2 cup of applesauce. I think it will help to make the muffins more moist. Read More

Absolutely delicious. I like that there is no sugar substitue and no sugar. I added natural vanilla... just because I like it. It is not overly sweet which makes me feel like I am on the healthy side. It made me 24 mini muffins as I prefer "just a bite". They taste "healthier" than other recipes. Read More

These turn out great. Do not overbake they dry quickly! Also very forgiving of substitutions. I have tried various modifications for my own personal ease and ingredients on hand. I've used all sprouted whole wheat flour. The kids like mini muffins so I don't use/need baking powder. I've subbed buttermilk or plain yogurt w 1T of apple cider vinegar for the applesauce (to help leaven w the soda). I've upped the salt a bit. I also added one chopped apple last time and it didn't alter the baking time just made a few extra muffins. Kids liked the apple chunks. I've been baking at 350 for 10/12 min (mini muffins). Muffins stick to paper liners so I spray them w a bit of oil before filling. A lot of ingredients but nutritious and very customizable. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

The next time that I am going to make this I am going to try and put some chia seeds to make it even more healthier! It was nice and easy! I would totally recommend these muffins! Read More

Just came out of the oven not too long ago and taste tested by my 2 teenage boys and husband and got the thumbs up by all. Personally I like mine with a bit more sweetness probably from all the "bakery" muffins I've had over the years. Not much on the banana flavor so i might add a 3rd next time which might help with the sweetness. I would certainly make them again though. Read More
