Banana Cranberry Muffins


Yield: 12 muffinsIMG_1330

  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp apple sauce
  • 6 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 1/4 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 5 medium bananas)
  • 2 cups + 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup whole cranberries
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts, sunflower/pumpkin seeds, etc.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly oil a 12-muffin muffin tin.
  2. Put the milk, apple sauce, maple syrup and bananas in a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well combined.
  4. Add the banana mixture and combine, using as few strokes as possible so you do not overmix the batter. Fold in the cranberries and nuts/seeds.
  5. Scrape into the muffin tin and smooth the tops. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
