Banana Flax Muffins

When someone warns me that a muffin recipe tastes “healthy” I am often turned away.  However, for some reason when Gracie said that about this recipe, I still wanted to make the muffins.  Maybe it was because I had flaxseed and bananas to use up anyways?  Maybe it was because she mentioned that they were modeled after muffins that she had at Starbucks?  Who knows.  All that I know is that I made the right choice.

You can find Gracie’s recipe here.

There were extremely easy to make.  I didn’t even use my stand mixer, and I use my mixer for everything!

Not only were they super easy to make, they were also delicious!  Its true, they did definitely have a “healthy” taste to them as opposed to a “desserty” taste.  But I’m ok with that.

Another thing that I really like about Gracie’s recipe is that it makes 6-7 muffins.  Not 12.  Not 18. Not 24.  The perfect amount.  Yes, I realize I could just half a recipe and get the same results…..but I’m not so good at remembering to half every ingredient when I make cookies… yeah, this is easier.

Ease: A+, really super simple.  Yes, even you could do it!
Taste: A+, really good!  They do have a more muffiny taste as opposed to a cupcake leaning muffin, so  I guess you have to be in the right kind of mood to know that you muffin won’t be super sweet.

Would I make them again? Definitely.  I have already made them a couple of times. 🙂

  1. Ah, YAY!! Thanks so much for the review, girl 🙂 It’s always so difficult for me to “invent” my own recipes because even if I think it tastes good, I’m never sure if other people will think so too (and since I live alone, I don’t have anyone to taste-test for me!). So this is very, very much appreciated 🙂


  2. oh wow – this looks great! i’m with you on the beauty of making fewer muffins. i never remember to halve recipes either and then i’m pawning away my cookies, muffins, etc. on whoever i can get to take them bc i don’t want to eat a whole batch!
