I had Whole Foods Banana Nut Muffin and it was amazing! I always hoped I would find a recipe that tasted similar. I altered a recipe today drastically and was very pleased at how close I got to it. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Blend all wet ingredients (including tofu) in food processor.
  2. 2. Add in all dry ingredients with the exception of the walnuts. Blend just till combined.
  3. 3. Fold in walnuts and raisins.
  4. 4. Put in muffin pan that has been lined with muffin liners. I got 15 muffins from this. Go figure.
  5. 5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-24 minutes or till a knife inserted comes out clean.

These were very, very yummy. My whole family, even my picky daughter, liked them! I substituted chocolate chips for the raisins, and wow, it turned out great! I would only recommend spraying the paper cups with a little cooking spray so that the muffins don't stick. Other than that, they were amazing!

These muffins were fantastic. I have an extremely picky eater who suddenly isn't so picky when it comes to sweets. So I try to hide healthy stuff in desserts, a la "Deceptively Delicious." This is a good recipe for being tricky. The only change I made was to omit the raisins and substitute the same amount of finely grated carrots. I baked them for exactly 20 minutes, and they came out cooked all the way through yet very moist and rich- just like a banana bread should be. I was a little in askance when I saw the cocoa and cinnamon, but I think they added a lot of flavor boost to the banana without taking over or standing out. Just made it more complex. Sometimes I have the complaint when using whole wheat flour that the recipe ends up too dry or not raising nicely, but this has just the right amount of moisture and puffiness.

I think these came out awesome! Only worried about calories with all that honey and maple syrup. That being said, these came out moist and flavorful. A little vanilla might have helped . I used silken tofu because that is what I had. Also used 3 bananas sine they were so ripe and didn't want to throw one out. I also used pecans because that is what I had and omitted the raisins. I was surprised to see cocoa in the recipe and it should probably be in the title, because hey, everything is better with chocolate, right! I love all the healthy options in this recipe. I got 21 muffins , but they were the regular size. It is best to let the batter sit for a few minutes to thicken up. Mine was a little watery at first, but once the dry ingredients were absorbed the batter was nice! A tasty treat and I want to eat more, but watching those calories!
