Good-For-You Banana Apple Raisin Bran Muffins


I’ve had a slight problem with picking up a few too many bananas at Aldi lately, so my freezer is packed with browned bananas that didn’t get eaten quickly enough!  I finally decided it was time to do something with all those bananas, and came up with this healthified 🙂 treat that we loved.  They’re good for you, and a great way to use up some fruit in your kitchen if you have it.


(You can also easily double the batch . . which is what I did because muffins go fast around here!)

  1. i have a stupid question, I’m not familiar with baking with whole wheat flour-so couldn’t you just use a whole cup of whole wheat flour instead of half white and half whole wheat?

    • Hi Darbe! You could use all whole wheat, but they would be a little heavier/denser muffins, so I usually use half whole wheat and half white wheat when I bake. (They’d definitely be even better for you though, if you try it let me know how they are!)

  2. Hi Laurie,
    These muffins look delicious! I have everything but whole wheat flour. Can I use just white flour and maybe more raisin bran perhaps? Already spent my grocery $ this week and don’t want to spend over budget but don’t want to waste my bananas either. Love your site!

    • Hey Lori! Yes – I don’t even think you need to add more raisin bran – when I run out of whole wheat flour that’s what I do too! 🙂
