  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line muffin tin with paper liners or grease cups well.
  • In a stand mixer with paddle attachment or hand mixer and large mixing bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each egg.
  • Followed by the vanilla extract and mix.
  • Add the baking soda, salt, cinnamon and whole wheat flour. Mix just until combined.
  • Add half of the mashed bananas and mix gently.
  • Add the all purpose flour and mix just until combined.
  • Add the remaining mashed bananas and chopped walnuts. Mix just until incorporated, being careful not to overmix.
  • Using a large scoop, fill muffin cups ¾ full. Add a little extra chopped walnuts to the top for a pretty muffin top.
  • Bake for 16-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 2 minutes in the pan and then remove to cool completely.


***Pro Tip: If there are some empty muffin cups, pour some water into each one. This will prevent the pan from burning, plus give some extra moisture to the muffins.
