Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 large overripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil (or other neutral tasting oil)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup wheat bran
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease the bottom of a muffin pan or use muffin liners.
  • Mix all the wet ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. 
  • Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a different bowl, then stir in the wet ingredients until combined.
  • Transfer to the prepared muffin pan, making 12 muffins. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let them cool a few minutes before removing from the pan. 

Notes

These muffins aren't overly sweet as they're only sweetened with fruits. They're great served as a healthy snack with peanut butter, butter/margarine or jam!
If you like raisins, you can always add a handful to the batter to make raisin bran muffins.
