Nuts for Bananas Healthy Muffins

These super moist muffins are healthy and toddler/kid friendly banana nut muffins. Muffins are great to make ahead and freeze in an air tight bag, take them out and thaw for a busy morning or pop some in the oven to serve warm. You can also individually wrap them in plastic for an easy on-the-go breakfast.

These nutrient rich banana nut muffins are delicious when served warm right out of the oven, but even better with a smear of almond or peanut butter.


  • ⅓ cup melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup honey or agave nectar
  • 2 eggs (at room temperature)
  • 1 cup ripe mashed bananas (about 3 medium size bananas)
  • ¼ cup milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon (Plus more to sprinkle on top*)
  • ⅓ cup old fashioned oats (Plus more to sprinkle on top*)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • *Optional Extras: Sprinkle tops of muffins with extra oats and extra cinnamon.


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the melted coconut oil and honey or agave nectar together with a whisk or hand mixer. Add eggs and beat well.
  3. Mix in the mashed bananas and almond milk, followed by the baking soda, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt.
  4. Add the flour, whole wheat flour and oats to the bowl and mix with a large spoon, until just combined. Then fold in chopped walnuts. Batter will be slightly lumpy but firm.
  5. Scoop large spoonful into a pre-greased muffin pan.
  6. If desired, sprinkle tops of muffins with cinnamon and oats.
  7. Bake muffins for 22 minutes, or until golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool on cooling rack for 3-5 minutes before serving.


Muffins can be stored in air tight bag in the freezer for up to 3 weeks.
