These are delicious with macadamia nuts, but are also very good with the more traditional pecans or walnuts. This recipe is less sweet than some muffin recipes - which I think makes them perfect for breakfast. Try them plain, or cut in half and toast in a toaster oven with butter.

Mmm! These are so good! I was looking for a banana nut muffin recipe using whole wheat flour and this one hit the spot. I used pecans and canola oil (that's what I had on hand) and added a dash of vanilla extract for flavor. I also cut the oil in half (1/4 cup) and sprinkled some oats on top. They came out great!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400. Grease muffin cups, or line with paper baking cups.
  2. Beat mashed banana, oil, milk, nuts, and egg with a spoon in a medium bowl.
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients just until moistened (batter will be lumpy, so don't be tempted to overbeat).
  4. Spoon batter into muffin pan.
  5. Bake about 20 minutes at 400, just until golden brown. Immediately remove from cups.
