Healthy Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

Healthy Whole Wheat Banana Muffins - Delicious, moist and better for you! How can you go wrong?

We decided to give healthy whole wheat banana muffins in our continued efforts to drop some pounds. We enjoy our regular baked goods, apparently too much. You know the good kind with all-purpose flour, sugar, fat and all that good stuff.

I was hoping these would keep my husband from the drive-thru every morning. Much to our surprise, they are crazy delicious! Even my daughter loved them.

You are swapping out the white flour for whole wheat, oil/butter for applesauce and Greek yogurt and granulated sugar for raw honey. We are not fans of Greek yogurt but we were willing to give it a try in a baked good.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a muffin tin with paper liners or spray with baking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg then add mashed bananas, applesauce, honey, vanilla, and yogurt. Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan, filling each cup about 3/4 full.

    Absolutely delicious! The muffins were very moist and great flavour. I used very, very ripe bananas and only 1/2 cup sugar. I honestly think I could have left out the sugar altogether and they would has tasted just fine, I think the bananas helped with the sweetness. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thanks
