Notes

Substitutions for this Super Healthy Banana Bread Muffins Recipe:
  • WW Freestyle Note/Nutrition Facts : The points/nutrition facts for this recipe were calculated using Lily's Chocolate Chips
  • To make gluten free: replace whole wheat flour with Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Flour
  • To make vegan: replace 1 egg white with 1 flax egg. Sub honey with maple syrup
  • Honey : You can substitute honey with maple syrup.
  • Flour: You can replace whole wheat flour with white flour but your muffins might be a little more dense. I would not recommend almond flour, coconut flour, or oat flour. You can not substitute these flours 1:1 with whole wheat flour.
  • Spices: You can omit the ground ginger and nutmeg if you don't have any. Add a little bit more cinnamon to compensate!
  • Nuts: You can add  pecans or walnuts
  • Healthy Banana Bread: Use this recipe for our favorite Healthy Banana Bread instead
  • Blueberries: You can add in a 1/2 cup of blueberries to this batter for a fun twist!
  • Adding protein: if you want to up the protein content, try these Healthy Banana Protein Muffins. There are a few tweaks to help them not dry out while adding protein powder
  • Mini Muffins: You can make these into mini muffins by cutting the bake time in half. 
  • Frozen Bananas: You can use frozen bananas in this recipe. Defrost them in the microwave until they are warm before mashing them.
  • ApplesauceIf you're short on bananas, you can substitute the difference with applesauce
