A healthy and filling muffin that combines the great taste of bananas and trail mix. This recipe also can be made in a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan (bake 50 minutes) or four mini loaf pans (bake 30 minutes).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350°F Line 14 muffin cups with paper liners. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in large bowl.
  2. Combine bananas, butter and eggs in medium bowl. Beat into dry ingredients at medium speed until combined. Stir in trail mix until well-blended. Spoon into muffin cups.
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.
  4. Tip: If trail mix has no chocolate in it, use 1 cup trail mix and 1/2 cup chocolate chips.

FABULOUS 5 star muffins!!!! I subbed homemade peanut butter granola with a handful of chocolate chips thrown in. . .I mean really, could there be a better blend of flavors than banana, peanut butter and chocolate?!?!?!? Outstanding! And my picky toddler who eats NOTHING I make actually ate these up. My batter was a bit thick so I threw in 1/4 cup of applesauce and it was perfect. I made 12 mini muffins (cooked 12 minutes) and 12 regular sized muffins (cooked 18 minutes). Thanks for a winner of a recipe that I will definitely repeat! Made for Photo Tag. UPDATE: I made this recipe again. . .subbed Splenda for the sugar (will decrease amount next time) and used a trail mix from Aldi's with pineapple, cranberries, peanuts and white chocolate chips. Nice! Made them into mini muffins again and this time they took about 15 minutes.

Crafty- these are simple nd delicious. I ended up with 18 muffins as I made them only 1/2 full in the cups (easier to portion control myself) and easier t send in lunch bags for DS and DH. These are great for a breakfast on the run and for anytime in between. I had a chocolate craze and ended up subbing this in instead of a candy bar and I was very satisfied. Used 1 c of granola ceral and 1/2 c plus a shake of mini chocolate chips. I am going to make more of these using mint chocolate chips. I am wondering how the mint and the banana would taste. YUMMY I bet. Thank you. Made for Beverage Tag August 09
