I believe the world is divided into two groups: those who like muffins and those who do not. I am a member of the latter category. Muffins aren’t really my thing. If I’m going to eat carbohydrates, I’m going to choose between a crispy baguette and a fudgy brownie. So, baked items that are both floury and chocolate-free… What’s the purpose, I say? Then I baked these Whole Wheat Banana Muffins, and everything in my life changed. 


When you take a bite, your taste senses explode. Banana! Oatmeal! A smidgeon of cimmamon! You won’t even notice you’re not eating a fudgy brownie or a gooey cookie since these banana muffins are so moist and tasty. You’re overjoyed to be eating these light and fluffy banana nut muffins.

So you’re eating a muffin and you’re thinking to yourself, “Wait, what’s that?” What about a nutty crunch? There are walnuts in there, to be sure! I mean, bananas and walnuts are a match made in heaven. Please, don’t make me laugh. Anyways. Yeah. They’re excellent gentlemen.


I used those lovely tulip muffin liners to make these whole wheat banana muffins, which meant they were as large as the bakery-style muffins you get at Dunkin’ Donuts (can you tell I’m from Boston?). However, I created the recipe using standard-sized muffin liners, assuming that most people would have them on hand.

So, if you want them to appear exactly like these, divide the batter equally into six tulips and bake them for an additional 5 minutes. Simply stick a knife into the top of the muffin to check if it comes out clean to see if it’s done.
