Originally, I had made these muffins with oats, which is a powerhouse of nutrition by itself. With bananas, and whole wheat flour in it, it was my favorite healthy snack to make when I had overripe bananas on my counter with no one willing to eat them!!!

Whenever I need to munch on something crunchy and healthy, muesli is my to-go snack. You will always find a box of muesli cereal (I normally buy the Bagrry’s brand) full of dried fruits, nuts and healthy grains in my pantry.

To give my favorite recipe a boost, I substituted the oats with muesli and reduced sugar a little bit, and voila; how could it get any healthier?!! Now, my family can have these guilt free any time!!

Ingredients
  1. ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  2. ½ cup muesli or oats
  3. ¼ cup sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  5. ½ teaspoon baking soda
  6. ½ cup milk
  7. ½ cup mashed bananas
  8. ¼ cup oil
  9. ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  10. Pinch salt
  11. Few raisins (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit or 200 degrees Centigrade.
  2. Line a muffin pan with cake liners or spray or coat the pans with oil.
  3. Mash the bananas (about 3 to 4 small bananas) well, either with your hands or a potato masher, till there are no lumps and keep aside.
  4. First gather the wet ingredients; milk, oil, mashed bananas and vanilla essence.
  5. In a small bowl, mix the wet ingredients with a spoon and keep aside.
  6. Now, keep the dry ingredients ready; flour, muesli/oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  7. In another large bowl, mix the dry ingredients; with a spoon or whisk.
  8. Now gently, mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a spoon just until mixed; it is ok if you see some dry specks. Do not over mix or the muffins will become hard and dry.
  9. Divide batter among the prepared muffin cups. Top each with some raisins (optional) or you can sprinkle some granulated sugar on top(optional); this gives a crunchy top to the muffins!!
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted inside the center of the muffin comes out clean.
  11. Remove from the oven and place on cooling racks to cool completely.
  12. Serve these healthy muesli banana muffins warm or at room temperature.
  13. Enjoy!!
Notes
  1. If you do not have muesli, you can use oats.
  2. To make it more scrumptious, you can stir in raisins, chocolate chips, nuts or any other dried fruit in the batter before baking.
  3. For a vegan option, use almond milk or soy milk or even coconut milk instead of regular milk.
  4. If you have nut allergies, use muesli without the nuts or use oats instead.
