I love banana cakes and desserts so much that every time I have some over-ripe bananas in the kitchen, I don’t get upset but actually really happy because it means that something tasty is on the way. I really can’t understand why people dislike bananas – it’s by far one of my top favorite fruits and it’s simply the perfect snack.

The following muffins are perfect for a healthy and sweet breakfast or an afternoon snack – and they are easily prepared. These are whole wheat banana muffins that are made in one bowl and are soft and simply delicious to have with a cup of coffee. I also like to add whole oats that make them richer in fiber, and the combination with whole wheat flour gives them a wonderful texture and aroma, and also makes them so healthy.

So, if you have a few ripe bananas lying around the kitchen counter – simply grab a bowl and a whisk and make these wonderful whole wheat banana muffins. You’re only a few minutes far from enjoying freshly baked muffins right off the oven!
