Healthy Banana Muffins Recipe

Makes 12


  • ⅓ cup low fat yoghurt
  •  ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tbs chia seed (soak for 15 mins in 6tbs water to thicken)
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • ¼ cup milk of choice (we used almond milk)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1¾ cups whole wheat flour
  • ⅓ cup oats
  • optional: 2 tbs Psyllium husk, 1 cup berries, ½ cup chopped chopped nuts


  1. Preheat oven to 165 degrees Celsius and line muffin trays with cupcake wrappers.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the yoghurt and honey together with a whisk. Add chia seed mixtures, beat well.
  3. Mix in the mashed bananas and milk, followed by the baking soda, vanilla extract, salt and cinnamon.
  4. Using a spoon, stir in the flour and oats to the bowl until just combined.
  5. If adding option extras, fold them in now.
  6. Divide the batter evenly, filling each cup about two-thirds full. Bake muffins for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
  7. Place the muffins on a rack to cool.
