Wholesome naturally sweetened Whole Wheat Banana Bread Muffins 😍
Week 2 of my MOTW (Muffin of the week) and I’m bringing you these whole wheat banana bread muffins!
In cased you missed it, I have decided to try to post a new muffin recipe every week of February.
My 18 month old son, Crosby, is a terribly picky eater.
He loves homemade muffins and breads though, so I am testing out new wholesome recipes that we can all eat as snacks or breakfast.
He has eaten two of these banana bread muffins, so far so good!
Banana bread is one of my very favorite things.
So easy to make, and incredibly healthy.
These banana bread muffins are oil free and naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup.
They rise up to make huge bakery style muffins.
We love ours warm and slathered with just a bit of butter.
It’s an easy and healthy snack or breakfast!
You only need 8 ingredients and less than 30 minutes to make these whole wheat banana bread muffins.
Be sure not to over mix the batter as we want these to be nice and soft and fluffy.
Mine baked in right around 18 minutes.
Depending on your oven, these should be ready in 15 – 18 minutes.
Banana bread smells like heaven to me.
On a side note, who sells the best banana bread scented candle? I seriously might need one in my life!
The smell of homemade bread baking is amazing.
And when Crosby eats healthy snacks like this, I feel like I’m not doing so bad at this whole mom thing.
What are your favorite healthy snacks to feed your kids?
