Servings: 12 muffins
Calories: 149kcal


  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour see note
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled slightly
  • cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana about 3 medium
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups blueberries fresh or frozen


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a muffin tin (or mini muffin tins) with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together both flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together melted butter, maple syrup, mashed banana, egg, milk, and vanilla.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until almost combined. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  • Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin, dividing batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups.
  • Bake for 16-18 minutes, until a tester inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. (Bake mini muffins for about 12 minutes.) Let muffins cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.


YI've also made these muffins with all white whole-wheat flour and they are delicious that way, too. Plus, that makes them 100% whole grain! If your tastes haven't adjusted to 100% whole-wheat, then you might prefer these made with part all-purpose flour.
