Packed with whole grains and delicious banana flavor, these cinnamon banana muffins are the perfect way to use up your ripe bananas, and make for the best quick bite for breakfast!
I’ve had two spotty bananas staring me down all week, and I couldn’t figure out what to make with them. But then I thought- muffins are always good to have around!
These banana muffins are lightly sweetened, and packed with delicious cinnamon flavor. They’re easy to grab in the morning before a workout, and pair perfectly with my daily iced coffee.
I love baking muffins because they freeze well, are easy to make, and are the perfect sized treat when you’re craving something sweet.
If you love banana bread, you’re going to love these muffins. They come out SO fluffy, are made with just 10 ingredients, and can be customized to your liking.
Since I always opt for chocolate chips in my banana desserts, I decided to switch things up with a simple cinnamon flavor. If you’re feeling fancy, you can add nuts or dark chocolate to these muffins!
Ingredients in Cinnamon Banana Muffins
This recipe is such a simple one! Here’s what you’ll need to make these cinnamon banana muffins:
Ripe bananas– whenever I buy bananas, I try to buy a yellow bunch and a green bunch. I let the yellow bunch ripen over the course of the week so that I’m left with perfectly spotty bananas to bake with! The spottier the banana = the sweeter it is
Spelt flour– I love the use of spelt flour for its nutty, whole-grain taste. All-purpose flour or a 1:1 gluten-free flour blend can be a good replacement for spelt!
Eggs– eggs act as a binder in the banana muffins, but can be replaced with a flax or chia egg substitute for a vegan version
Olive oil– olive oil adds a rich taste to these muffins, without completely overpowering them
Cinnamon banana muffins are the ultimate treat to keep around. Enjoy them as part of breakfast, as a snack, or a healthier dessert.
They’re dairy-free and packed with feel-good ingredients. You can make them gluten-free by substituting a 1:1 gluten-free flour blend.
I can’t wait for you guys to try them!
Can I make this as a loaf?
I personally haven’t tried but I don’t see why not! I also have a bunch of banana breads on the blog if you were looking for a loaf recipe
Do you think oat flour would work in the place of spelt?
Hey Whittney, I haven’t tried that but it may work well!
Oat flour worked out perfectly! Added an extra banana and it turned out delicious! TY!
Amazing!! So glad it worked out
