Whole Wheat Eggless Banana and Walnut Muffins | Eggless Baking

I wish bananas lasted as long as apples did.  But they don't.  They insist on ripening, darkening, and mushy-ing faster than they should.  Several times I threw the very ripe bananas that were browned on the outside and too pulpy on the inside to consume.  Then I learned a little late that the ripe, soft bananas are perfect for making Banana Walnut Muffins.

Although my hubby and I are not the kind of people who would have muffins for breakfast, I must say these banana muffins did accompany my early morning hot chocolate milk well.  In fact, I took a few of these banana walnut muffins to a friend's place too when she had us over for dinner.

Just like I tested two blueberry muffin recipes in the other post, I tested two banana walnut muffin recipes here.  One was Tarla Dalal's and one was from Veggie Platter's blog.  The former's recipe required creaming the butter and sugar until fluffy, the latter's recipe required simply mixing in the ingredients.  Well, Tarla Dalal's banana muffin recipe did not turn out right, as you can see further below, whereas the latter's recipe resulted in muffins with good taste and texture.

To make Banana Walnut Muffins:
Prep: Preheat oven to 375F, line muffin pan with liners

Making these whole wheat banana muffins is very simple.  In a medium bowl, mash banana, mix in sugar + melted butter.  Sift dry ingredients (flour + baking powder + baking soda + salt), add to the bowl and gently mix just until combined.  Don’t overmix, don’t whip.  {The milk you see in step 3 was added because I had put excess flour by mistake, and I saved the muffin batter from becoming a muffin dough by adding milk until it became thick batter.  Yes, you can do that.  Yes, it worked.}  Stir in walnuts, reserve some.  Scoop muffin batter into liners filling it 3/4th and sprinkle reserved walnuts.  Bake for 30-35 mins @ 375F/190C until the top of muffins turn golden-brown and toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.

See how muffins look good with the dome top instead of a top that has fallen flat?  Yep.  A flat or rising muffin may taste the same, but presentation makes all the difference.

So not only are these eggless muffins, they are also healthified by using whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour, are simple to make for breakfast, and quick to bake to take it over to someone's place.

  3. Hi Nisha, thanks for this great recipe, I tried this today and they turned out really well in texture and taste, although mine were a tad darker in shade and had big cracks on the upper surface, can u suggest the reason for the same.
