Healthy Whole-Wheat Honey Banana Muffins

If you couldn’t tell by the title, this recipe is very healthy. There is no sugar and no refined flour. AND THEY TASTE GOOD. I wouldn’t lie. This is my first time baking muffins from scratch, so I’m very pleased. I found the recipe here, altered it slightly and cut in half because I only have a 12-count muffin pan. And this was all the while watching Fawlty Towers!


  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 17 minutes
  • Yields: 12 beautiful muffins 


  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 bananas mashed
  • 1/4 cup hot water


  • Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees and grease the muffin pan 
  • Put the whole wheat flour, baking soda, and salt into a small bowl and mix. 

dry ingredients

  • Put the dry ingredients to the side and get a bigger bowl where everything will end up. Put in the olive oil and honey and whisk well.

  • Once that is well mixed, drop in those two eggs and mix mix mix!


  • Once those are beaten, then add the mashed (MASH THEM) bananas into the mix.
  • Now the dry ingredients are ready to make friends with the wet ingredients. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients, alternating with pouring in a little of the hot water you measured out before. Mix well!
Mix all ready to go

Mix all ready to go

  • The mix is delicious by the way–had way too much of it before it hit the oven. Go a head and pour the mix into your muffin pan. Fill it as high up as you want–it all depends on how big muffins you’d like.


  • Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Mine cooked in about 17 minutes. Try going for 15 minutes and test them.
