How to Make Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Spoon into a prepared mini muffin pan and bake for 15-20 minutes. Done! That’s it!

You can use a regular size muffin pan, but I prefer to make the mini size of these healthy little guys in a mini silicone muffin pan.

What Makes These Mini Muffins Healthy?

  • Whole wheat flour and milled flax seed are both loaded with fiber! Fiber reduces the blood sugar spike caused by eating carbohydrates + it helps to keep you full and satisfied.
  • Honey and bananas are natural sweeteners which offer the benefits of vitamins and minerals.
  • Mini muffins offer a great way to watch your portion size! If you just need a little something in between meals – have 1 or 2….. or if you are having them at part of a balanced breakfast – go for 3 or 4!
