Banana Bran Muffin Ingredients

  • 1½ cups wheat bran 
  • ⅔ cup whole wheat white flour or whole wheat pastry flour 
  • ⅓ cup ground flaxseed 
  • ½ cup brown sugar 
  • 1 tsp baking soda 
  • 2 tsp cinnamon 
  • ½ tsp nutmeg 
  • ¼ tsp salt 
  • 1½ cups mashed bananas (3 large) 
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk 
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted and cooled 
  • 1 tsp vanilla 
  • Optional ⅓ cup mini chocolate chips 

How to Make the Banana Bran Muffin Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and spray or line a 12-cup muffin tin; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the wheat bran, flour, flaxseed, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; set aside. 
  3. In a large bowl, mash up the bananas. Add the eggs, almond milk, coconut oil, and vanilla; whisk well to combine. 
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and stir just until combined; if using fold in the mini chocolate chips. 
  5. Scoop batter into muffin wells and reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees F; bake for 18-20 minutes or until an inserted toothpick is cleanly removed. Let sit in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to finish cooling.
