Brunch Goes Bananas

Banana Granola MuffinsI always like to fix a nice Sunday breakfast since it is one of the only days I have to get up when I want and relax a little. Usually it is more in the time frame of a brunch so, besides the usual omelets and bacon, I add some favorites like these Banana Granola Muffins. (Made with bananas from my backyard tree!) I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Banana Granola Muffins


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 overripe bananas
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup granola ( used my homemade vanilla almond granola)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray muffin tins with non-stick spray.

In large bowl combine flours, baking soda and salt. Set aside. Mash bananas with a fork in small bowl and set aside. Cream brown sugar, butter and applesauce until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix well. Add mashed bananas. Mix in dry ingredients until just incorporated. Fold in granola. Pour batter into muffin tins to the top. Bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes then turn out of muffin tin. Cool completely and store in tightly sealed bag at room temperature or freeze for future use.

Makes 16-18 muffins.
