  • 5 bananas
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon powder
  • ¼ cup warm water approx.


Recipe to make banana muffins:

  • Mash ripe bananas in a mixing bowl.
  • Add honey and oil. I used coconut oil today and it gave a nice flavor to the banana cupcake. It's purely your choice.
  • Combine the wet ingredients well.
  • Now in another mixing bowl, sieve and add whole wheat flour.
  • Put baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.
  • You can add vanilla extract now and mix along.
  • Also, I use some cinnamon powder to give bakery aroma. It gives a nice taste to the muffins.
  • Use a spatula and combine all the ingredients gently. No dry flour should be seen.
  • If required add few tbsp of warm water to make a thick cupcake batter as shown.
  • The batter should be thick like Vada batter.
  • Grease the muffin tray with oil or line it up with muffin cups.
  • Fill half portion of each cup with batter.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C and bake the banana muffins for 25-30mins.
  • Check towards the end after 20mins for the doneness with a tooth pick. If it comes out clean, then stop baking, take out from the oven.
  • Let them cool down completely for approximately 20mins.
  • Serve hot as breakfast or as a snack.



Tips: 1) Do not bake beyond the mentioned time. 2) I used 5 small bananas and I like more of banana dominating muffins. If you don't like too much of banana, then reduce the number of bananas from 5 to 3 and increase the flour quantity 2 cups instead of 1.5cups. 3) Cinnamon powder is an optional ingredient and I love to include it in all my cake baking. 4) You can use brown sugar in place of honey.
