The very aroma of these muffins baking in the oven will make your mouth drool!

If you think those browning bananas sitting on your counter belong in the trash, think again! Overripe bananas may flaunt a less-than-appetizing appearance, but they’re your ticket to mouthwateringly-moist baked goods like banana nut muffins.

Our recipe yields light, scrumptious banana muffins that melt in your mouth. Made with clean ingredients like unrefined coconut sugar, cinnamon, and coconut oil, these decadent delights make a healthy grab-and-go breakfast or guilt-free dessert.

White whole wheat flour serves as a healthier alternative to ultra-refined white flour and gives these treats a low-glycemic index. Chopped walnuts add a delicate crunch and pair beautifully with the sweetness from the banana. The very aroma of these muffins baking in the oven will make your mouth drool!
