Healthy Banana Muffins everyone will love

February 11, 2022
Banana muffins

I’m a fan of Bananas. I love them on toast with peanut butter, on their own, in a smoothie, banana bread, banana cake and muffins. I haven’t baked for a few weeks and wanted something quick, easy and healthy as a snack, for lunch boxes or afternoon tea. These Banana Muffins were the perfect recipe. They were quick and easy to make in 5 steps and only had three ingredients which I had in the pantry and fridge.

Bananas are healthy, delicious and packed with goodness.

  • Great source of fibre,
  • Potassium (good for heart health and blood pressure)
  • Maganese to help body produce collagen
  • Supports gut health, aids digestion and gastrointestinal issues
  • Vitamin B6 to help your body produce red blood cells, metabolise carbohydrates and fats, turning them into energy
  • Aids nervous system
  • Zero fat, cholesterol and salt
  • Restores tired muscles
  • As the Australian Banana Board says: Bananas literally make your body sing!

Healthy Banana Muffins – 3 ingredients

Serves: 6

Banana muffins 3 ingredients
Banana Muffins


2 bananas

2/3 cup creamy vanilla yogurt

1 cup self-raising flour – I used Wholemeal


Spray Muffin Tray with oil to prepare

  1. Mash the bananas in a bowl
  2. Mix in the yogurt
  3. Gradually add the flour and stir each addition to combine.
  4. Spoon into muffin trays. I used large muffin trays but you could make mini muffins if you prefer.
  5. Cook at 180C for about 15 minutes although mine took about 20. Check Muffins are cooked by inserting a skewer into the middle and if it comes out clean they are done!

Mr M gave them a thumbs up and I liked the fact that I didn’t need to add sugar to the mix.

Let me know if you try them.

    Yum Sue, those sound really good. I might need to try those. My grandson made banana muffins last night, but his were “dairy free” since he doesn’t do well with dairy.
