Hearty Banana Flax Muffins Recipe

Hearty banana flax muffins that you can feel good about eating!




Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease the muffin pan (I like to take a paper towel, coat it in coconut oil, and coat the cups that way).

Grind your flax seeds in a blender (my fav is Vitamix) or food processor. If grinding your wheat, grind that also (I use a Wonder Mill Grain Mill).

In a large bowl or in a stand mixer, whisk together the egg, oil, honey or sugar, buttermilk and vanilla. In another bowl, stir together the flour, flax seeds, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add to the wet ingredients and stir or mix just until moistened.

Fold in the bananas and stir with a spoon. Stir in the chocolate chips if using.

Pour batter into greased muffin cups (I like to take a paper towel, coat it in coconut oil, and coat the cups that way).

Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and tops spring back when lightly touched.


I do not recommend using muffin liners – the batter really sticks to them.

Don’t have buttermilk? No problem. To one cup of milk, add one tablespoon of lemon juice or while distilled vinegar and let sit for 5 minutes, or until it starts to bubble.
