Healthy Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

Healthy Whole Wheat Banana Muffins - Delicious, moist and better for you! How can you go wrong?

We decided to give healthy whole wheat banana muffins in our continued efforts to drop some pounds. We enjoy our regular baked goods, apparently too much. You know the good kind with all-purpose flour, sugar, fat and all that good stuff. I was hoping these would keep my husband from the drive-thru every morning. Much to our surprise, they are crazy delicious! Even my daughter loved them.

You are swapping out the white flour for whole wheat, oil/butter for applesauce and Greek yogurt and granulated sugar for raw honey. We are not fans of Greek yogurt but we were willing to give it a try in a baked good.

Just combine the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet in another. Combine and fill the muffin pan. Just as you would any muffin recipe.

Bake at 375° degrees for 22 minutes. That’s it, so easy! I promise you will be just as surprised how these whole wheat banana muffins taste.
