I am always experimenting with new “healthy” recipes to feed my fam. Sometimes they’re hits and other times, not so much. I was soo happy last week when I came up with these healthy banana muffins. Not only did I get this recipe PERFECT on the first try, but my family literally devoured all 21 mini muffins within a half hour of me making them. These were a major winner!
I made another batch today so that I could get some pictures taken, but unfortunately half were eaten before I could take pics. The other half I reserved and then sent my kids to bed and snapped a few shots for the blog 😉
The best part is that they use Kodiak Cakes pancake mix, which means they are whole grain and protein packed. I love using Kodiak Cakes mix in place of flour for those very reasons. On the back of the box it actually tells you that you can sub it for normal flour. It also says that when using the mix, you don’t need to add any additional baking soda or baking powder since it is already in there. This eliminates a few ingredients in the recipe, so that’s nice too.
There is a muffin recipe on the back of the box, but it includes more ingredients and way more fat. The recipe I created below has no oil or butter added.
This is great to make ahead and grab if you’re trying to rush out the door and can’t make breakfast.
I’m so excited for you all to try out these healthy banana muffins! They are unbelievably easy to make and sooo moist and delicious!
