  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 medium ripe bananas mashed
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 2 muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray or line with cupcake liners.
  • In a medium size bowl, combine flour, flaxseed, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir well to combine.
  • In another bowl, combine mashed bananas, beaten egg, melted butter, brown sugar, applesauce, milk, yogurt and vanilla. Whisk well to combine.
  • Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Spoon batter into each hole in the muffin pan until it is about 2/3 full.
  • Place muffins in oven and bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from pan and cool on a wire rack.


Chef’s Note: This is a versatile muffin recipe. Add mix-ins like chopped nuts or chocolate chips for a change of pace. Or if you want to use a different fruit like blueberries to make blueberry muffins, cut back on the amount of bananas to just 2.
