apple banana muffinsThese muffins are wonderful. I am always looking for recipes using bananas and apples and this one is a keeper. I added Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting but they are good without the frosting, too. A cup of coffee and one of these muffins in the morning is a great start to any day.

1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup oil
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 bananas, mashed
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring
2 medium apples, peeled and chopped
3/4 cup walnuts, chopped
Cream sugar and eggs with mixer; add oil, buttermilk, and bananas and continue mixing. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking soda, whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour and mix well.  Fold in vanilla, apples and walnuts with a spoon.  Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray or use cupcake papers.  Fill 1/2 to 3/4 full of muffin mixture.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 – 25 minutes.  Makes 18 to 20 muffins.  Enjoy!

  1. These look amazing! Can you leave these out a few days or do they have to be refrigerated because of the frosting?

      As long as you have them in a cool place they should be o.k. left out of the fridge for a couple days.

      1. Thank you! I just made them and they turned out great. 🙂 Awesome recipe.

  2. You have to have cream cheese frosting on this family favorite. Can’t wait to bite into one of these muffins. Take Care, BAM

    Do you have any good sugar free recipes. As we are watching our sugar.

    1. Hi Myrtle, Sorry, I don’t. There are probably some cookie recipes on here that you could use a sugar substitute.
