Apple banana muffins for breakfast

Ever wake up craving for some freshly baked muffins? Maybe it's the pregnancy, I'm not sure, but this morning I just needed to bake some muffins.

The original recipe came from here, but I did modify it. I wanted to share with you right away, because it came out so delicious! The original recipe was for banana and nuts, but N. is not a fan of nuts at all. So that had to come out. I also wanted to change some things around to try and get some extra yumminess in there. So, here's the end result. If you do try it, let me know how you like it.

  • 1 3/4 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cups of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons of low fat milk
  • 1/4 apple sauce
  • 3/4 cup mashed bananas (about 2 long bananas)
  • 1/2 cup of an apple, peeled and diced
  • a pinch of cinnamon and brown sugar
  1. Grease a muffin pan and preheat the oven to 400 F
  2. In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
  3. In a different bowl, combine the egg, milk, apple sauce, and bananas into the flour mixture. Mix the batter up just until moist, but still lumpy, then add the diced apple. 
  4. Pour into the greased muffin cups (2/3 full) then add an apple slice (or smaller piece) on top, then sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. 
  5. Bake for 18-20 minutes (or until it passes the toothpick test!). Cool and eat. 
Well, try to let it cool. We couldn't even wait 5 minutes, they smelled so wonderful. They tasted just as good too.

What do you crave for breakfast?


  1. These look a lot healthier than my cupcakes I baked today...I am now in sugar overload! Happy new week my friend. xoxo

  2. Typically it actually has to do with the weather. When it's warmer, yogurt really hits the spot!

  3. Yum and yum, looks amazing! :-)

  4. Now I'm wanting these muffins. :D I tend to crave oatmeal (I know, geeky) but pancakes too.

  5. Anything with oats in - weirdly.

    Those do look good - I must give them a go. Thank you -

  6. I am SO making these! I was just thinking that I want to bake something tomorrow, but not quite sure what I want to bake. These sound just perfect.... and I just bought apples, too! :)

  7. There's no rhyme or reason as to what I crave for breakfast. I could eat beef stroganoff if it was ready! Lol.

    Great recipe and love your presentation shot.
