100% naturally sweetened baby banana muffins. Make them mini for your wee ones’ breakfast or snack, or make them bigger for you! The perfect baby led weaning muffin.


  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 very ripe, large bananas
  • 2 tbsp avocado or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, room temperature
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup raspberries*


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and spray or line a mini or standard sized muffin pan with muffin liners. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together both flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, mash bananas until no large lumps remain. Stir in the oil, Greek yogurt and applesauce until combined. Whisk in the egg and vanilla extract.
  4. Carefully add the wet ingredients to the dry, stirring until just combined. Do not overmix! Gently fold in the raspberries, if using.
  5. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin pan: about 24 mini, or 6 standard-sized. Bake 12-14 minutes for the mini muffins, or 22-25 minutes for the standard-sized, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Allow the muffins to cool for 5 minutes in the pan before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Muffins stay fresh at room temperature, in a sealed container for up to 1 week. Muffins freeze very well, up to 2 months.


  1. Replace raspberries with any other mix-in. Try blueberries, blackberries, diced strawberries, raisins or chocolate chips. Fresh or frozen fruit will work; if using frozen, do not thaw first.
  2. *Recipe updated February 2019* I’ve updated the recipe to include unsweetened applesauce. The original recipe remains the same other than this addition. The applesauce adds a bit more moisture and sweetness to the muffins, but feel free to omit it!
