Real Food Banana Nut Muffins {Recipe}

Banana Nut Muffins 1

I always love Gooseberry Patch cookbooks, and this one is no different! Today, I am sharing a recipe from their Good-for-You Everyday Meals book, with over 200 recipes, tips, and fun stories.

As usual, I followed the recipe loosely, making adaptations as necessary to fit our real food lifestyle, and to allow for what we had in our pantry. This recipe is a winner, and I can’t wait to try some of the other delicious-sounding muffin recipes from this book!

Banana Nut Muffins

What you need:

  • 3 very ripe, mashed bananas
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together mashed bananas, eggs, oil, and maple syrup until combined.
  2. Add oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, stirring just until blended
  3. Fold in vanilla and walnuts
  4. Spoon batter into muffin tins. (I stretched my batter slightly and made 2 pans of mini-muffins). Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes for mini-muffins, or 20-25 minutes for full-sized muffins.

Everyone enjoyed these muffins immensely!
