    The perfect muffin doesn’t exis-

    Yes. Yes, it does.

    Healthy blueberry banana muffins ingredients:

    milk: to get the right consistency. I used cow’s milk, but you can use non-dairy versions if you have special dietary needs (coconut, almond, soy, etc.)
    egg: for structure
    vegetable oil: you can use any neutral flavored oil in place of vegetable. You can even use melted coconut oil if you like the flavor
    • natural sweetener: I used honey this time around. But my other favorite natural sweeteners are coconut sugar, unsweetened applesauce, and maple syrup (if you’re looking for substitutes)
    ripe bananas: the main sweetness in these muffins comes from the ripe bananas. If you have a bit more of a sweet tooth, feel free to add more natural sweetener (or if you’re not picky on keeping it refined sugar free, you can also just use granulated sugar)
    whole wheat flour: slightly less than the amount of regular flour you would use in our blueberry muffins recipe. Whole wheat flour absorbs liquid more readily than all-purpose flour, which is why we need less
    baking powder: to keep everything tender and light
    salt: to balance out the flavors
    blueberries: fresh or frozen work fine

    How to store these muffins:

    These muffins store just as well as regular muffins! They’ll keep for up to 3 days at room temperature or up to 1 week in the fridge.

    To freeze, simply transfer your baked and cooled muffins to a freezer bag, push out the air, and seal. Then freeze! These muffins will keep for about 3 to 4 months in the freezer.

    100% Whole Wheat Blueberry Banana Muffins Recipe

    Inspired by our classic blueberry muffins recipe, these healthy blueberry banana muffins are made with 100% whole wheat flour, and absolutely NO refined sugar! They're the perfect snack/breakfast/dessert for clean eating.
    Prep Time 10 minutes
    Bake Time 18 minutes
    Total Time 28 minutes
    Servings 12 muffins

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup milk, you can also use dairy free substitutes * see notes
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil, or any neutral flavored oil
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1/4 cup natural sweetener, I used honey ** see notes for substitutions
    • 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)
    • 1 & 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 & 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

    Instructions

    • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a 12 count muffin tin with paper liners, and set aside.
    • In a large bowl, combine milk, oil, eggs, sweetener, mashed bananas, and vanilla. Whisk to combine, and set aside. In a separate medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together.
    • Combine wet and dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Add your blueberries and fold them in until they're evenly dispersed. Take care not to over mix!
    • Portion out your muffin batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups. Bake in the center of your preheated 350°F oven for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool to room temperature before serving!

    Notes

    * Some dairy free milk options that go well with this recipe include soy, coconut, or almond milk. Soy milk is my favorite of the bunch just because it yields the most similar final product when compared to cow’s milk!
    ** If you’re not picky about keeping this refined sugar free, you can use granulated sugar as your sweetener. If you want to keep this muffin on the healthier side, other natural sweetener options that I like are coconut sugar, maple syrup, or unsweetened applesauce.

    Enjoy!
